Hampton Court Nursing and Rehabilitation Center’s specialized Spine and Orthopedic Rehab Center is now fully operational. Dedicated to the care of post-surgical patients recovering from hip and knee replacements and intricate spinal surgery procedures, the 30-bed unit is staffed by highly qualified therapists and nurses.
“We’re excited to expand our range of services to help patients regain the highest level of functioning,” said Laynie Stern, Hampton Court CEO and clinical director. “This expansion represents a new direction in sub-acute care, while we still maintain our commitment and dedication to long-term residents and their families.”
With a professional staff of physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapists, Hampton Court provides patients with therapy and treatment tailored to their needs and paced to their endurance levels.
Raquel Franklin, OTR-L, Hampton Court’s director of rehab, is proud of the center’s individualized approach. “Patients feel confident that they are receiving therapeutic care in a facility where we treat them as family,” she said. “It’s very rewarding to see the transformation in patients who may have suffered for years but leave the facility with minimal discomfort and are able to enjoy an enhanced quality of life.”
According to director Laynie Stern, RN, MSN, the goal of Hampton Court Rehab Center is to create a seamless transition from hospital to facility and back to home and community. Patients have told their surgeons that recovery at Hampton Court was a very positive experience with individualized attention in a warm and caring atmosphere where all their needs were met. The facility’s pristine cleanliness and the quality of its food (strictly kosher) add to the healing environment.
In addition to its new Orthopedic, Spine and Rehabilitation Unit, Hampton Court (16100 NW 2nd Avenue, North Miami Beach) has a separate wing dedicated to patients who are ventilator dependent. The Respiratory Unit has been successful since opening in October 2003. The rehab gym works wonders for patients who come to recuperate after a hospital stay, for respite care or attend as outpatients for state-of-the-art physical and occupational and speech therapy.
Families are impressed with the care and attention given to patients and the ease in communicating with administration in this family-owned facility. The facility welcomes tours by potential patients. Call for an appointment at 305-354-8800.Shelley Benveniste
