St. Vincent's Medical Center Southside Total Joint Rehabilitation Unit Managed By Brooks
Total Joint Rehabilitation for a Total Body Recovery
The Total Joint Rehabilitation Unit exists because we believe that a positive state of mind speeds recovery. Our program is located in the newly renovated wing in St. Vincent's Medical Center Southside with a vibrant, active environment featuring private patient rooms and a pleasant, private dining room to make sure you are comfortable during your stay. Our ultimate goal is for every patient to return home safely and to recover successfully.
Highly Specialized Experts
All therapy is administered by highly-specialized experts with advanced training in orthopedic rehabilitation. We also have a team of specially-trained nurses on hand to provide around-the-clock nursing care. The program is guided by a physician with board certification in physical medicine and rehabilitation.
Our newly renovated wing is fully wired to allow patients to stay in touch with loved ones. We offer free WIFI Internet access with lightweight laptops available. Patients and visitors can also watch their favorite movies using our Netflix account.
Upon admission, each patient receives an MP3 player to support their therapy program with education, exercise instruction, relaxation lessons, and motivating music. DVD/video technology, including the Wii Fit, will enhance the therapy experience so you can easily continue your exercise program at home.
Our dedicated gym space is filled with state-of-the-art equipment. We also have a simulated kitchen and laundry room to teach patients adaptive techniques for a safe and functional return home. A case manager will coordinate your rehabilitation and help plan your continued care after discharge.
