Center for Rehabilitation
Levels of Care
At Rush Oak Park Hospital, inpatient medical needs, including medical tests, can be met at a moment's notice on site. Depending on your insurance, most treatments are included in coverage.
Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation
If you require intensive rehabilitation and 24-hour medical support, the Center for Rehabilitation's Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation program provides ongoing medical intervention and comprehensive rehabilitation. You receive rehabilitation for about three hours a day, six days a week, with a goal of returning to your home and family. The goal of the Center and its nursing and therapy staff is to work with you to help you transition back to home life or to another level of care.
Patients admitted to the Skilled Care Unit at Rush Oak Park Hospital need an inpatient care setting but do not require full 24-hour medical support. The amount of therapy services you receive is based on your clinical need and ability to participate. Case managers follow your progress and work closely with the treatment team to place you in the appropriate level of care as your needs and goals evolve.
Whether you stay directly in the Center or are transferred to the Skilled Care Unit, you receive care and attention around the clock.
Patients leaving the inpatient level of care usually need additional therapies. If you are homebound, you may be referred for home therapies from a number of home health agencies.
For some patients, the Center's Outpatient Rehabilitation program will be the final stage of a successful treatment program, helping to ease their transition back to everyday life. Others may need Outpatient Rehabilitation only. Treatment may involve physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy or other specialized services.
The Industrial Health program at the Center is a certified Isernhagen Work System facility. It offers a complete package of services from prevention to rehabilitation. The programs have been developed to promote workplace wellness, prevent on-the-job injuries and ensure a safe and speedy return to work for injured employees.
