Post-acute Services offer the additional support many patients need when they no longer require the intense level of care provided in the inpatient (acute) hospital setting, but are too ill to return home. The Post Acute Services at Southwest General include:
Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation. Provides a bridge from hospital care until the patient can be released to a skilled nursing facility or home. Patients in Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation are required to have a minimum of three hours of combined physical, occupational, and speech therapy per day, meet certain diagnostic criteria, and demonstrate consistent functional improvement.
Specially Trained Staff Provide Quality Care for Peace of Mind
Southwest General’s Post Acute Services team of professionals is focused on providing quality care to help patients recuperate as quickly and safely as possible. Each patient receives an individualized plan of care and focused attention from experienced board-certified physicians and specially trained staff. A physiatrist and a physician specializing in rehabilitation care monitor the care and progress of patients so that they return home with an improved quality of life and so that they—and their families and loved ones—can have peace of mind while they recuperate.
