WILLIAM P. CLOUGH EXTENDED CARE CENTER
The residents don’t live in our facility. We work in their home.” More than words, these thoughts reflect
the way we work at The William P. Clough Extended Care Center of New London Hospital. Our 58-bed
facility is small and our staff-to-resident ratio is higher than many other elder care facilities. A group of
three hospitalists (medical doctors with a special interest in geriatrics) provides on-site care to the
residents five days a week. There is never a lengthy ambulance ride to a distant hospital or confusion due
to unavailable medical records, as emergent care with the New London Hospital Emergency Services is in
the same building.
SKILLED CARE PROGRAM
The Skilled Care Program is designed as a transitional program for patients following surgery or treatment
in the hospital. Fifty-six percent of our skilled care residents are able to return to their home environment.
