The Renaissance Skilled Nursing Facility is an interdisciplinary rehabilitation program tailored to help people become more independent. It serves as a bridge between acute care and return to home or alternative living, providing a more focused and consistent level of support and attention than what would be available in a traditional rehabilitation setting.

Our mission is to provide safe, quality nursing and rehabilitation care to patients recovering from hospitalization.

The Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Unit is a hospital-based facility governed by the same regulations as nursing homes in the District of Columbia.


The Director of Nursing is accountable for assessing, planning, directing, and evaluating nursing care in the skilled nursing and rehabilitation units. The Director assures adherence to Sibley Renaissance policies and procedures and supports and fosters the Sibley Renaissance mission and vision. The Director of Nursing is responsible for the quality of care provided to patients and the processes that lead to continuous performance. His/Her role includes clinical practice, staff development and continuing education, management and leadership, consultation and support. He/She assures that the Sibley Renaissance is in compliance with the requirements of the District of Columbia, Federal, and other appropriate regulations. The Director of Nursing works with members of administration, physicians, and other members of the interdisciplinary staff to assure that lines of communication are open and processes for quality patient care and problem resolution are in place.
