Presence Villa Scalabrini Significantly Upgrades Short-Term Rehabilitation Center

Presence Villa Scalabrini Nursing and Rehabilitation Center C-Wing RoomTo better meet community needs, Presence Villa Scalabrini Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (Presence Villa Scalabrini) has enhanced the facility's short-term rehabilitation center.  

Key to the enhancement, Presence Villa Scalabrini converted an intermediate care wing into 15 short-stay suites with bathrooms, windows, desks, flat screen TVs and Wi-Fi.

"The rooms provide a retreat for patients undergoing intense personalized therapy while recovering from a hip or knee replacement, unplanned surgery or stroke," said Lesley Hieras, administrator of Presence Villa Scalabrini. "We look forward to welcoming patients to our upgraded facility and our faith-based approach to excellent care, shorter stays and better outcomes."

In 2014, Presence Villa Scalabrini unveiled 15 short-stay suites as part of a three-phase project to enhance its ability to provide short-term rehab. With the completion of this second phase, there are now a total of 30 private suites available for patient therapy.

At Presence Villa Scalabrini, personalized physical, occupational and speech/language therapy plans are completed with a large in-house staff of highly-trained therapists specializing in the use of state-of-the-art modality therapy equipment and targeted clinical programming.

It is part of Presence Life Connections, the continuum of care division of Presence Health, Illinois' largest Catholic health care system.
