Complex Care at Retreat Doctors’ Hospital is a uniquely designed program for patients with catastrophic or multi-trauma injuries, particularly brain injuries. Our multi-disciplinary care team prepares patients with severe illnesses and injuries for a return home to their loved ones, or their next appropriate level of care.
The typical patient population of our Complex Care program includes:
- Brain Injury and Coma Recovery
- Pulmonary Disease Management
- Complex Wound Care
- Post-Surgical Complications
- Stroke and Orthopedic Care
- Peritoneal and Hemodialysis
- Catastrophic Illness or Multi-trauma Injuries
- Intravenous Therapy and Parenteral Nutrition
- Non-Weight Bearing Injuries
Partnering with patients and their families, we craft individualized care plans that help patients re-learn basic tasks and overcome larger challenges, with a long-term goal of restoring quality of life as much as possible.
Complex Care uses an interdisciplinary approach, stabilizing patients medically while providing physical, occupational and speech therapies at a level that is best suited to the patient's overall condition. As a result, patients have a less traumatic recovery and rehabilitation. We are located on the fifth floor of the hospital on a unit that features all private rooms.
Our multi-disciplinary treatment team members are led by board-certified Co-Medical Directors in Internal Medicine and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and Board-Certified Specialists in Pulmonology, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Neurology, and Infectious Diseases. Together they partner with skilled nurses, case managers, physical, occupational, and speech therapists, nutritionists, and case liaisons to achieve optimal clinical outcomes from your individual care plan. All team members participate in weekly team conferences, which are open to families and insurance case managers.
Many insurance companies see the value of our Complex Care Program. If you or a loved one needs our care, we provide onsite assessments at no cost to the patient. We also verify coverage and notify insurance providers of your care plan.
