Long Term Care

Call for more information: 770-219-8600

Northeast Georgia Health System has two long term care facilities, New Horizons Limestone and New Horizons Lanier Park.

Northeast Georgia Health System’s transitional care unit is a sub-acute unit located at New Horizons Limestone. This unit is designed to offer medical and rehabilitation services to patients who no longer need the acute nursing care offered on other hospital units but who are not yet ready to be discharged to their homes or to a nursing care facility.

COVID-19 Updates

While visitation at our facilities remains closed for now, we want you to know we are doing everything we can to keep your loved ones safe and healthy.

Residents are assessed a minimum of every 12 hours for signs and symptoms of COVID-19. If any symptoms arise, testing is recommended. Additionally, our communal dining and group activities have been cancelled, in accordance with social distancing guidelines, and all residents are encouraged to wear masks at all times.

Our staff are screened each day for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and are required to wear masks and other appropriate personal protective equipment while in our facilities. Extensive daily cleaning takes place every day, as well as when the Georgia National Guard stops by for further cleaning which has happened on two occasions.

What is a Transitional Care Unit?

The Transitional Care Center (TCC) is a center designed for short-term rehabilitation patients and patients who need additional care in order to make a successful transition from hospital to home. The center is located at New Horizons Limestone but includes separate dining and activity areas specifically for TCC patients as well as a dedicated entrance for family members and visitors.

The care in the TCC focuses on rehabilitation with the goal of transitioning the patient to home within 30 days. Appropriate levels of rehab are provided by Northeast Georgia Medical Center’s physical thera-pists, speech pathologists and occupational therapists.
