Acute Care Hospital Unit

If you need hospitalization or post acute care, Masonicare offers a warm, home-like place to recover in comfort. Our hospital-level Acute Care Unit features a caring, specially trained staff and beautifully appointed rooms where you can focus on recovery.

What is Acute Care?

Post acute care, or acute care recovery, is around-the-clock medical attention to help patients recover from conditions such as:

  • Acute MI (heart attack)
  • Pneumonia
  • Heart failure
  • Unstable angina
  • Septicemia
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Urosepsis
  • COPD

At Masonicare in Connecticut, the focus of acute care is to restore seniors to their previous level of function, encouraging self-sufficiency and independent living.

Admissions: Patients can be admitted 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Your primary care physician will make arrangements with Masonicare. Acute care is considered a hospital admission and is covered by Medicare and most insurance providers.
