rehab

North County Nursing and Rehabilitation offers comprehensive rehabilitation services for individuals who are in need of physical, occupational or speech therapy services due to a recent fall, stroke or hospitalization. Our guests will experience the superior clinical care combined with the amenities of our hospitality-based community. Our team of highly skilled and experienced therapists is dedicated to your individual success. They will assist you in achieving your specific goals, optimizing your highest functional levels and get you back to a healthy, fulfilling lifestyle.

Rapid Recovery Suites

Our Rapid Recovery Suites offer rehabilitation on a whole new level! Rapid Recovery Suites offers hospitality-based suites that are separate from the long-term care community. Our patients have their own private dining, spa and specialized therapies to aid in their comfort and recovery.

We understand that recovery is a very personal journey and our therapists and interdisciplinary team are here to help you through each step, mentally and physically. Our goal is to prepare you to return home as rapidly as clinically possible.

Each patient is assessed by his or her team and an individualized care pathway is put into place. This may be a short-term “Rapid Recovery,” or there may be a need that takes an extended amount of nursing and therapy services. We are here for whatever our patients need! Our goal is to increase your strength and abilities so that you can return home as quickly as possible.

In addition to superior clinical care, we offer beautiful new state-of-the-art surroundings to keep you as comfortable as possible. We also have an ADL therapy house that allows patients to practice all their learned skills in a true homelike environment before being discharged to home. This allows the therapists and the patient to identify any needs in the final days of your stay. Our therapists will also go to your home, if needed and allowed, to assess your home for any potential problem areas once you discharge. We do everything we can to get you to your highest level and to keep you there to avoid any issues after discharge and any hospital readmission.

There are several options for payment of services. We accept Medicare, many insurance plans and private pay. Our admissions staff would be happy to walk you through your payment options. Our Rapid Recovery Suites number is 918-371-2545 and our Admissions Hotline is 918-629-9562.
