Medicine

Rebekah Rehab is proud to offer a compassionate and experienced team of physicians to provide medical care for our patients. We have created a model for rehabilitation, sub acute, post hospital and long term geriatric care that ensures ready access to a variety of physicians specially trained for the unique needs of our population.

Our primary physicians have been selected because they have demonstrated interest and expertise in caring for persons with sub acute, post hospital, rehabilitation, and long term care needs. On average our doctors have over 15 years of clinical experience providing care in settings such as ours. Our physicians are board certified or board eligible and many have completed fellowship programs in geriatrics or other relevant medical specialties. They work closely with our specialists in the community or the hospital setting. Our physicians visit Rebekah Rehab on a regular schedule during the week; this maximizes interaction with staff, family members, and most importantly our patients. Rebekah Rehab physicians are available to meet with families in order to review medical care and progress. Each doctor is on call on call 24 hours a day and works under the supervision of a medical director with over 20 years of experience in this care setting. Additionally, we work closely with dedicated physicians at acute care hospitals to ensure continuity of care and prompt return to our facility for continued care.

At Rebekah Rehab we strive to deliver the highest standard of care for those we are privileged to serve. We understand the importance of providing compassionate and comprehensive medical care – rendered as much as possible on-site at our facility to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations.

The medical department at Rebekah Rehab is proud to offer specialty services designed around the unique needs of the people we care for. We have designed a comprehensive wound care program which includes a multidisciplinary care team lead by a wound specialist physician. Weekly rounds are made in order to monitor progress in healing, evaluate areas at risk for skin breakdown and to start preventative measures when needed. We make use of advanced wound management techniques including negative pressure vacuum assisted closure technology and pay close attention to management of important related issues such as pain and nutrition.

Our physicians participate in a multidisciplinary approach to falls preventions and evaluation. We evaluate every individual who falls in a comprehensive manner with a specially trained team including our physicians, nursing, physical and occupational therapists and other health care team members with specific expertise.

Rebekah Rehab physicians also take part in other important patient care activities including pain management, rehab and post hospital care planning, advance directive planning and implementation, discharge planning and when appropriate, end of life care.
