In-Patient Rehabilitation Unit at Lafayette General Medical Center
At Lafayette General, the Rehab Unit is self-contained on the 10th floor of the hospital, West Tower. One of the first 'new' units to open after renovation, the large, beautifully remodeled rooms have penthouse views from the top of the hospital.
The unit layout has more efficient space for the Rehab Unit staff—a central location promotes better communication among staff and patients, and provides an ease of movement for patients traveling between therapy sessions. Each patient occupies a private room with a full bathroom; and shares public areas, such as therapy rooms and the dining room, for activities. Placing our patients in the company of others with similar goals and challenges provides motivation and encouragement.
A Team Approach
Treatment in a full-service hospital gives our patients access to the very best in medical care. The patient and family members interact with a team of professionals from several medical disciplines—each of whom will conduct an independent exam and evaluation, coordinate care and provide the most appropriate plan for your individual needs.
Specialists on typical Rehab Team:
Social Worker/Case Manager
Neuro Psychologist (available for consults if needed)
