Exciting things are happening at Pittsburg Nursing Center.
A new facility will be located next to ETMC Pittsburg and include beautiful rooms with private baths or showers and the ever important feeling of home. Fine dining, quality care, and a highly-trained, friendly, local staff will be available during a patient’s stay at Pittsburg Nursing. The new building will also house a fully-equipped rehabilitation gym for treatment using the most advanced medical equipment.
“One of the best features in our community is that most of the staff, families, and residents are local to Pittsburg,” says Ashley Hong, Business Development. “There’s lots of longevity and loyalty in our community. We’re the only skilled nursing facility in Pittsburg. There won’t be a finer facility anywhere in the state of Texas.”
Please stay tuned for our groundbreaking celebration in 2017. To meet our groundbreaking goal, Pittsburg Nursing Center is in the process of a huge census push, and your support is much appreciated.
Have a great weekend!
