Administrator Brantley Newton said he is excited for the public to see the new amenities the facility has to offer.
“Jacksonville Health and Rehab has always been committed to providing the best care available to our residents,” he said. “But in listening to our patients and families, it became apparent there is a great need in our industry for more distinction between long term care residents and short term rehab patients who just need a little therapy before they transition home from a stay in the hospital.”
Jacksonville Health and Rehab, located at 410 Wilson St., S. W., offers long term care for residents who can no longer live independently and also provides inpatient rehabilitation services for patients who need physical, occupational or speech therapy before returning home after a hospital stay.
“By separating our short term rehab wing and adding a new entrance specific to the unit, we feel more patients needing rehabilitation will be attracted to the services and amenities we offer,” said Newton. “Our industry is catering to a younger, healthier demographic every year, and we are just excited to be able to bring such a needed resource to the Jacksonville community.”
