Magee Rehabilitation offers one of the nation's leading rehabilitation programs for people with spinal cord injuries (SCI). With more than 3,000 SCI patients in its system, Magee has the clinical experience and the unique peer resources that no other Greater Philadelphia rehabilitation program can offer. Since 1978, Magee has partnered with Thomas Jefferson University Hospital to form The Regional Spinal Cord Injury Center of Delaware Valley. This federally designated model center is one of only 16 in the country to provide coordinated lifetime care for people with SCI and their families. Magee's SCI program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
Magee's SCI services include an expert clinical inpatient program; state-of-the-art assistive technology; unique outpatient therapy programs; and community reintegration services. Lifetime follow-up care is coordinated through Magee to address the unique health concerns of people with SCI.
Magee's SCI inpatients can begin taking part in restorative programs immediately following their admission and initial evaluations. Therapies are offered seven days per week, and physician and nursing services are available 24 hours a day. Patients will be at Magee for varying periods of time, based on their goals and progress. Each member of the treatment team works with the patient for a return to home that is both as safe and speedy as possible. Most inpatient stays are complemented by continuing care services at home or in outpatient settings.
The benefits of rehabilitation do not stop after a patient has successfully demonstrated improved function and has returned home. People with SCI are likely to have some form of long-term disability and unique health care needs through the remainder of their lives.
Magee's Lifetime Follow-Up System of Care provides patients and families with continued access to a rehabilitation physician and a team of expert rehabilitation professionals. This team provides a variety of services to help patients maintain or regain their level of physical function and good health. Case management is offered to coordinate each patient's lifetime SCI care needs. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
