About Us

About Us:

Our 20 bed Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit is conveniently located on McLaren Bay Region’s West Campus. Our interdisciplinary team is dedicated to promoting self-sufficiency and maximizing functional ability using patient-centered care. Patient-centered care is an approach in which persons served (patients) are viewed as whole persons. It involves advocating for the person’s rights, empowering the patient to make decisions and respecting the person’s autonomy, voice, self-determination and participation in decision-making. Persons served are actively involved in managing their rehabilitation and healthcare needs in partnership with the rehab team.

Core Values of Person-Centered Care:
RESPECT the person served
INFORMATION is gathered from the person served and used to establish the plan of care.
COLLABORATION with the person served

The Unit is accredited by *CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) for three years as a Comprehensive Inpatient Rehabilitation Program for Adults, and as a Stroke Specialty Program (Adults). Our Inpatient Rehab Unit is proud that we have had this accreditation for over 27 years.

*CARF accreditation represents the highest level that can be awarded to an organization and shows the organization's substantial conformance to the standards established by CARF. An organization receiving a three accreditation outcome has undergone a rigorous peer review process and has demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality, and are measurable and accountable. CARF Accreditation is an indication of our organization’s dedication and commitment to improving the quality of the lives of the persons served. Services, personnel, and documentation clearly indicate an established pattern of practice excellence.

    1. What is the difference between Inpatient Rehab Unit and a Skilled Nursing Facility?
    • At Inpatient Rehab, there is an interdisciplinary team dedicated to promoting self- sufficiency and maximizing functional ability using a patient-centered approach. Typically, therapy at a Skilled Nursing Facility is given at a slower pace, less hours per day and performed more in a group setting, with the patients staying longer. In an Inpatient Rehab Unit, therapy will be given in a more intense pace, at least 3 hours a therapy per day and performed more on an individual basis, which allows the patient’s stay to be much shorter.
    1. How long does a person stay at the Inpatient Rehab Unit?
    • The Length of Stay is determined on an individualized basis. Each person is unique and has different needs. These differences are used to determine the appropriate Length of Stay for each patient, usually on a week-to-week basis.
    1. What is Person-Centered Care?
    • Our interdisciplinary team is dedicated to promoting self-sufficiency and maximizing functional ability using patient-centered care. Patient-centered care is an approach in which persons served (patients) are viewed as whole persons. It involves advocating for the person’s rights, empowering the patient to make decisions and respecting the person’s autonomy, voice, self-determination and participation in decision-making.
