A guide through the new Edgemoor Hospital in Santee California. A Distinct Part Skilled Nursing Facility


What services do we provide?

  • 24-hour skilled nursing care
  • Physical rehabilitation
  • Recreational, occupational, physical, speech, and respiratory therapies

How do people qualify for Admission?

  • Must have a physician directive that short- or long-term Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) care is required.
  • Must have clear evidence establishing that the patient cannot be cared for by any other private sector/facility.
  • Must be eligible for Medicaid and/or Medicare, or pay privately for services on a monthly basis.

How do people apply for Admission?

On the recommendation of the attending physician and acute care hospital, discharge planners contact an Edgemoor Admissions staff member with patient health information. Edgemoor staff visits the prospective patient (if necessary), contacts the patient's nurses and physicians, and reports back to an admissions committee. The committee determines if Edgemoor can care for the patient appropriately, and, if so, the patient is admitted.

What alternatives are there to this service?

Private sector skilled nursing facilities, or a lower level of care (intermediate-level care, board and care, or home care).

Is anything unique about this service?

  • The availability of physical rehabilitation services for both short- and long-term Edgemoor patients.
  • Edgemoor is a distinct part of the San Diego County Psychiatric Hospital (and is licensed accordingly as a Distinct Part Skilled Nursing Facility).
  • Extensive experience in caring for Huntington's Chorea patients.
