Easing the Transition from Hospital to Home

Augustana Mercy’s short-term rehabilitation offers the services of Mercy Hospital’s therapy department to help speed recovery and focus on restoring patients’ strength and abilities. 

The treatment we provide is as varied as the people we see. Some come to us after surgeries and neurological traumas, while others are dealing with respiratory conditions or other illnesses.
Short term rooms are private, offering flat-screen televisions, phones and larger restrooms. Computers, wi-fi, coffee and a visitors’ lounge are also available.  Here, you’ll find a range of treatment options that include occupational, physical and speech therapy.  We work closely with attending physicians from the local Gateway clinic and Mercy Hospital Home Care to ease the transition from hospital to home.
