What Will My Stay Be Like?
What Is Marianjoy?
Marianjoy is a physical rehabilitation hospital in Wheaton, Illinois, which specializes in offering patients a rehabilitation program designed specifically for their individual needs. Marianjoy— located on a 60 acre wooded campus—features 120 private patient rooms, unique accessible gardens and labyrinth, meditation room, and many features designed to enhance our holistic approach to rehabilitation.
There is free parking available in our three-story parking garage. Visitors are strongly encouraged to utilize the parking structure and proceed to entrance #1 for admission into the hospital.
Marianjoy is a smoke-free campus. This policy is in effect for all patients, visitors, staff, and volunteers, and requires that all individuals refrain from smoking anywhere on the campus including outside the hospital, in the parking garage, in vehicles driving onto the campus, and on the walking paths surrounding the hospital.
The Admissions Process
Patient admissions are arranged by the discharge
facility, hospital, or Marianjoy clinic. A family
member or individual with Power of Attorney is
encouraged to be present to facilitate the admission
process. If you require a wheelchair, one will be
provided for you upon your arrival.
What Will My Days Be Like?
Every day at Marianjoy you will dress, have breakfast and begin your schedule of therapies. During your stay you will work with a rehabilitation team which includes a physiatrist (a physician who specializes in physical medicine and rehabilitation), nursing staff and therapists. You may have physical therapy, occupational therapy, and/or Speech/language therapy, and possibly other therapies based on your individualized rehabilitation program.
Who Can I Talk To If I Have Questions?
You can talk to any member of your care team any time you have a question about your stay at Marianjoy. The primary liaison between you and your family and the members of your care team is your case manager. If you or your family has any medical management questions that a team member cannot answer, please let your case manager know so she can arrange for your physician to speak with you.
When Are Visiting Hours?
Because you will be busy reaching the goals that you, your family, and your care team have set for you, you may find that you are not spending much time in your room, which is an important message to convey to visitors who may be expecting to find you there throughout the day. There will be time for rest and visiting, but your schedule may take you to the therapy gym, our activities for daily living (ADL) apartment, and depending on your condition, possibly even outside to enjoy the beautiful wooded campus and therapeutic gardens.
