Although licensed as long term care, Banner Boswell's Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) is focused on short term rehab with the average length of stay for each patient being 11 days. Banner Boswell's SNF is a 79-bed facility that manages patients with neurological, orthopedic and complex medical diagnoses and illnesses that prevent these patients from returning home immediately from the hospital.

Through collaboration with strong case management and nursing teams, therapists help patients meet their goals and establish safe discharge plans in an effort to prevent readmission to the hospital.

The average daily caseload for each therapist is 6.5 hours of patient care in an 8 hour shift (7-13 patients on each therapists schedule per day). This manageable caseload allows each therapist to spend the needed time truly getting to know each of their patients in order to build the rapport and trust needed to help each patient meet their goals.
