Program areas at Seabrook of Hilton Head
Fraser health care is a medicare certified 33 bed all private room skilled nursing facility within the Seabrook. It provides private pay services to resident members of the Seabrook at reduced per diem rates of 275/members and 370 to the general public. The daily rate for members is the 7th lowest out of the 50 states compared to the median cost of a private room. This helps extend seniors resources and keeps residents from accessing medicaid. The per diem rates are lower than the daily cost of operation and are subsidized by the Seabrook. Hospice respite care is available to the community.
