Patients who are recovering from orthopedic reconstructive surgery regain
strength and mobility with the help of the skilled therapists of Garden
City Hospital’s 24-bed inpatient rehabilitation unit. One of the
first of its kind in the area, the unit has provided rehabilitative care
for more 20 years. With a focus on patient satisfaction, the unit’s
dedicated and caring staff has consistently been scored at 98 percent
and above in patient satisfaction surveys.
Complete with 18 private rooms, group activity and assisted living areas,
the inpatient rehabilitation unit provides closely monitored care and
customized rehabilitation plans, focusing on the unique needs and abilities
of each patient. Certified by the American Osteopathic Association, the
unit involves certified pain management and rehabilitation physicians
in care plans. Rehabilitation nurses staff the unit around the clock.
The team of rehabilitation experts also includes case managers, wound care
specialists, therapeutic recreation specialists, physical therapists,
occupational therapists, audiologists, speech pathologists, and psychologists.
Working in both individual and group settings, therapy takes place every day.
At Garden City Hospital, 99 percent of patients maintain or improve their
functional ability three months after discharge from the rehabilitation
unit. Social services and comprehensive discharge planning for families
needing assistance caring for a loved one is also available.
