Post acute services
Northwell Health offers a range of after-hospital services to meet your individual needs. One or more of the following services may be the right choice for you. Speak to your physician or discharge planner about these and other options available to you.
Acute inpatient rehabilitation
Provided at Glen Cove, Phelps and Staten Island hospitals, acute rehabilitation is designed for individuals who need frequent physician monitoring, 24-hour nursing and intensive physical, occupational and/or speech therapy to maximize recovery. The length of stay is based on your diagnosis, needs and progress during rehabilitation. For more information, visit Northwell.edu/rehab.
Subacute inpatient rehabilitation
Subacute rehabilitation is for patients who need a less intense, less medically supervised rehabilitation environment. Services are provided at the Stern Center for Extended Care and Rehabilitation on the North Shore University Hospital campus in Manhasset, and the Orzac Center for Extended Care and Rehabilitation on the campus of Long Island Jewish Valley Stream.
Services include up to seven-day-a-week physical, occupational and speech pathology as clinically indicated, restorative nursing, wound care, social work and nutritional counseling. The subacute length of stay lasts until the patient is ready to return home or to a long-term setting. Subacute rehabilitation often is followed by home care or outpatient rehabilitation.
