Rehabilitation Hospital of Fort Wayne Receives Excellence Through Insight Award
(August 2, 2013) – Rehabilitation Hospital of Fort Wayne has been recognized by HealthStream with an Excellence through Insight award for overall patient satisfaction in its inpatient unit during 2012. This is the third time in four years Rehabilitation Hospital has achieved this distinction.
Hospitals receive specific recognition because of a commitment to excellence in patient care. Fewer than 90 facilities across the nation out of more than 1,000 reviewed by HealthStream were recognized for their ability to excel in gaining insight into their patients, employees, physicians and the community through research, and for using that information to build excellence within their organizations.
As the region’s only free-standing hospital dedicated solely to rehabilitation, the 36-bed Rehabilitation Hospital of Fort Wayne has helped patients regain independence after serious illness or injury since 1993. Rehabilitation Hospital, a Lutheran Health Network member, cares for patients 14 and older who have a variety of diagnoses and conditions. It offers a barrier-free interior and exterior, a spacious therapy gym, a warm-water therapeutic pool, an outdoor mobility courtyard, activities of daily living areas and a transitional living apartment. Rehabilitation Hospital recently earned its fourth consecutive three-year accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities for its inpatient rehabilitation program. Services included in the CARF accreditation include care provided to adults and adolescents and stroke specialty. The facility is the first inpatient rehab provider in northeastern Indiana to obtain CARF accreditation in stroke specialty.
HealthStream is a national provider of research and learning solutions for the healthcare industry that recognizes the transformation of insight into action to deliver outcome-based results.
