We appreciate your interest in applying for admission to Eger Health Care and Rehabilitation Center. An application and procedures for admission are available as well as additional information about specific programs and services. Facility tours are welcomed at any time.
We take pride in our reputation for excellence which we have earned since our founding in 1916. We are affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America’s Division of Social Ministry with a specific mission to bring comfort, healing and hospitality to all persons, especially the aged and infirm.
Eger Health Care and Rehabilitation Center is a 378 bed residential health care facility which provides twenty-four (24) hour skilled nursing care. We also offer short-term rehabilitation, sub-acute, complex medical and nursing care, palliative and hospice care.
Payment for the care provided at Eger may be covered by Medicare, an individual insurance policy, private resources or Medicaid, depending on the prospective resident’s condition and circumstances. An application will be prepared for Medicaid coverage, if a resident meets the resource levels.
The Eger application for admission must be completed by the applicant or family member. If the applicant is in the hospital, the hospital will send Eger a Patient Review Instrument (PRI) and Screen. If the applicant is at home, a certified home health agency can send a nurse to the home to conduct the PRI evaluation.
Eger Health Care and Rehabilitation Center is operated for the benefit of all persons without restrictions as to race, color, creed, national origin, age, sex, sexual preference, blindness, handicap, disability, religion, marital status, source of payment or sponsor.
Again, thank you for your inquiry and for considering Eger in meeting the short or long term health care needs of yourself or that of a loved one.
