Post Facility billing

We are in the process of building a 12-bed palliative care free-standing residential center. We plan to contract with the local hospital and hospice programs. However, is there a way to bill Medicare or third-party payers for a patient's stay, perhaps like long-term acute care facilities, skilled nursing facilities do. I am only familiar with physician billing.
