Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitative Community at McKinley Health Center

McKinley Health Center at Laurelbrooke Landing in Brookville, PA, is a beautiful, innovatively designed nursing and rehabilitative community with the goal of being the best place to live. So you will feel at home, whether here for a short stay or for longer needs.

McKinley Health Center offers three neighborhoods with exceptional, professional nursing teams to meet your unique care needs:

  • Short Stay Rehab – for residents recovering from surgery or illness with the goal of returning to their own home
  • Comprehensive Care – for residents who have long-term healthcare needs
  • Memory Support – for residents with memory loss

No matter what neighborhood you reside in, McKinley Health Center offers a unique care model for the best success in managing your health issues, called transitional care planning. Chronically ill older adults are at high risk for falls, repeated hospital stays, ER visits, and nursing home admissions. The goal of transitional care planning is to ensure disease symptoms are effectively managed and the appropriate resources are utilized through transitions between levels of care, such as from McKinley Health Center back to home. Our staff will serve as your advocate, helping you navigate through the care system, ensuring nothing falls through the cracks and that all members of the care team are in the loop and communicating effectively.

What does transitional care mean for you? You’ll feel better and your symptoms will be under control. Your care team will all be on the same page and medications will be the best combination to treat your individualized symptoms. Your risk of falls and hospital admissions will go down.
