Acute Rehabilitation Center
Our goal at the Acute Rehabilitation Center at Mary Greeley Medical Center is to help patients regain as much function and independence as possible. Our trained staff provides medical care, therapy and education designed around each patient's individual needs.
The majority of patients in the Rehabilitation Center arrive after experiencing a stroke or other neurological disorders, and hip fractures. We also serve patients who have suffered major multiple traumas, brain injury, or amputations.
To measure patient progress, our specialized rehabilitation staff uses the functional independence measure, which looks at 18 key components, such as walking ability, dressing ability, ability to perform self-care in the kitchen and bathroom, as well as ability to move from bed to chair.
The functional independence outcomes at Mary Greeley Medical Center are above both regional and national averages, with patients achieving greater results over a shorter length of time. We attribute this success to our team approach and our highly individualized care.
Physicians, rehabilitation nurses, physical and occupational therapists, therapeutic recreation specialists, speech-language pathologists, psychologists, social workers, dieticians and other specialty staff work together to help patients achieve optimum independence. Members of this team meet daily to review progress and refine the patient's plan of care. Family members are included in the process so they can be a part of the patient's recovery and transition to home.
Our recently remodeled unit contains 10 private rooms, allowing for a high nurse-to-patient ratio and optimal results. The unit has a dining room, kitchenette, car simulator and other equipment to help patients practice daily living skills.
