Rehabilitation

Joint Rehabilitation Unit

Challenge

The Joint Rehabilitation program, responding to patient and physician demand, needed to grow as well as provide full service rehabilitation in  a contemporary, amenity-rich setting.

Solution

Gut renovation of a racetrack-designed double-loaded corridor style patient unit at the Wakefield campus provided ample space for a predominantly private room patient unit with Physical Therapy and Activities for Daily Living located on-Unit.  The continuous corridor loop also serves as a safe ambulation path to enhance recover time for patients.

Result

Forty patients can be accommodated on this Unit, with rooms sized for the decreased mobility physical rehabilitation patients experience. The on-Unit features encourage patient movement for quicker balance, confidence and discharge.
