Short-Term Rehabilitation

Short-term Rehabilitation: Long-term Success

Our short-term rehabilitation supports those needing a little extra care after a hospital stay for surgery, illness, or injury. Good Samaritan Home helps individuals regain the life skills required for daily living, in our state of the art facility. With First Choice Physical Therapy, we hope to help you restore function and safely return home, or get the highest level of independence possible.

We offer 28 Medicare certified beds in Eber Gardens and McReynolds Center neighborhoods. We provide highly skilled levels of nursing and rehabilitation services following at least a three-night inpatient hospital stay. If you have a Medicare Advantage Replacement Plan, preauthorization is required from your insurance company. Any days in the hospital under observation status do not count towards Medicare’s requirements. There is a waiver program available to the hospital requirement. Ask our admissions office or your provider for more details.

Some of the services Good Samaritan Home Staff can provide daily physical, occupational, or speech therapy needed after major surgery;  IV services; daily treated wound care or wound packing; a new feeding tube; a new colostomy; a new nephrostomy; and ileostomy services. Our staff will work with residents and their families to develop a plan of care that will best suit individual needs.

Length of stay varies with each patient. It can be anywhere from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, determined based on Medicare criteria.

Residents in the short-term rehab can participate in any daily activities or outings. They can also take advantage of all amenities and services Good Sam offers. Rates include luxurious private rooms and bathrooms with three meals daily, activities, light housekeeping, phone, cable, and internet.
