Your Marianjoy Care Team

Our goal here at Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital is to help you and your family return to the lifestyle you enjoyed before your illness or injury. To meet this goal, we provide you with a dedicated team of experienced professionals to assist you every step of the way.

Upon your admission to Marianjoy, your team will meet with you to evaluate and learn more about you. You and your family are important members of this team.

Your team will include:

Physiatrists (physicians specializing in rehabilitation medicine) provide patient care and leadership to the treatment team.

Rehabilitation nurses monitor the patient’s health status, reinforce the skills patients learn in therapy and provide patient education.

Physical therapists help patients improve balance, coordination, strength, flexibility and mobility.

Occupational therapists help patients perform activities of daily living, gain strength, skills and confidence.

Speech pathologists help patients improve swallowing function, communication skills, comprehension, expression, reading, writing, memory, and problem-solving in the treatment of swallowing, eating, and voice disorders.

Psychologists work with patients and their families to manage behavioral, emotional, and cognitive changes that affect self-confidence and relationships following a stroke.

Pharmacists monitor the patient’s drug therapy and drug distribution, provides patient education and clinical pharmacy services including but not limited to anticoagulation and antibiotics monitoring.

Case managers work with the patient and family to develop a discharge plan, identify community resources, and assist with insurance companies to ensure optimal benefit coverage.

Depending on your circumstances, your team may include a psychologist, dietician, therapeutic recreation specialist, or a chaplain.

Everyone at Marianjoy understands that this is a time of change and challenge for you and your family. Our individualized, holistic treatment approach – The Circle of Care – is developed to help you achieve your goals by addressing and caring for your body, mind and spirit. The members of your care team work together and meet regularly to ensure your plan maximizes your functional skills, independence and mobility. Your care team is here to provide more than rehabilitation care; the team members, together with you and your family, work hard to restore hope and rebuild lifestyles.

Attending and consulting physicians are not employed by Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital, but are independent physicians with privileges to provide services to patients at our facilities.  The attending physicians are employees of Marianjoy Medical Group, a separate corporation from the hospital.
