Harbor Hospital Center news: All hospitals have basically thsame environment: doctors, nurses, white hospital gowns, hospital food and of course that "special" hospital smell. The Harbor Center has gone out of its way to develop a different facility. The fifth floor has been transformed into a traditional, extended-care setting that offers a home-like atmosphere, including patients wearing their street clothes and participating in daily individual and group activities. The center's extended-care facility is one of five in the state. Most of the residents must be taught lifestyle changes to live with medical conditions. The program's goal is to return 85 percent of the residents to their homes or family members. For more information, call 347-2563.
