About Our Services
A Leader in Innovative Post-Hospital Care
Mid-Atlantic Health Care is a skilled nursing and rehabilitation provider with 21 facilities in Maryland and Pennsylvania. Our facilities provide quality geriatric care, including rehabilitation services, skilled nursing services, long-term care, and hospice care.
Focused on Patient Outcomes
Mid-Atlantic Health Care is a modern skilled care company. In addition to the traditional services provided for seniors in the areas of medical and memory issues, we focus on a dynamic new environment in which more than 90% of our admissions can return to their homes following treatment.
New specialties including high-tech, high-touch geriatric care, acute rehabilitation, complex medical treatment in a vertically integrated team setting and long-term ventilation care are all part of Mid-Atlantic’s approach to improved care for senior citizens in our region.
Our Company History
A Clinical Approach to Management

Mission and Philosophy
An Extension of the Communities We Serve
Mid-Atlantic Health Care’s mission is both remarkably simple and enormously challenging. We feel that the facilities we own and manage should be an extension of the communities we serve … and represent the best healthcare practices available in those communities.
Attention to Detail From the Ground Up
Mid-Atlantic Health Care selectively operates healthcare facilities for other ownership groups. With more than 25 years of experience in the management and turnaround of healthcare facilities, our model has a proven track record of success.
Physician Owned. Patient Focused.

The Step Up Unit™
Our Approach to Patient Care
Mid-Atlantic Health Care employs Step Up Units™ in its facilities that are equipped to provide a higher level of care, such as oxygen and IV care, as well as more frequent physician visits. Step Up Unit™ care providers also have access to data-mining software that enables them proactively monitor, identify and treat patients’ potential health problems — helping them manage the patient’s care at the facility and prevent hospital re-admission.
