West Suburban Medical Center Develops Illinois’ First Sub-Acute Rehabilitation COVID-19 Unit
With the rapid uptick of COVID-19 positive cases across the nation, and no standard of care for safely providing therapy for COVID-positive patients, West Suburban Medical Center Rehabilitation leaders developed a new Sub-Acute Rehabilitation (SAR) COVID unit to meet the needs of our community and prepare for future surges.
Key to the establishment of the new unit was developing a protocol for accepting and treating COVID patients. With an innovative new protocol in place, the team converted a portion of the hospital’s SAR unit into a COVID unit, where patients receive the critical occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech language pathology services they need to successfully recover.
