Running our Company From the BedSide Up



Running our company from the bedside up
Corporate responsibility in the healthcare setting


In this age of advancing technology, where it is increasingly important that healthcare providers stay ahead of the curve, Vibra Healthcare LLC recognizes that information is vital to our success. With that in mind, we were one of the early-adopters of electronic medical records and stand firmly behind the use of a professional outcomes data collection and reporting organization. It is our belief that by capturing relevant patient data, carefully interpreting its meaning and
applying it to the decision-making process, we effectively drive company performance from the bedside up.

Since its founding in 2004, Vibra has grown rapidly as a specialty hospital provider with a focus on the development, acquisition and operation of freestanding long term acute care and acute medical rehabilitation hospitals. Today, Vibra operates 29 facilities, including eight acute medical
rehabilitation hospitals, with more than 1,300 licensed hospital beds in 11 states. That growth has been possible because of the experienced team of management professionals who operate the company. Their willingness to embrace technology and apply it to patient care has resulted in our consistent ability to achieve outcomes for our rehabilitation patients that are above the national average.


Specialized Team Treats Patient Mix


In the rehabilitation hospital setting, Vibra treats approximately 8,000 individuals a year recovering from stroke, orthopedic, brain, and spinal cord injuries, as well as general medical complications that require an interdisciplinary team approach to improve function. Our specialized rehabilitation physicians, rehabilitation nurses, physical, occupational, speech, respiratory, and recreational therapists are focused on improving the quality of care and the satisfaction of our patients—a commitment reinforced by the fact that each of our rehabilitation hospitals is CARF accredited for its Comprehensive Integrated Inpatient
Rehab and Stroke Specialty Programs.

Thanks to our focus on data collection, our patients know what to expect during their stay from the moment they are first admitted from how long they will be there to what improvements they can anticipate. Based on information gathered from previous patients with similar diagnoses, this information not only serves the patient well, but also helps us make sound business decisions.

Patient Outcomes Exceed National Averages


Vibra consistently discharges a higher percentage of patients to the community when compared to the national average for rehabilitation hospitals. At the same time, patients served at a Vibra rehabilitation hospital will return home in a shorter amount of time—three days less than the national average—compared to other rehabilitation hospitals.

With the focus of improving a patient’s ability to function successfully at home, our team ensures that individuals are making gains on a daily basis. In fact, patients receiving rehabilitation at a Vibra rehabilitation hospital demonstrate a greater functional change per day compared to the national average in other rehabilitation facilities. One way in which we ensure the best for our patients is by structuring our treatment teams and patients by diagnosis. In this way we have therapists and nurses dedicated to treating patients with similar diagnoses making it possible to maintain outcomes across all patients. Through the use of thoughtful documentation, we monitor patient progress on a weekly basis, guiding our treatment and driving our staffing model from the bedside up.

Individual Diagnoses Confirm Consistent Care


When comparing the same indicators across the types of patients served—length of stay, community discharges and functional change per day—our quality of care is consistent. Our length of stay remains below the national average. Overall, community discharges are at or above the national benchmark. And, the amount of functional change per day is higher for our patients than the national average.

Our performance on individual factors drives what we do when patients with similar diagnoses come through our door. By analyzing data, we learn how to better treat patients with similar diagnoses and ensure we continually improve care.

Patient-Centered Care Drives Business


Vibra’s commitment to quality care is evident through our successful outcomes, but it would not be possible without our focus beginning and ending with the patient.

The clinical documentation we gather at the individual patient level drives the clinical decisions we make and impacts our patient outcomes, but it also influences future business development. By accurately interpreting and applying our patient successes in the rehabilitation environment, we can build stronger programs and new innovative treatment techniques thanks to improved case management, clinical, and financial outcomes.

Today our rehabilitation hospitals are pioneering new treatments in areas such as spasticity management, locomotor training and voice recovery. The success of our patients not only contributes to our mission of being an innovative and visionary leader in the industry, but also helps chart the next course of patient-focused rehabilitation programs for patients throughout Vibra’s system of hospitals.
