We are a 5-star rated (CMS, AHCA), 120-bed skilled nursing center that is centrally located between St. Petersburg and Clearwater in Pinellas Park, Florida. With 8 hospitals in a 10 mile radius, the center’s team offers skilled services such as post-surgical care, IV therapy, exceptional wound care, pain management, and respiratory care. Speech, occupational, and physical therapy is available 7 days a week, and specialty programs such as stroke rehab and outpatient therapy are available as well. Pinellas Park Care and Rehabilitation has also earned the Signature HealthCARE Clinical Excellence Award for excellent clinical outcomes.
Signature HealthCARE (SHC) of Pinellas Park has received accreditation for 2014 as a skilled nursing facility actively performing Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement activities.
The accreditation, presented by independent accreditor Providigm, LLC, demonstrates that the facility is continually assessing residents’ quality of life with regard to concerns such as pain, dignity, respect for resident choice, and quality of care problems such as whether there are enough staff to meet resident needs, weight loss, infections, rehabilitation following acute injury or illness, and prevention of readmissions to hospital.
Signature’s Urban Segment has been highlighting different cultures since September 2014 in the Quality of Life department. Every month a country is celebrated with weekly activities representing that specific country. Staff and residents learn about the culture which includes, crafts, food, language, famous landmarks, and learning about the customs and traditions.
China was highlighted during the month of February. Urban Indiana, Urban North, and Urban South celebrated the Chinese New Year on February 19, 2015. Each community in Urban created their own version of the Chinese dragon for their celebration. The top two dragons in each sub-segment were the winners! The residents are still talking about the celebrations held at their communities.
These words, in many ways, defined 2014 for Signature HealthCARE. The Revolution brought our total number of locations to 125. We welcomed new centers to the family and took pivotal steps to position SHC as an integrated care network capable of meeting health care needs across the full spectrum of care. We expanded into new business lines while continuing to enhance and invest in existing service offerings.
This Veterans Day, Signature HealthCARE would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of our nation’s military veterans, and those still actively serving. We especially want to thank all of our residents and stakeholders who served our country.
Happy Veterans Day from the Signature family to yours.

We recently had a very exciting day in our therapy gym. We had a patient graduate from our program after seven weeks of therapy that included physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy. When Mr. L came to us he required assistance from staff with all activities including bed mobility, bathing and dressing, and verbally expressing his needs. He was unable to walk and needed a feeding tube for nutrition. Upon discharge to home, he was taking care of all his needs, walking unlimited distances, and was back to eating solid foods. It was very exciting watching him walk out the door and return to his everyday activities!
