(New Bern, NC) As of this month, CarolinaEast Rehabilitation Hospital (CRH) at CarolinaEast Medical Center has been providing quality medical rehabilitation services to the community for 25 years. CRH, then Coastal Rehabilitation Center, was established in August 1993 in response to a need in our community for quality sub-acute care in a local setting.
Located on the first floor of CarolinaEast Medical Center at 2000 Neuse Blvd., CRH is a 20-bed inpatient rehab hospital directed by an on-site certified physiatrist (medical doctor who specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation). The rehab team provides a full continuum of services including physical medicine, 24/7 nursing, social work, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, recreational therapy, psychology, wound care, and orthotics/prosthetics. The interdisciplinary team, patient and family work together to design and implement an individualized treatment plan to help each patient meet their goals. The patients receive three hours of therapy per day, five out of every seven days. The rehab facilities include a therapy gym, an “activities of daily living” apartment, a therapy garden, an ambulation course, and a patient dining/activity room. There is also an accessible van for community integration outings and home visits. Outpatient therapies are available for patients who need to continue therapy when hospitalization is no longer necessary. CRH gets you back to your life, on average, 10 days quicker than other rehabilitation facilities.
“When someone suffers from a debilitating stroke, an amputation, or undergoes hip replacement surgery after a fall, their journey through the recovery process can be challenging,” says Warren Phillips, Director of CarolinaEast Rehabilitation Hospital. “We are proud to have provided exceptional care to thousands of these individuals during the past 25 years and look forward to the privilege of serving many more in the years to come,” he added.
In addition to the physical rehabilitation, CRH facilitates several support groups including an Amputee Support Group, Aphasia Support Group and Ostomy Support Group among others.
