Cordele Health and Rehabilitation Center (CHRC) is a 100-bed skilled nursing facility that offers long-term rehabilitation services to patients facing cardiac, orthopedic, neurological or other health challenges. Our goal is to help patients return home with their previous level of function restored and an improved quality of life. Services at CHRC include 24-hour nursing care, complete with IV therapy and wound care; physical, occupational and speech therapy; dental, ophthalmic and podiatric care; and a wide range of specialized services.
Also located in CHRC is a 10-bed short-term Medicare unit, specializing in short-term rehabilitation for those recovering from illness, injury or surgery. After discharge, patients either return home or to assisted living, or they may stay in the long-term facilities available at CHRC.
CHRC hosts a variety of recreational, arts and crafts and social activities that enhance emotional, mental and spiritual health. We are one of two rehabilitation centers owned and operated by Crisp Regional Health Services, along with Crisp Regional Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
