St. Mary Rehabilitation Hospital

St. Mary Medical Center in Langhorne, PA, in partnership with Centerre Healthcare Corporation, headquartered in Nashville, have begun construction on the St. Mary Rehabiliation Hospital, scheduled for completion in spring of 2014. The facility will provide acute inpatient rehabilitation services for patients who require a high level of specialized treatment -- first specialty hospital of its kind in Bucks County.

A groundbreaking ceremony for the St. Mary Rehabiliation Hospital took place on April 29, 2013

Dedicated brain-injury, spinal-cord-injury, trauma and stroke units will help promote the recovery of individuals who have functional deficits resulting from injury or illness.

St. Mary finalized the purchase of property that was the site of the former Neshaminy Middle School from the Neshaminy School District to develop the St. Mary Rehabilitation Hospital and Outpatient Campus.  The St. Mary Rehabilitation Hospital is part of the first phase in the development of this new campus, which will be located directly across the street from the Medical Center’s main campus. With the opening of the new 50-bed rehabilitation hospital, St. Mary will relocate its existing 31-bed rehabilitation unit currently on the main campus, and convert the medical center space to a private-bed patient-care unit.

The new state-of-the-art 55,000 square foot specialty hospital will provide attractive patient-friendly private rooms. Physical, occupational and speech therapy, and neuropsychology are among services provided to help patients regain their highest level of functional independence.  The hospital will include spacious therapy gyms equipped with the latest in rehabilitative equipment, indoor and outdoor dining areas, simulated home training environments and an innovative outdoor therapy courtyard complete with a putting green, basketball court and walking path. 

Unique Features

Unique to this region will be a self-contained, secured Brain Injury Unit to treat patients with behavioral and cognitive issues that may put them at-risk in a less structured environment.  The secure Brain Injury Unit will have a supervised, low stimulation, calm setting with focused therapies to assist these patients in recovery.

St. Mary chose to partner with Centerre based on its nationally renowned reputation and experience in providing high-quality, patient-centered care and rehabilitation services focused on improving clinical outcomes.

The need for physical rehabilitation services is anticipated to grow as the population ages in our region and continues to be affected by the high incidence of stroke, cardiovascular and orthopedic conditions.  In addition, the specialty hospital will complement the services of the St. Mary Regional Trauma Center in continuing the rehabilitation needs of patients who have suffered serious injury.

In 2012, the rehabilitation unit at St. Mary ranked in the top 5 percent of 789 nationwide rehabilitation facilities evaluated by the UDSMR® in their Program Evaluation Model.

A specialized hospital dedicated solely to physical rehabilitation is beneficial to patient recovery. With the addition of a specialized hospital for inpatient rehabilitation, St. Mary strengthens the level of comprehensive care offered to meet the challenging needs of often complex medical conditions.  Most patients who have been in hospital-based rehabilitation benefit in continuing therapy to maintain and improve overall health and functional ability.  Outpatient rehabilitation services are provided on the hospital main campus and at the Cornerstone Executive Suites near Oxford Valley Mall.  The experienced certified therapists at St. Mary integrate evidence-based treatments, leading-edge technologies and adaptive techniques to promote recovery. In addition, patients can continue to improve mobility, strength and endurance with step-down programs available through the Wellness Center on the main hospital campus.
