Our Staff

Altoona Nursing & Rehabilitation Center would like to celebrate the importance of ethics, compassion, and commitment in the healthcare profession by thanking our nurses, volunteers and staff for their hard work and dedication day in and day out. Skilled nursing home care frequently begins with an on-site assessment at the hospital and continues through an initial conference and discharge planning. Our licensed professionals are available to answer questions and address any concerns you or your family may have.

As residents’ conditions progress and they move through different care levels, our staff works with their families and their physicians to transition them to the most appropriate senior care setting. Each resident’s short- or long-term care is customized to their individual needs and preferences and delivered around the clock by trained nursing professionals.
