What We Do

The Skilled Nursing Facility at Barnes-Kasson Hospital is a 58-bed unit, licensed as a skilled nursing facility by the Pennsylvania Department of Health, and certified by Medicare and the PA Dept. of Public Welfare to provide skilled care.

Our staff consists of highly trained professionals committed to both our residents/families in the community. We provide ongoing training to our staff with international in-service and off-site specialty training, keeping up with the latest information on how to best care for our residents.
