From the first day of admission after surgery, illness or injury, rehabilitation services are available to support the road to recovery. Education, equipment recommendations, safe discharge planning, and encouraging first interventions for walking, talking, eating, dressing, and moving all occur during your hospital stay via the dedicated therapy team.
Patients no longer requiring acute hospitalization, but with needs for intensive, comprehensive, interdisciplinary rehabilitation may be considered for this level of care. Patients with a significant loss in function due to a disabling illness or injury maximize recovery through coordination of care between nursing, therapy services, and a rehabilitation physician. Patient centered care focuses on supporting patients to return to their community to live as independently as possible.
