Continuum of Care
Help at every turn.
Mary Free Bed offers services to support every stage of recovery after an injury, illness, surgery or debilitating condition. We’re available for everything from a short course of treatment or a lifetime of care.
We can help determine which level of care is most appropriate for your needs and will coordinate the admissions process to ensure you have a positive experience.
People with traumatic injuries or conditions often need specialized, continued medical care after they’ve been discharged from an acute-care hospital. If this is your situation, your physician may recommend intensive rehabilitation in a hospital setting. Research shows the sooner you begin vigorous rehabilitation, the better and faster your recovery.
A team of rehabilitation clinicians who specialize in your diagnosis will work with you and your family to develop a care plan that meets your goals. This specialization leads to excellent patient outcomes and satisfaction.
Here’s what to expect:
• You’ll have daily physician visits and work with team of specialists for at least three hours a day, five days a week. The duration, frequency and intensity depend on your individual circumstances.
• Your personalized plan may include physical, occupational, speech-language and recreational therapies to help you achieve your highest level of independence.
• Loved ones are part of your team, so they’ll be encouraged to participate in your therapy.
Sub-acute rehabilitation is short-term inpatient rehabilitation. At Mary Free Bed, it’s customized, comprehensive and coordinated to help you recover quickly from an illness, injury or surgery. Our program’s multidisciplinary team coordinates a less intense level of rehabilitation, offering skilled nursing and rehabilitation to adults of all ages with many conditions.
Most sub-acute rehabilitation programs in Michigan are in nursing homes or retirement communities. You’ll find our program on the fifth floor of Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital in Grand Rapids in an environment designed to promote healing in a peaceful atmosphere.
You’ll receive at least one hour of daily therapy up to seven days a week with access to the same specialized services.
