Short Term Care | Gardner Rehabilitation

Recovering from an injury or surgery can be a daunting, complicated process. Various levels of care are required and as the healing ensues the patient’s needs may change. People who do not require the full services of a hospital are often thrilled to get out of one. Should they need some skilled care in transition, before heading home under their own power, the Gardner Rehab is happy to welcome them to our Short Stay program, regardless of their age.

Everything about the Gardner Rehab’s Short Stay program is focused on providing the ideal environment for rapid and complete healing, and getting you back on your feet as soon as possible. This is a goal-driven program. In fact, on your first day with Gardner Rehab, our medical team will work with you and your family, taking into account any applicable medical professional’s input, to devise a realistic discharge date. The time between admittance and the discharge date will be broken down further into a detailed schedule of daily activities and healing treatments. Our healthcare professionals will know your limits and the steps necessary to lead to full recovery and avoid further injury.

Our multidisciplinary team consists of 10 primary care doctors (all regularly available), an experienced nursing team and a full compliment of rehabilitation professionals. We are proud to offer the following services:

Whatever your short term care needs may be, Gardner Rehab has a program that will work wonders for you. Just don’t be surprised if you enjoy your time here so much that you don’t want to leave…Thank you for your interest in Gardner Rehab!
