Transitional Care

Short-Term Rehab Before Returning Home

For those patients who need short-stay rehab, but may not be appropriate for an inpatient rehab, our Transitional facilities offer the best of both worlds: superior rehab and the highest quality, round-the-clock nursing care. Here, expert clinicians and caregivers work as a team, with one goal in mind: a faster, fuller recovery for our patients.

We have transitional rehab units at Heinz Rehab Hospital in Wilkes-Barre Township and at Allied Services Rehab Hospital in Scranton. Our transitional care units are situated within our top-ranked rehab hospitals in the United States. That means that our transitional patients have ready access to the most highly qualified therapists and nurses, the latest therapies and technologies, and safe accommodations.

Customized Care

A customized plan of care is developed for each transitional patient upon admission, based on his or her short-term rehab and nursing needs, health history and goals. A physician oversees the patient’s care in consultation with nursing and therapy professionals.

The care plan may include physical, occupational, respiratory and/or speech therapy; care coordination; medication management; and therapeutic recreation. We communicate with primary care doctors and specialists, making it easy to follow the patient’s progress.

Seamless Transitions

Transitional rehab emphasizes smooth and convenient transitions. Whether you’ve come to us from your home or a hospital, we’ll work to make the admission process safe and efficient for patients and their families. We’ll also coordinate with physicians and caregivers to help patients stay healthy and continue their progress after they leave us.

  • The Admissions process begins with a referral from your doctor or the hospital
  • We participate in Medicare and accept most insurance plans
  • Our rehab hospitals and transitional rehab facilities are fully accessible
