The Pavilion Health Center
Located in The Pavilion Health Center, our skilled nursing center provides the highest level of compassionate, professional care for residents. When a patient requires short-term physical rehabilitation, the staff at Pavilion Health Center helps them find the strength to overcome setbacks following injury, illness, or accident. At admission, the clinical team starts with the mindset that all patients want to return to their prior living setting following rehab, and works with patients and their families to build a foundation of skills that supports a safe discharge. We understand that not every long-term care resident requires constant medical or cognitive management. Many of our residents just need the reassurance of a supportive environment and the availability of nurses and care personnel 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
Our staff recognizes the individuality of each long-term resident, and demonstrates complete discretion and respect at all times. Both short- and long-term care is available, as well as respite and palliative care. This can include post-surgical rehabilitation, physical and occupational therapy, and wound care. Another major benefit is the seamless access to care that Brightmore of South Charlotte residents receive. If you require additional long-term nursing care, you have peace of mind knowing you can remain in a community where you already have an established support system.
