Two gold  U.S. News & World Report badges for long-term rehabilitation and short-term care.U.S. News & World Report evaluates nearly 16,000 skilled nursing facilities (nursing homes) across the United States, annually. The organization creates a calculation that rates the best skilled nursing facilities at 4.5 to 5 stars. This rating is based on each facility’s performance over time, calculating key quality care measurements, in conjunction with therapy hours and nursing staff to patient ratios. This time-lapsed measurement makes such a designation for skilled nursing facilities difficult to achieve. Only 26 facilities in the state of North Carolina earned such a designation. North Carolina currently has 425 skilled nursing facilities.

Short-term Nursing and Rehabilitation Services

Atrium Health Jesse Helms Nursing Center provides short-term nursing and therapy for individuals recovering from surgery, illness or accident. Short-term programs help residents achieve their maximum functional capacity and return to their homes and communities in the shortest time possible.

To achieve this goal, residents may receive physical, occupational and speech therapy from compassionate, skilled therapists. Therapists are part of a comprehensive care team that includes physicians, nurses, social workers, nutritionists and others who work with the resident and family members to develop an individualized plan of care and goals for each patient.

Our long-term care services are designed for individuals who can no longer be cared for at home or in an assisted living facility. Long-term care services can include:

We believe in quality care, compassion and enhancing the lives of every individual.

Residents needing end-of-life care deserve to be treated with dignity, respect and compassion. We deliver care that is focused on the resident's and family's preference.
