Holy Family Hospital is home to a 65-bed inpatient rehabilitation unit, as well as treating thousands of outpatients each year.
The 65-bed Holy Family Inpatient Rehabilitation unit caters primarily to older adults, generally 55 and older, who have had strokes, joint replacements, fractures or amputations and require further therapy to allow them to return to their homes following an acute care stay. By participating in a daily active rehabilitation program provided by a highly skilled interdisciplinary team these patients are able to become stronger, retrain and learn new skills to allow them to safely return to their homes.
Two key features of HFH are a hydrotherapy pool and Easy Street™— a simulated community that allows patients to practice essential life skills in a safe, challenging and realistic environment. This community includes an Activities of Daily Living Suite, which is used for patients preparing to return home.
