    Recovery and Results

    We continually strive to improve patient outcomes and rates of recovery and to reduce the need for patients to return to the hospital. For patients in our orthopedic program, we provide regular outcomes tracking and reporting on patients that demonstrate progress as a result of the skilled intervention provided in the areas of functional outcome measurements, a tool that tracks and measures functional mobility and activities of daily living.

    Easy Referral, Admission and Discharge

    We offer streamlined processes for referral, admission and discharge home. This enables patients to quickly receive the care they need after they leave the hospital and get home faster once they are better. We also feature progressive care planning and education designed to help prepare patients for care at home or transition to a less complex care setting as quickly as their needs allow.
