Capitol View Transitional Care Center: Intensive rehabilitation to get you home

When you need care after a surgery or hospital stay, the team at Capitol View Transitional Care Center is here to help. We’re a 32-bed transitional care center located in St. Paul that specializes in intensive, short-term rehabilitation. Our transitional care services include inpatient therapy and nursing care designed to help you transition back to your home and into your community.

Our transitional care team works together to form rehabilitation plans tailored to the individual needs of our patients. Based on your unique needs, you might work with registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, social workers, nursing assistants, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech therapists or a registered dietitian.

We accept patients from all hospitals, clinics and homes. We’ll partner with you and your family to help you live as independently as possible.

Capitol View Transitional Care Center is part of the HealthPartners family of care. We’re located inside Regions Hospital, but we are a separate nonprofit organization.

Resources at our transitional care unit

You’ll get access to the resources you need when you need them, including:

  • An onsite HealthPartners doctor and nurse practitioner team five days a week
  • Physical and occupational therapy seven days a week
  • Access to Regions Hospital café, chapel, gift shop and other amenities
  • Free Wi-Fi and parking
  • Private rooms, for an additional charge

We’ll provide intensive rehabilitation to help you recover the skills and abilities you need to go home as quickly and safely as possible. Depending on your needs, you may have intensive physical, occupational and speech therapy 2-3 hours a day, up to seven days a week. Most patients stay with us for about two weeks.

During your stay at our transitional care center, you’ll have a dedicated team, including registered nurses, social workers, dietitians, and occupational, physical and speech therapists. We’ll help you prepare to go home, build your confidence and be self-sufficient.

Once you’re home, it’s our goal to help you stay there. We’ll set up any home health care or outpatient therapy you may need to continue your recovery and maximize your independence.
