SubAcute Care

If it is determined that a student is too ill to remain on campus but does not require full hospitalization, he/she/zi may be referred to the SubAcute Care Program at Grinnell Regional Medical Center (GRMC).  Students are referred to the SubAcute Care Program by a physician in consultation with our Medical Director, Dr. Jerome Wehr, or our Assistant Director/Lead Nurse, Deb Shill, R.N.

In the SubAcute Care Program, students stay at GRMC over night and receive limited nursing care and meals, provided by GRMC staff, at no cost.  All other expenses, including lab work, physician visits, physical therapy, and prescribed medication, will be billed to you.
