Seamless care from your very own Otterbein team—on campus—optimizes your recovery. We manage your condition until you can return to your daily routine.

Transitional care is by definition short term—only a few weeks. But those few weeks are crucial. Skilled medical care is vital. So is continuity of communication and coordination of care. That’s why your transition is managed by people you know at Otterbein.

Otterbein Lebanon's Transitional Care Unit (TCU) is staffed with skilled nurses and therapists. We work in conjunction with your hospital discharge department or home health agency. As you progress, we teach you to manage your own needs. You learn to understand medications. You’ll recognize the signs and symptoms that should lead you to contact a health provider. You return home stronger and wiser.
