Individualized Therapy Care
Each patient receives a thorough initial evaluation by our physical and occupational therapists on the day after surgery. Our therapy team carefully considers the needs, lifestyle and comfort level of each patient as they determine the best course of rehabilitative therapy. Post-operative rehabilitation occurs on a one-to-one basis at your bedside and includes gait, transfer and balance training as well as a thorough review of available adaptive equipment.
A Comfortable Environment
The inpatient unit is part of a complete medical, diagnostic and surgical program, with many amenities to enhance patient comfort and facilitate healing. The unit was designed based on research that links recovery with the patient’s physical environment. The newer operating rooms bring together the space needed to accommodate the technology and an environment that provides the best possible outcome for patients. Patient rooms are designed to manage patient recovery from surgery and their therapy needs all in one location.
