University Hospitals and Kindred Hospital Rehabilitation Services celebrated the completion of their latest collaborative venture, the University Hospitals Rehabilitation Hospital in Avon on Tuesday, January 26 with a public open house.
The two-story, 58,000-square-foot inpatient facility is located in Avon at 37900 Chester Road. The hospital features 50 private rooms and specialty centers dedicated to neurological and stroke recovery that includes trauma, brain injury, spinal cord injury as well as amputation, orthopaedic and bariatric patients.
Physical, occupational and speech therapy treatment spaces are also part of the facility with state-of-the-art equipment and technologies that include iPad with speech applications, prosthetic and orthotic programs. Additionally, motorized lifts and outdoor patios that include healing gardens and training areas with putting greens and basketball courts are featured areas at the facility.
The transition to community (TTC) areas at the hospital prepare patients and families for a safe community re-entry and the homelike environments are equipped with a kitchen, bath and laundry areas to help patients adjust to daily life with the goal to increase safety while reducing anxiety and risk for re-injury.
The neurological recovery center has been designed for patients recovering from mild to severe brain injuries. The secured unit includes a dedicated therapeutic gym, dining room and lounge to facilitate one-on-one recovery.
Kindred and University Hospitals also operate the 50-bed University Hospitals Rehabilitation Hospital in Beachwood, on the east side of the city, which opened in 2012. Kindred Hospital Rehabilitation Services is part of Kindred Healthcare, which in the Cleveland market operates two transitional care hospitals, two assisted living facilities, three nursing centers, a co-located hospital-based sub-acute unit, and home health and non-medical home care services.
