Why are skilled nursing facilities important to healthcare?

Skilled nursing facilities support the overall healthcare ecosystem by providing vital post-discharge care and monitoring to patients who need it following a hospital stay, especially for the elderly. As the U.S. population ages, the role of SNFs and nursing homes—residential facilities that provide less intensive nursing care—will continue to grow.

Skilled nursing facilities ultimately reduce post-discharge complications, helping to support positive long-term health outcomes while reducing costs associated with negative outcomes. Most insurance companies offer coverage for short-term inpatient stays.
