Short-Term Rehabilitation.jpg


You’ve got a life to live…we will get you back there.

The choice of where you’re going to recuperate following your hospitalization is as important as your choice of physician and hospital. Planning for a short-term rehabilitation stay is easy as Lewis County General Hospital’s Residential Health Care Facility accepts advance reservations for planned surgeries and procedures. This provides you and your family with the peace of mind of knowing that you have priority status for admission to our program when you are discharged from the hospital.

Our rehabilitation staff will evaluate all patients upon admission and establish a treatment program tailored to meet individual needs. Focus of treatment will be on functional mobility, self care skills and patient and family education. Our team will work with patients and family to establish the safest, most functional level of discharge possible. In addition we provide patients and their families with ongoing support and resources to assure that return to the community is as successful as possible.

Referrals to our short-term rehab program are accepted from physicians, hospital discharge planners, family, patients and home health agencies. For information about admissions, please contact (315) 376-5608, or for additional information regarding the rehab program contact Jennifer Vogt, Rehabilitation Director at (315) 376-5438.
