Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation at Comanche County Memorial Hospital

Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation at Comanche County Memorial Hospital offers patients the security of having medical diagnostic and therapeutic services readily available, to include 24-hour physician support, and access to CCMH emergency medical personnel. Patients will also benefit from our hospital network of specialists available.

We are a comprehensive, integrated inpatient rehabilitation program, accredited by CARF International. We provide interdisciplinary rehabilitation care for patients from adolescence through geriatric. Care is provided by a team of medical professionals ensuring your care is complete. Our 4,000 square-foot gymnasium is an ideal setting for all types of physical and occupational therapy and rehabilitation services. The heated pool allows therapy for post-surgery patients that may not be able to participate in weight-bearing exercise.

Patients requiring inpatient rehabilitation may be admitted to Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation at Comanche County Memorial Hospital. Under the supervision of a physiatrist (a physician who specializes in rehabilitation), a treatment team of physicians, nurses, therapists, dietitians, social workers and case managers work together with patients and their families to set realistic goals, develop treatment plans and monitor progress of all patients.

Patients and family members are very important members of this team, and are encouraged to ask questions throughout their stay. The more our patients understand about why they require rehabilitation, how their program works, and what to expect in the future, the more effective we can be in working together.

The entire treatment team meets weekly to review each patient's goals and progress. Following this meeting, a social worker meets with the patient or family, as appropriate, to share new goals and information. Our nurses and other team members are always available to answer questions. Whenever possible, we encourage prospective patients and their families to visit the Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation Unit prior to admission to become familiar with the program and staff and to discuss expectations for the patient's rehabilitation.

To help our treatment team evaluate a patient's readiness to return to the community, a patient may be scheduled for a short pass away from the hospital, and/or a brief stay in the transitional living apartment. Here, a patient can practice living alone or with a spouse in a typical home environment. Trying out new skills in this protected environment helps patients build confidence and reduces the anxiety of leaving the hospital.

To better serve the safety and physical needs of our patients, a home evaluation will be conducted by the appropriate staff members if a need is indicated by the rehabilitation team and staff.
