ED WAIT TIME
Let us get you back in the swing of things
Ellenville Regional Hospital helps you regain your strength and independence after an inpatient event or surgical procedure. When you’re discharged from your acute inpatient or surgical stay, you may not be ready to go straight home. Ellenville Regional Hospital’s program is specially designed to give you the care and time you need to rebuild your strength and physical skills.
Skilled nursing care and rehabilitation
Healing from major surgery, like joint repair or replacement, an injury or an illness sometimes requires additional skilled nursing and rehabilitation to ensure that you have the best chance of returning home with maximum function. Whether you were treated at Ellenville Regional Hospital or another hospital, our Sub Acute Rehab / Swing Bed Program will get you feeling better, stronger, and ready to resume your life.
This varied and challenging program will assist you in meeting your individual, achievable goals. You’ll meet with our NYS Licensed Physical Therapists to evaluate your condition and help you set those goals.
