Acute Rehab at the Comprehensive Rehabilitation Center (CRC)
The Comprehensive Rehabilitation Center (CRC) is dedicated to making sure that our patients are ready to return to their daily lives when they are discharged, and we have some of the best outcomes in the nation.
The Inpatient Rehabilitation program offers the treatment necessary to return patients to recover from conditions such as:
Our Exceptional Outcomes
We focus on providing excellent outcomes. Our hospital readmission rate is well below the national average, and that’s because we have a top-of-the-line rehabilitation program dedicated to making sure that our patients are ready to return to their daily lives when they are discharged.
Out of 123 eligible Kindred Rehabilitation Centers, the CRC was rated:
- #2 in Highest Patient Progress Per Day
- #2 in Lowest Length of Patient Stay
- #5 in the Nation for Overall Rehabilitative Care
The CRC operates on the 4th Floor of Pascagoula Hospital. The floor has an activities room, Chapel, a large gym, and a dining room. Each patient receives a private room equipped with cable tv and wifi.
24-Hour Nursing Care
Our nurses provide 24-hour monitoring of our patients as they recover from surgery, injury, or illness. We monitor the amount of food that they eat as well as carefully watch for deydration.
Occupational, Physical, and Speech Therapy
Patients receive three hours of therapy per day. We offer occupational, physical, and speech therapy as well as condition-specific therapies.
VitalStim® Dysphagia Therapy
For patients who have trouble swallowing (dysphagia), the CRC is Certified in a therapy called VitalStim®. During this therapy, specially designed electrodes are attached to a patient’s neck. A small current stimulates the muscles in the neck that are needed for swallowing to contract. Repeated therapy helps retrain these muscles to complete the swallowing process.
Life at the CRC
The caregivers working at the CRC work hard to create a positive, supportive atmosphere. We try to have as much fun as we can. CRC caregivers and patients enjoy annual events and holidays at Pascagoula Hospital.
RehabTracker Mobile App
CRC is now offering the RehabTracker mobile app for our patients. With this app, family members, friends, doctors, nurses, and other members of the patient’s care team are able to access the patient’s progress in real time and send communications.
