Rehabilitation Care

Fostering Well-Being at Fayette County Memorial Hospital

Why choose our Rehabilitation Care program for your post-acute care?

Our Rehabilitation Care program is designed for patients who need additional skilled services and time to heal following a hospitalization before they can safely return home.

Patients in need of physical, speech, occupational and respiratory therapies, IV therapy, wound care and pain management can benefit from the program.

Our team is dedicated to providing quality care in a friendly and supportive environment. We strive to provide the highest level of functional independent living for each resident while helping them return home as quickly as possible.

Benefits to our Rehabilitation Care program vs. a nursing home:

  • Improved continuity of care
  • Exceptional individualized therapy services
  • Security of recovering in a hospital setting
  • Less disruption in the healing process
  • Emphasis is on recovery to return to home
