Transitional Care Rehabilitation Center


When you or a loved one require extended medical care or therapy after hospitalization for surgery, illness or injury, Luther Manor is here to help you on the road to recovery.

Our Transitional Care Rehabilitation Center offers therapy services in a comfortable, healing environment. Skilled nursing care is provided by a dedicated team of professionals and licensed, experienced therapists who offer one-on-one care. Whether you need physical, occupational or speech therapy services, we can help.

Our team of nurses, therapists, social workers and client relations professionals will work with hospital discharge planners and physicians to make your transition to the Rehabilitation Center effortless. During your stay, we will provide education and support to prepare you and your family for your return home.

Luther Manor has medical doctors on-site to oversee your recovery; however, we will work with your current doctor during your stay, provided he can be reached to verify your medication and therapy needs. Dr. Mark Horneffer is our medical director and runs our medical services.

Privacy with all the comforts of home

The Transitional Care Rehabilitation Center, located adjacent to our outdoor courtyard, is a designated area within the Luther Manor Wauwatosa campus. In addition to personalized, expert medical care, our center offers a variety of accommodations and services to provide you with comfort, privacy and a positive overall health care experience.

Transitional Care Rehabilitation Center amenities include:

  • Private rooms
  • Unrestricted, pet-friendly visiting hours
  • Wi-Fi access
  • Separate entrance with convenient visitor parking
  • Televisions and telephones in each room
  • Dining room and in-room meal service options, as well as snacks and beverages

While the Transitional Care Rehabilitation Center is a separate facility on the Luther Manor campus, our guests and visitors are welcome to take advantage of our many on-site amenities: a pharmacy, a beauty salon and barber shop, two convenience stores, an ice cream parlor and a variety of social and entertainment opportunities. Luther Manor offers Lutheran church services on Sunday mornings and Catholic Mass twice a month.
