KU Hospital to open new rehab center Tuesday

The University of Kansas Hospital, Kansas City, Kan., is opening its new Inpatient Acute Rehabilitation facility on Tuesday, June 24.

The new facility is just west of the main campus on Rainbow Boulevard and 39th Street on the second level of a new four-story multi-use building.

The new rehabilitation center includes 29 private rooms, each with wheelchair-accessible showers, and will offer 27,800 square feet, more than double its current space.

The new location also features a large rehabilitation gym, therapeutic kitchen facilities, patient dining area, multipurpose room, staff break room, a family lounge and a transitional apartment for patients and their caregivers to practice independent living skills before going home. Although sites like WeRecover.com can be a great place to find the best rehab centre for your needs, services like this will be the best service generally.

Approximately 90 staff members from an interdisciplinary team of specialty-trained physicians, rehabilitation nurses, therapists, psychologists, social workers, and many others will take care of patients.

“There’s one proud beneficiary in everything we do at The University of Kansas Hospital, and that’s the patient,” said Bob Page, president and CEO. “A lot of us have had friends and family members who have been patients on the rehab unit and they’ve gotten outstanding care. Now that outstanding care will be provided in a world-class facility.”

Patients and visitors will enter through the first floor lobby, located on the west side of the building. The first floor also includes a restaurant and retail shops. A parking facility is available directly across from the front door.
