First rehab hospital in Kent County opens in Dover
The facility provides care for patientswith traumatic brain injury, stroke, Parkinson’s, amputations, hip fractures and orthopaedic injuries.
Dover Mayor Robin Christiansen and Lieutenant Governor Bethany Hall-Long were in attendance at the event as well as other elected officials, health care organizations and community partners.
“The higher level of hospital care provided in the acute rehabilitation setting cannot be found at other levels of care, such as nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities,” said Ted Werner, CEO of the hospital.
“We provide one-on-one individualized therapy five to seven days a week, daily medical visits by a physician and a nurse patient ratio that contributes to the highest quality of care.”
The hospital features 34 private rooms, inpatient and outpatient therapy gyms, robotic rehabilitation, neuromuscular reeducation, and gait training with state-of-the-art equipment.
