Our hospital works in partnership with RehabCare to provide therapy to medically complex patients who require specialized treatment and extended recovery time within a long-term acute care hospital setting. RehabCare employs highly skilled therapists who are specially trained to meet the needs of the long-term acute care patient. Our customized, interdisciplinary approach is unmatched, and we encourage all patients to participate in therapy within the rehab gyms – even if they are on mechanical ventilation. We believe that when patients are out of their rooms and moving, it helps both the physical and emotional healing process. Various types of therapy are used during recovery, including:
For patients who are not yet ready for gym rehab, our therapy staff provides comprehensive bedside treatment. In addition, we employ restorative aides to assist with range of motion, out-of-bed transfers, positioning, splinting and much more. Restorative aides work closely with the rehab staff to make the transition to therapy as smooth as possible.
