Acute Rehabilitation Center
Opened in December, 2001, just a few months after St. Catherine Hospital became part of Community Healthcare System, the new Rehabilitation Center features state-of-the-art equipment and services to help patients gain independence after illnesses or injuries.
The patient towers at St. Catherine that were closed for about 12 years have been renovated to become the new 11,815-square-foot Rehabilitation Center, offering care for those recovering from brain injury, stroke, neurological or orthopedic conditions, amputation, polyarthritis, multiple trauma or congenital deformity disorders.
Patients who are learning to gain independence for living will have access to all the activities of daily living, including an apartment-like setting with a washer and dryer, training kitchen, restroom and living area. The center also offers 1,000 square feet of activity and dining space, a fully-equipped gym for therapy and exercise, conference space for family and caregivers, and offices. Patients who previously would have had to leave their own communities for this type of care now have access to it closer to home.
