Reston Hospital Center opened the doors to its newly expanded inpatient rehabilitation facility yesterday (Thursday).
The upgrade includes an increase of 12 rooms, a second private gym, upgraded dining areas, and additional rehabilitation equipment. According to Reston Hospital Center, the equipment allows the hospital to integrate 40 new therapies and onboard 30 staff members.
The facility now has 30 beds and provides services for individuals to transfer from the emergency room to inpatient hospital units.
“This Inpatient Rehab expansion is a significant step in Reston Hospital’s overall growth plan and in our sustained commitment to offer advanced, high-quality healthcare services to our patients,” Reston Hospital Center CEO John Deardorff said.
Here’s more from HCA Virginia Health System, the hospital’s parent company, on the changes:
Each patient receives an individualized rehabilitation plan specific to their needs. All therapy sessions occur one-on-one and each patient receives a minimum of three hours of therapy five days per week provided by a licensed physical, occupational, and/or speech therapist. An integrated therapy system has been added as a multidisciplinary tool that combines all three therapy disciplines (PT/OT/ST) to assist with improving cognition, vision, balance, and motor skills.
The Inpatient Rehabilitation Center also offers neurological rehabilitation, orthopedic rehabilitation, prosthetic training, and family training to ease reentry into the community.
“We focus on everyday activities with patients and help them navigate real-life situations. We will visit the gift shop or hospital cafe to practice money management, specifically for patients following stroke or brain injury, or visit the library with a patient who enjoys checking out books,” said Sarah Marshall, director of rehabilitation services.
Rehabilitation can also involve coordinating with the hospital’s pet therapy volunteers to allow patients to practice dog walking during sessions for functional dynamic balance and gait training. In the private gym, an aerial track system that can accommodate two patients working on simultaneous dynamic balance activities complements the existing gait and balance system.
The facility also includes booth seating in the dining room to provide areas for patients to train and educate if a patient were to dine at a restaurant.
“We have an extraordinary team of registered nurses, patient care technicians, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, case managers, and on-site physicians to enhance care for all patients,” Marshall said. “We are equipped to mimic a patient’s lifestyle and hobbies, including field trips to the grocery store, Reston Town Center, and restaurants as well as providing onsite therapy and training to the patient and family/caregivers for a confident transition back into the community.”
