Why Patients Choose the North Shore-LIJ
The North Shore-LIJ Rehabilitation Network strives to provide comprehensive, results-oriented rehabilitation services. The aim is to not only relieve pain for patients, but also to help them get back to their normal routines after a surgery, injury, sickness or accident. Whether that person is you or a loved one, rehabilitation programs at North Shore-LIJ are meant to ensure a healthy, complication-free and speedy recovery.
Convenience is critical for patients working through a dedicated recovery program, and as such we offer rehabilitation locations throughout Long Island, Queens and Staten Island that are simple to access and staffed by licensed, experienced therapists. Many of our network members have received special recognition for their rehabilitation services, including Southside Hospital, which was recently ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top hospitals for rehabilitation. Southside also has the only state-designated, hospital-based adult brain injury rehabilitation center on Long Island. Staten Island University Hospital holds the same distinction on Staten Island.
Some of the reasons patients choose North Shore-LIJ for their medical needs are:
- Choices That Fit Individual Rehabilitation Needs
Rehabilitation services through North Shore-LIJ are not one-size-fits-all. They can be provided in many different settings and locations to meet the needs of the patient. Options include hospital-based and inpatient rehab, short-term programs, home care and outpatient rehab.
- Support for Post-Recovery
Rehabilitation programs are geared toward preparing patients for life after discharge. Often this involves creating a custom re-entry plan, based on the patient's abilities and needs. This may include support in modifying the home for a disability or impairment, job and vocational training and brokering connections with local community agencies.
- Multidisciplinary Recovery Support Team
There is no typical recovery team at North Shore-LIJ. The Rehabilitation Network tailors programs specifically for each patient, but it always takes a multidisciplinary approach. Specialists at North Shore-LIJ who are enlisted to aid in recovery include physiatrists, clinical social workers, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech/language pathologists, behavioral health specialists including psychiatrists and psychologists, recreation therapists, audiologists, dieticians, chaplains and others.
