Franklin County Medical Center operates a 35-bed extended care facility for patients who no longer require acute hospital care, but cannot be cared for at home. Our facility focuses on a home-like atmosphere where we can help each resident reach his or her highest level of physical, mental and psycho-social well being. We have a daily activity program which provides mental stimulation as well as socialization for the residents.
At FCMC we understand the aging process and special need of the geriatric population. We offer rehabilitative and restorative care under the direction of a physical therapist. We also offer around-the-clock skilled nursing care by licensed nurses and certified nursing assistants.
This facility is Medicare and Medicaid certified. Staff includes MSW, social worker, activities director, in-house pharmacy, lab, radiology, and dietitian services. Our Social Services department assists with financial resources and also provides discharge planning for those residents wishing to return home again.
Goals for each resident are to promote optimum health, dignity, self-respect and appropriate activity to enhance their quality of life. The FCMC Nursing Home is a five time recipient of the “Jean Shoonover Excellence in Care Award,” from the State of Idaho.
