Skilled Nursing Facility

An award-winning, short-stay transitional unit designed for patients who are not strong enough to go home after their hospital stay but are not sick enough to remain admitted to the hospital.

Singing River’s Skilled Nursing Facility located within Pascagoula Hospital is the ONLY Five-Star Rated facility on the Mississippi Gulf Coast by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS). Now, we’re expanding that same award-winning care at the new Skilled Nursing Facility at Singing River Gulfport.

About Our Patients

The Skilled Nursing Facility is designed as a short-stay rehabilitation center for patients who are not strong enough to go home after their hospital stay while recovering from an illness or injury but are not sick enough to remain admitted to the hospital.

Many of our patients are recovering from stroke, heart attack, hip fractures, hip replacements, and knee replacements.

Our dining rooms also offer a selection of nutritional meals for your visitors and family members. There are also vending machines throughout the facility.
