Designed for Outcomes: Our New Rehabilitation and Occupational Therapy Gym Speeds Successful Recoveries

In choosing a post-hospital rehabilitation program after a surgery, illness or injury, you want every possible advantage to achieve a full and speedy recovery, and a return to the lifestyle that brings enjoyment, meaning and purpose to your life. While there are numerous post-hospital care options available today, not all of them are equal in terms of the number and type of services they offer, and the quality of results they achieve.

Making the wrong decisions can result in readmission to the hospital, a longer recovery period and greater expenses. Therefore, it is important to take the time to consider your alternatives, and to study the pros and cons of each.

A key part of the decision-making process involves focusing on the most important factors for your rehabilitation and recovery. According to the American Hospital Association, Medicare and other expert sources, there are certain criteria that patients and their families should always consider in selecting the right post-hospital care center. Two of the top considerations today are:

  • Specialized services for the type of post-hospital care you need
  • High-quality patient recovery outcomes and high patient satisfaction in comparison to state and national standards
