CONTINUUM OF CARE

  

MCCH Rehabilitation Services optimizes the continuum of care with our Center for Health and Wellness, the Acute Inpatient Rehab Facility and Spring Creek Skilled Nursing and Rehab Center. The Wellness Center contributes to both ends of the spectrum. Emphasizing prevention, the Wellness Center provides opportunities for people to establish a routine of regular physical activity to reduce the risk of chronic disease. Being physically fit also ensures that when illness or injury occurs, the impact on the individual’s life is minimized. Wellness Center members that have worked to improve physical fitness report tolerating treatment and/or surgery with more ease and much quicker recovery time.

Once a person becomes an in-patient, through injury, surgery or illness, the in-patient rehab services can provide the necessary evaluation and treatment to help the patient through the acute stage. Sometimes that is all that is necessary. Frequently however, a person requires additional Physical, Speech or Occupational Therapy before going home.

In Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation, an interdisciplinary treatment team works closely together to assist individuals in reaching their goals for achieving the highest possible quality of life, whether it be in work, school, recreation, or daily living activities.

Spring Creek Skilled Nursing and Rehab Center provides short-term and long-term rehab services, also coordinated by a skilled interdisciplinary team. Patients can talk to his/her physician about which setting is best suited to his/her needs. MCCH provides rehab services for homebound patients through our homecare.

Or, patients might choose to continue rehab at the Center for Rehab and Sports Medicine, which is a full-service outpatient rehabilitation facility. In this way the individual can continue to rehabilitate in all stages of recovery.

When discharged from any other level of care the patient may transition to the Center for Health and Wellness and continue to improve strength and function, and enhance independence though a supervised exercise program.
