JFK Johnson’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities
For inpatients, we have 94 inpatient beds in a separately licensed hospital that is attached to JFK Medical Center.
Inpatient rehabilitation is for patients who require intensive, interdisciplinary rehabilitation services. Such inpatient programs are designed to improve function and promote each patient’s highest degree of independence.
Inpatient rehabilitation care is also known as hospital-level, or acute, rehabilitation care. This sophisticated level of care is not available in other settings, such as nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living centers or extended care centers.
Admission to Inpatient Care
Most people are admitted to JFK Johnson inpatient care from an acute-care hospital. If you wish to be considered for admission, notify the discharge planner from the acute-care hospital, who will contact us.
JRI offers 94 inpatient beds in a separately licensed hospital that is attached to the Anthony M. Yelencsics Community Hospital. Together, they comprise JFK Medical Center, a private, not-for-profit community hospital.
Other services available to all on-site inpatient rehabilitation patients include:
- Medical Consultations
- Diagnostic and Radiology services
- Laboratory Services
- Pharmacy Services
Scope of Services: Inpatient Rehabilitation
The Inpatient Rehabilitation program has two units located on 1East and 3 East. Adult patients with the following rehabilitation diagnoses are admitted to these units for treatment: stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputations, orthopedic conditions, cardiac conditions, and other general medical/surgical conditions. Specifically for spinal cord patients, we accept patients with injuries below the level of C5, and the injury can be complete, or incomplete. In general, we do not accept patients who are on a ventilator, are in a coma, or are undergoing active chemotherapy.
Inpatient services are provided 365 days a year, 24 hours a day by rehabilitation nursing, and the availability of physicians specializing in rehabilitation medicine. Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Physical therapy are provided 365 days a year, from 8 am -4:30 pm. These services are provided 5 days out of every 7, based on individual patient weeks. Social work and recreation therapy, as well as rehabilitation psychology, are provided 5-6 days a week, as needed, during the hours of 8 am-6 pm.
Patients in this program are referred from hospital and physician providers throughout the following areas: HMH network; local, regional, statewide, national, and international facilities. Payers include both government sponsored (Medicare, Medicaid), as well as third party payers, including commercial insurances, workers’ compensation, motor vehicle insurance, and private/self pay. All insurances are verified for coverage prior to the initiation of services. Fees for services can be obtained through the Client Services department.
All services are provided directly at the HMH Johnson Rehabilitation Institute.
