Activities include group physical therapy twice a day in the gym and a group lunch for patients, their families and staff. Patients and their families benefit from each other’s camaraderie and support, which promotes faster healing and eliminates the fear factor associated with rehabilitation.
Each day, a different newsletter is delivered to the patient, providing a list of daily activities, expectations and tips.
Our relationships with patients of the Center for Advanced Spine and Joint Care continue long after discharge. Follow-up calls give the team an opportunity to monitor each patient’s progress, answer questions and say thanks for choosing MacNeal. Continuous improvement is one of our goals and the measurement of patient outcomes is integral to our success.
Reunion luncheons give us an opportunity to reconnect with our patients and learn more about their experience. Patients and a friend or family member will be invited to join some of our doctors, nurses, and therapists for lunch to celebrate their success. This also gives patients an opportunity to catch up with other patients that participated in the program. Complimentary parking is available in the east parking lot south of the hospital.
