Marianjoy Benefits the Community
Specializing in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation
Founded in 1972, Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital & Clinics, Inc. is a non-profit specialty hospital established by the Franciscan Sisters, Daughters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Mary of Wheaton, Illinois.
Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital & Clinics are part of Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare system, a religiously sponsored healthcare system. In keeping with the mission of this system, Marianjoy is committed to living out the healing ministry of Jesus by providing exceptional, compassionate and cost effective rehabilitation medicine healthcare and related services that promote the dignity and well-being of the people Marianjoy serves in its community.
Marianjoy is the only inpatient rehabilitation hospital in the far western suburbs of Chicago, and therefore represents only one of three free-standing acute medical rehabilitation hospitals in the Chicago area.
In addition to its inpatient hospital services in Wheaton, Marianjoy also offers rehabilitation services in six counties surrounding DuPage including Cook, Kane, DeKalb, McHenry, Will, and Lake. Marianjoy provides outpatient programs in Wheaton, Oakbrook Terrace, Downers Grove, Oak Park, Aurora, and Palos Heights. Marianjoy also offers medical and rehabilitation management oversight at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, Adventist Hinsdale Hospital, and Rush Oak Park Hospital. It provides subacute care and rehabilitation programs in Wheaton, Downers Grove, and Palos Heights. Marianjoy Medical Group physicians provide service to patients in more than 30 acute, subacute, and outpatient locations across the greater Chicagoland area.
Serving Children and Adults
Marianjoy uses a multi-disciplinary based approach for the treatment of acute and chronic conditions including stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputation, neuromuscular disorders, and musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions including joint replacement. Patients are referred to Marianjoy by their physician for rehabilitation services typically following a patient’s acute-care hospital stay in order to improve functional independence.
Marianjoy treats both children and adults with comprehensive levels of care including inpatient, subacute, outpatient, day rehabilitation, and physician clinics. Annually, Marianjoy treats approximately 2,400 patients at its Wheaton inpatient program and managed an additional 48,837 outpatient visits in FY 2011.
Marianjoy’s comprehensive rehabilitation programs and services include the following:
In addition to physical medicine and rehabilitation care, Marianjoy is a community resource and benefits individuals with disabilities and the population at large. Through a wide variety of programs encompassed by Marianjoy, the physicians and clinical staff provide their highly specialized expertise to improve the health of people with disabilities and reduce health disparities.
An estimated 20 percent of the U.S. population is limited by a self-reported disability. Furthermore, individuals with disabilities are at a significantly higher risk of unemployment. Given these facts, Marianjoy benefits the community by addressing the healthcare and related needs of the primary populations it serves, with a special focus on serving those populations with the highest risk of disability, including but not limited to the poor, high-risk children, and older adults.
