Northwest Hospital Subacute Care

Northwest Hospital’s subacute rehab unit is a 24-bed long-term care facility designed for patients who no longer need acute rehab, but still require some specialized care. The unit focuses on patients who need a lengthier recovery from an orthopedic procedure or have conditions such as congestive heart failure or sickle cell disease. The unit was honored with a five-star ranking in U.S. News & World Report’s 2011 list of Best Nursing Homes.

Northwest Hospital Subacute CareOur treatment team includes the same types of professionals you would find in an acute care setting:

  • Occupational therapists
  • Physical therapists
  • Psychologists
  • Registered dietitians
  • Rehabilitation physicians
  • Rehabilitation nurses
  • Social workers
  • Speech-language pathologists
  • Therapeutic recreation staff

Because a stay in a subacute unit can mean a longer time away from the comforts of home, we offer our patients private rooms with bathrooms and showers and more comfortable, valuable time with families and guests. We understand that recovery goes deeper than becoming mobile or relearning how to hold a hairbrush; recovery is about healing the spirit as well.

Housed within Northwest Hospital, patients in the subacute unit have immediate access to a full range of medical services that include:

  • Diagnostic testing
  • CT scans
  • Magnetic resonance imaging
  • Other basic medical procedures

Northwest Hospital’s subacute unit also offers recreational therapies that help patients come together and boost their creativity and self-esteem. Our goal is to help patients regain mobility and independence and fully recover.
