Last year over 90% of our admissions were for short-term rehab. Short-term rehab participants reside in a separate and distinct neighborhood. The full-time licensed rehabilitation staff provides expert medical and nursing care to help you on the road to recovery. You should know that Witherell has a staff turnover rate 6 times lower than the State nursing home average. Our goal is to have consistent staff assignments while you're here. If prescribed, orthopedic rehab sessions are available twice a day Monday - Friday and once a day on weekends and most holidays.
All of the amenities at Witherell are available to short-term rehab residents. Our primary purpose is to get you back to an active life.
