LMH Health Center for Rehabilitation
At LMH Health, we are dedicated to providing you and your loved ones with the comprehensive care you need for the journey to recovery. We provide both inpatient and outpatient treatment to suit your needs. If you need intensive therapy, your doctor may recommend inpatient rehabilitation, which is found at LMH Health Center for Rehabilitation, located on the fourth floor of our Main Campus. With inpatient rehabilitation, you stay at the hospital to receive therapy and other care.
The road to recovery is closer and shorter than you think: we provide superior medical care and rehabilitation services that return patients to the highest level of independence while keeping you close to home. In fact, 82% of our patients return home after an average of 11.7 days. Additionally, LMH Health is accredited by The Joint Commission, demonstrating our continued commitment to providing safe, high-quality care.
Acute Inpatient Rehab
If you’re recovering from an accident or serious illness, turn to Acute Inpatient Rehab at LMH Health’s Center for Rehabilitation for help. Our compassionate and skilled team of doctors, nurses and therapists will tailor a program to help you achieve the best recovery possible. As your partner for lifelong health, we offer quality rehabilitation services close to home.
Our approach to care
We are dedicated to providing each patient with a personalized rehab experience and collaborative rehab team to help every patient reach their goals. Because we are located in the main hospital, patients have access
to other hospital services, such as laboratory, pharmacy, and consultations as needed.
Conditions we treat
- Spinal cord injury
- Congenital deformity
- Major multiple trauma
- Fracture of femur or hip
- Neurological disorders, such
as multiple sclerosis and
- Active forms of arthritis
For other medical diagnoses, the liaison, rehab APRN and physiatrist will determine if the case meets rehabilitation criteria.
- We offer three forms of therapy: physical, occupational and speech. Physical therapy helps improve mobility, strength and fitness; reduces pain and discomfort. Occupational therapy works on activities of daily living such as grooming, dressing, bathing and bed mobility. Speech therapy works on cognition, communication and swallowing.
- For each patient, a physiatrist, APRN, and RN will oversee acute and chronic health diagnoses while receiving therapies. Patients must be able to tolerate 3 hours of therapy a day.
- Our pharmacist will review and help manage prescribed medications.
- A collaborative therapy meeting is conducted each week to review the patient’s progress and goals.
- Services provided by our social worker, dietician, medical hospitalist, psychiatric APRN and chaplain are also available.
The Transitional Care Unit (TCU) is designed to bridge the gap between acute hospital care and discharge to your home or long-term care facility. Our 17-bed, short-term skilled nursing unit provides an environment of wellness and rehabilitation, and creates a healing setting for those with an end-stage condition. The TCU is located across the hall from Acute Inpatient Care on the fourth floor of the hospital on the LMH Health Main Campus. We want you to feel at home in our facility, so we take special care to ensure you’re comfortable and at ease during your rehabilitation.
Our approach to care
Our skilled nursing unit is designed to provide a more personal level of care than one you might find at a larger facility. During your stay, you will receive an individualized plan of care that is reviewed weekly by our interdisciplinary care team. Our goal is to help you recover and return home to your daily routine by:
- Developing a plan of care with our nursing staff, physiatrist, therapists, restorative staff, dietician and social worker.
- Scheduling group meetings with your care team every week, as well as inviting family to take an active role in your care.
- Providing access to our hospitalists and other services, such as imaging and laboratory, all in one location.
