Murray Calloway county Hospital offers a full range of specialized therapy and rehabilitation in a variety of care settings: Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility, Spring Creek Skilled Nursing and Rehab Center and the Center for Rehab and Sports Medicine. Each setting offers skilled Physical, Speech and Occupational Therapy. Our licensed therapists work with physicians, nurses, registered dietitians and other health care professionals to provide a comprehensive plan which encompasses the full continuum of care for each patient. We not only treat the patient’s injury or illness from pediatrics to geriatric, but also help to prevent injuries in athletes and employees.
ACUTE INJURIES AND ILLNESS
Once a person becomes an in-patient in the hospital due to injury, surgery or illness the therapists can provide 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 in one of the post-acute care settings.
SHORT AND LONG TERM REHABILITATION
In the Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility, located in the north tower of our main campus, an interdisciplinary treatment team develops an individualized treatment plan to help the patient become as independent as possible with the activities of daily living, including mobility and homemaking skills, and facilitate re-entry into the home and community.
Another post-acute, long term care option is Spring Creek Skilled Nursing and Rehab Center. Individuals who are recovering from a long-term illness, injury or even scheduled surgeries, such as knee or hip replacement, may need on-going skilled therapy along with a higher level of care for a period of time before they are able to care for themselves at home. Spring Creek Health Care is a skilled nursing, rehabilitation and long-term care facility which provides comprehensive rehabilitation and restorative services.
OUTPATIENT CARE AT THE CENTER FOR REHAB AND SPORTS MEDICINE
Once an individual has reached a level of function that allows them to return home from an inpatient facility, they may need additional rehabilitation to help them fully recover. Or, some individuals may need rehabilitation but do not require inpatient care. An example of this could be a person who has a broken ankle and needs skilled therapy to regain strength and function as a part of the recovery process. Both of these types of patients would benefit from the services offered in our outpatient clinic, the Center for Rehab and Sports Medicine.
MAINTAINING PHYSICAL ACTIVITY
When discharged from any other level of therapy services, the patient may transition to the Center for Health and Wellness and continue to improve strength, endurance and function. The Center for Health and Wellness is a medical fitness facility that offers supervised exercise for teens and adults of all fitness levels. Medical Fitness Facilities feature the professional expertise and programming necessary to safely and effectively assist people regardless of their current health status with developing, initiating, and maintaining an active lifestyle that minimizes the risk of illness and disease and promotes health and wellness. The joining fee is waived for anyone referred from one of our hospital services.
