Rehabilitation Encourages Healing
The short-term rehabilitation program at Lila Doyle specializes in treating the unique needs of people who are in transition between the hospital and home. People who have experienced significant changes in their lives, such as strokes, neurologic disorders, joint replacements and fractures are among those who benefit from Lila Doyle’s rehabilitation services.
Our rehabilitation center is also a place for those who have experienced exacerbations of a chronic illness, such as respiratory disorders or arthritis, and those who become debilitated because of a long hospitalization.
Lila Doyle’s short-term rehabilitation program uses a comprehensive, interdisciplinary team approach that places the patient at the center of the treatment plan. We invite and appreciate family involvement throughout the patient’s stay at Lila Doyle. Our goal is to help our patients achieve their highest possible level of physical, social and emotional independence.
The goal of our physical, occupational and speech therapists is to return patients to their homes where they can function as independently as possible. We work closely with family members, physicians and home health to ensure a smooth transition after discharge.
