Cranberry Place Services

Cranberry Place bridges the gap between hospital and home by providing continuing care for people who have been in the hospital for major surgery, neurological diseases, cancer, or other medical treatments.

  • Registered nurse supervisors direct nursing care, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Residents may continue using their personal physician of choice. In addition, Cranberry Place offers several credentialed physicians from which to choose.
  • Hospice services are available to support residents and families in coping with loved ones who are terminally ill or in the end stage of an illness.
  • An on-site dialysis unit provides easy access to dialysis care and is also available on an outpatient basis.

  • A registered, licensed dietitian monitors each resident’s nutritional status and oversees the delivery of therapeutic diets, as ordered by the attending physician.
  • Discharge planning offers continuity of care, which is crucial when a resident is ready to go home or move to another facility. Our staff works to make the necessary arrangements and a seamless transition.
