Symphony Post Acute Network has helped redefine the skilled nursing, transitional care business—so much so, some other providers in Symphony’s markets are banding together to stay competitive. But what exactly does Symphony’s model involve?

It’s a mixture of elements that together create a “super SNF,” Symphony President Tim Fields said Tuesday at the Post Acute Link Care Continuum Conference in Chicago. Symphony is based in the Windy City, and the Chicago area is the largest market for the company, which pulls in about $400 million in revenue annually.

The “super SNF” model, also known as a medical resort, combines medically complex care with high-end hospitality. It’s not a brand-new idea; Symphony and one of its development partners, Carmel, Indiana-based Mainstreet, have been among a few organizations to pioneer and go big on this type of facility over the past several years.
