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.
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.
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.
