Transitional Care Unit

Patients can test the strength and stamina of their newly regained skills. We have found it much safer for patients to discover problem areas before leaving us, rather than when they are home alone. Family members can also stay with the patient to test their readiness to provide help upon discharge.

Pre-Registration for Rehabilitation
We are pleased to offer pre-registration for our rehabilitation services. You plan for an elective surgery, so why not pre-plan your recovery afterwards?
