Inspired Care from Great River Health System
Great River Health System Center's Inpatient Rehabilitation Program
is unlike any other treatment area in the hospital or the region that
includes southeast Iowa, west-central Illinois and northeast Missouri.
Overseen by Medical Director Anil Dhuna, MD, it's a unique place where
patients and treatment teams work together to set, reach and celebrate
goals for restoring function and learning new skills.
The medical center's adult, child and adolescent rehabilitation, and
stroke rehabilitation programs are accredited by CARF. The medical center
also was one of the first six hospitals in Iowa to be named a certified
Primary Stroke Center, receiving The Joint Commission's Gold Seal
of Approval for stroke-care programs.
Each day, patients dress and spend several hours working with therapists
in Snake Alley Rehabilitation, a large area that includes an automobile,
mock grocery store, kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. The area
helps patients practice the activities of daily living. It also includes
steps, doors and a variety of walking surfaces. The experiences extend
to the outdoor courtyard, which has more walking surfaces and a garden
with plants to stimulate the senses of smell, touch and sight.
Rest times and evenings are spent in the adjoining 11-bed Rehabilitation
Unit. All private and semi-private rooms overlook beautiful gardens.
The highly qualified rehabilitation team develops programs to help patients
regain abilities that have been lost or diminished because of:
- Accidents with multiple injuries
- Brain injury
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson's disease
- Spinal-cord injuries
Outpatient services are provided in Wellness Plaza, which has one of the
state's premier outpatient rehabilitation and health fitness services.
Programs include aquatic therapy, athletic training for area schools,
back-injury prevention, outpatient cardiac rehabilitation, hand therapy,
health fitness, industrial rehabilitation, neurorehabilitation, occupational
and physical therapy, and speech language pathology.
