Continuing Care Center

The Continuing Care Center of Burnett Medical Center is a long-term and rehabilitative care facility that provides necessary health services while maintaining an atmosphere of hope, harmony and humor in a home-like environment.

Everyone receiving care is encouraged to make the center a "home" away from home, even for a brief restorative stay. Family photographs, furniture, and quilts are the special touches of home commonly found in individual's rooms.

Personalized and Skilled Care

The staff provides personalized care for each resident through a care plan developed upon admission, which is based on the resident's desires/goals and care team assessment. Families are encouraged to participate in care conferences where recovery and/or rehabilitative progress is reviewed and recommendations are made.

The Continuing Care Center's goal is to help each resident achieve his/her maximum level of independent functioning. Although a resident may not be acutely ill from an injury or illness, the restorative and/or rehabilitative services regularly provided help continue the recovery process or maintain the current physical condition.

Residents and/or family members are encouraged to discuss their particular health insurance coverage and payment options with the Social Services Department when admission is being planned.

Admission orders are written by physicians, but family members or social service agencies may also request referrals by calling the Continuing Care Center Social Workers at 715-463-7278.

The Continuing Care Center is certified by Medicare and Medicaid and is licensed by the Wisconsin Department of Health and Human Services.
