The Inpatient Orthopedic Program at Sunnyview Rehabilitation Hospital is proud of its clinical outcomes. In 2012, we served 1036 individuals, of which 482 were Total Joint Replacements.
We realize that it is important to our patients to return home with their loved ones as soon as possible. We are happy to report that 99 percent of our Total Joint Replacements returned back to their home and community, which compares very favorably with other inpatient orthopedic rehabilitation programs in the nation and the region. The average length of stay for our joint patients was 5.6 days, shorter than other inpatient orthopedic rehabilitation facilities in the nation and the region. Hip fracture patients’ average length of stay was shorter than the nation and the region: 77 percent of our hip fracture patients returned home compared to the nation at 72 percent.
The average number of therapy hours per day for general orthopedic patients was 3.03.
The average number of therapy hours per day for patients with lower extremity joint replacements was 3.02.
