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.

Parking Information

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.

Smoking Policy

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.


In support of your right to privacy, please designate one person to communicate with your case manager and convey information to the other members of your family.

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.


Visitors are welcome daily from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Your family members are welcome to attend your therapy sessions between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Other visitors can spend time with you between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. or after 4 p.m. As a courtesy to others, please limit the number of visitors in your room to two. Please note, visitors under the age of 12 must be supervised by an adult at all times.


Where Can My Friends and Family Send Correspondence for Me?

In order to ensure accuracy of delivery of all floral and cards, items should be addressed in the following manner:


Patient Name
c/o Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital
26W171 Roosevelt Road
Wheaton, IL 60187


Each patient room has a direct phone number which will be given to the patient upon admission into the hospital. Please inform the admission representative if you would prefer not to accept visitors or phone calls.

After Discharge

Marianjoy provides patients a full continuum of care through our network of inpatient, subacute, and outpatient facilities along with physician clinics throughout the greater Chicagoland area. Through the Marianjoy network, patients receive a continuity of care that helps them progress from rehabilitation and recovery to achieving their goals
and creating a lifestyle of their choosing.

Following discharge from inpatient rehabilitation therapy, patients can continue to receive their rehabilitation medical care through the Marianjoy Medical Group, and our comprehensive outpatient program enables patients to receive a coordinated treatment program several times a week in order to enhance functional abilities.
