Mission, Vision & Values
Our mission is to help you gain greater independence. We encourage family and caregiver involvement throughout your stay. In addition to dynamic therapies, the acute rehabilitation program and acute stroke rehabilitation program include caregiver training and education as a bridge to helping you return to your community.
Personal items can make your stay at Saint Francis more comfortable. We recommend you bring several (three to four) changes of comfortable, loose-fitting, wash-and-wear clothing that is easy to put on and remove.
You may consider bringing items such as family photos, your favorite pillow, and your laptop to make your stay more pleasant. For your convenience, we provide free Wi-Fi.
A registered nurse will greet you and help you get settled in your room. He or she will complete a detailed admission assessment, followed by physician and therapist evaluations. The assessment and evaluations will help you set goals for your stay.
You will be assigned to a dedicated team that may consist of a rehabilitation physician, a rehabilitation nurse, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, a discharge planner, a neuropsychologist, and a dietician. In addition to your rehabilitation team, Saint Francis Memorial Hospital is staffed with outstanding specialists and hospitalists to provide additional medical services as needed.
Each morning your team meets to review your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your rehabilitation program. Each week your case is reviewed in depth to ensure the rehabilitation goals you helped create are on target.
Your Therapy Schedule
Each morning you will receive a schedule that indicates that day’s therapy appointments. A typical schedule involves a minimum of 180 minutes (3 hours) of therapy a day, or roughly 15 hours per week. Sessions generally last between 30 to 45 minutes and are offered from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Visitors are welcome between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. We offer validated valet and validated garage parking for patient's family members and caregivers.
Your discharge planner will coordinate with home health agencies, outpatient services, and medical supply companies to ensure you have any needed support when you are ready to leave Saint Francis Memorial Acute Rehabilitation Center.
