Transitional Care Unit

The Transitional Care Unit (TCU) is here to provide you with special care in a residential setting as you make the transition from the hospital back to your community. The Transitional Care Unit is primarily a short-term care facility. Your length-of-stay will be based on your recovery and progress, physician’s judgment, and regulatory requirements. Although the Transitional Care Unit is a part of Passavant Area Hospital and shares many of their services, it is not a hospital. Consequently, you may often be referred to as a “resident” rather than a “patient.”
