How will I get there?
Your nurse or case manager will arrange for you to be moved to the rehab unit, which is located on the 2nd floor of the main hospital building.
How long will I be there?
This depends on your rehab needs and may vary based on the team’s assessment.
Who will be my doctor?
The physiatrist, or rehab physician, will manage your rehab program. The physiatrist will arrange for any medical consultations you may need and will provide direct medical care.
What are the visiting hours?
Visitors must be respectful of other patients and visitors while visiting, follow infection control practices, and may not interfere with care and healing. Designated visitors are welcome 24 hours a day. Suggested hours are 8:00am - 8:00pm.
What role will my family have in my rehab program?
Your family will have a very important and active role in your program. They will be asked to participate in your therapy sessions and work with the therapists and nursing staff to learn how to properly assist you. Throughout your stay, they will be provided with the necessary education and training they will need to assist you in reaching your rehab goals.
Will insurance cover my stay on the rehab unit?
After you have been evaluated by a member of our staff and found to be an appropriate candidate for our program, we will work with your insurance company to verify your benefits and gain authorization for your admission. Your case manager will notify you of your insurance coverage as well as your acceptance into the rehab program.
Is there a number I can call if I have more questions? If you have additional questions or you would like more information about our program, please call our admissions coordinator at 413-447-2748.
