ARLINGTON – Medical City Arlington is commemorating the fifth anniversary of its 16-bed inpatient rehabilitation unit. Since opening in June 2017, the Rehabilitation Institute at Medical City Arlington has provided individualized care to thousands of patients to help them regain function and return to an independent lifestyle.
“As we celebrate five years of delivering comprehensive, acute inpatient rehabilitation services, I want to thank our dedicated, multi-disciplinary rehab team for the outstanding care they provide to each of our patients every day,” Medical City Arlington COO Skyler Reed says. “This high-quality rehabilitation program is just another example of how Medical City Arlington continues to increase our capabilities and expertise to serve the healthcare needs of our community.
Since Medical City Arlington is certified as a Comprehensive Stroke Center, stroke rehabilitation patients and their families can be assured that inpatient rehab care is provided according to national quality standards. Other patients who may benefit from acute inpatient rehabilitation include those recovering from hip fractures, joint replacements, trauma, amputations, neurological disorders, burns and more.
Under the guidance of board-certified physical medicine and rehabilitation physician, individualized therapy is provided by licensed physical, occupational and speech therapists, with a minimum of 15 hours of skilled therapy weekly. Specially trained rehabilitation nurses, many of whom hold advanced certifications in rehabilitation nursing, enhance the continuity of care between therapy sessions. In addition, hospital-based care assures immediate access to other medical care and specialty services, such as imaging, respiratory, pharmacy and emergency services, when needed.
