Transitional care unit (TCU) in Brevard, North Carolina

If you’re recovering from an injury or illness, we're here to help you recover.

At Transylvania Regional Hospital, our compassionate physical and occupational therapists are committed to helping you feel your best. They combine their rehabilitation experience with the latest therapies to help restore your mobility and sense of independence.

Conditions that may benefit from rehabilitation

You may benefit from inpatient physical rehabilitation if you have undergone an invasive surgical procedure, or suffered a serious injury, such as:

  • Amputations
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Joint replacement surgeries
  • Ligament tears
  • Muscle injuries
  • Strokes
  • Traumatic brain injuries

Our transitional care unit

Our five-star, fully-accredited TCU facilitates recovery by providing the nursing and rehabilitative support you need to regain your strength.

What is a TCU?

A TCU is a short-term stay facility for when you need nursing and rehabilitative care. Usually, short-term stays are three weeks or less. The average length of stay at our facility is 14 days. You can access specialized medical services and multidisciplinary care at transitional care units, which are generally hospital-based facilities.

If you have undergone acute surgical procedures, such as fracture reduction or joint replacement, then the therapy offered at our care unit will ease the transition from the hospital to home.
