Experience the Difference of Patient-Centered Care
Old Mill Rehabilitation provides post-acute care in a distinct environment. Today’s healthcare consumer demands a better approach that the current long-term care system can offer. Often those qualified for a Medicare short-stay choose to return to home prematurely, due to the undesirable alternative offered by the long-term care system.
Transitional care is an optimal setting for patients that require a regimen of skilled therapy or nursing care following an acute hospital stay. Our highly qualified therapists and nurses are skilled and experienced in working with adults of all ages who have a variety of orthopaedic, cardiac, and neurological conditions. Common conditions treated may include stroke, brain aneurysm, total and partial joint replacement, surgical patients with ORIF following fracture and/or fall, spinal fusion, spinal decompression, laminectomy, vertebroplasty, heart attack, coronary bypass, pacemaker placement, congestive heart failure, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
