Since 2000, St. David's Georgetown Rehabilitation Unit, a St. David's Medical Center Facility, has provided inpatient rehabilitation programs to patients recovering from a broad range of injuries and illnesses. Georgetown's In-Patient Rehabilitation unit has established a reputation as an excellent rehabilitation facility and is seen as a resource in the community that provides excellent customer service and high quality care. Our 16-bed rehab unit is located on the 3rd floor of the St. David's Georgetown Hospital which is conveniently located just a short distance from the intersection of IH-35 and Leander Road in Georgetown, Texas. Family involvement is an integral part to the recovery of our rehab patients and our location makes for easy access without having to deal with heavy traffic. Patients receive quality care from our highly-skilled interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, therapists and case managers. Our goal is to help people increase their independence, improve safety at home and work, and enhance the quality of their lives.
Rehabilitation Services at St. David's Georgetown Hospital assists patients in achieving maximum functional outcomes through a comprehensive plan of therapeutic intervention utilizing the following:
- A medical director who is a board certified physiatrist, a physician specializing in rehabilitation medicine
- 16-bed inpatient unit
- A full range of therapeutic services including rehabilitation nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy,psychology consultation, social services, dietetic consultation, case management and discharge planning
- Treatment of patients with stroke, spinal cord injury, major multiple trauma, brain injury, neurological disorders (multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, Parkinson's disease), orthopedic impairments (joint fractures, trauma and amputations).
The inpatient rehabilitation treatment program is individualized to meet patients' personal needs. Patients' family and friends are welcome to visit. Immediate family members may visit at any time as long as the visits do not interfere with therapy sessions, rest or meals. Family members, especially those who will be providing care and assistance, are encouraged to participate in rehab training sessions. A patient's therapist and nursing staff will schedule time to work individually with a family member who will assist after discharge. Small children may visit while in the direct supervision of an adult, as long as they are not disruptive to other patients or treatment.
The physical therapists on staff provide an array of clinical skills for patients.
The McKenzie technique is utilized by our McKenzie certified therapist. This technique educates patients so they can treat their own symptoms to centralize and abolish their pain symptoms.
The Myokinesthetic program includes resetting the patient's peripheral nervous system along a certain nerve pathway to allow for a change in the central nervous system and posture. This promotes more normal movement, muscle fiber recruitment, increased ROM and decreased pain.
Our physical therapy team also treats patients with vestibular, neurological, orthopedic pediatric and other orthopedic diagnoses. Overall, these therapy techniques are designed to decrease treatment durations and reduce rates of recurrence through proper education and prevention.
Occupational Therapy provides comprehensive evaluation and treatment protocols for patients who have difficulty with daily living activities. Hand therapy is provided for traumatic injuries as well as surgical interventions, repetitive use injuries, orthopedic, and other neurological diagnoses. Additionally, we treat pediatric patients with sensory integration dysfunctions and developmental delays (Down's syndrome, Autism and Torticollis). Educating patient and their families is integral to achieving maximal independence. This includes quality of life, function, health, well being and occupational performance.
