Primary Stroke Center

Wooster Community Hospital has been accredited as a Primary Stroke Center by the Joint Commission. The Stroke Team at WCH rapidly evaluates and directs the treatment for all stroke patients. For patients who qualify, clot dissolving therapy can be administered within three hours of the stroke occurring.

A member of the stroke team is available 24 hours, 7 days a week to quickly assess patients and determine eligibility for available therapies. Always remember stroke is a medical emergency; time is the most important factor in the effective treatment of stroke; early recognition of symptoms and notifying 911 immediately is essential.

Physical Therapy

Our physical therapy team provides a wide variety of services and expertise in caring for acute and post surgical injuries, sports and orthopedic conditions as well as pediatric and geriatrics conditions.  Our staff is comprised of board certified specialists, Doctorate degree and advance credentialed therapists.  Many of our staff members have presented at national conferences, and we are very involved in the latest outcomes research.

Occupational Therapy

Our Occupational Therapists provide services to individuals who have experienced a change in their ability to perform self-care, homemaking, work or leisure tasks due to neurological, orthopedic or other disease related processes. The therapists identify patient related goals following a thorough initial evaluation and develop an intensive individualized treatment program to meet these goals. Success in regaining lost skills means greater independence and an improved quality of life for both the patient and their loved ones.

Cardiac Rehabilitation

The Cardiac Rehabilitation program uses exercise and education to help cardiac patients once again enjoy activities they consider important to a high quality of life. The program offers Phase 2 and Phase 3 cardiac rehabilitation.
Phase 2
Nurses and an exercise physiologist closely supervise and monitor the group exercise sessions monitoring heart rate and heart rhythms. Blood pressure is also checked. The exercise sessions take place three times per week and normally continue for 12 weeks. Patients and family members are encouraged to attend classes about healthy lifestyles.
Phase 3
Phase 3 participants use the same equipment they used in Phase 2, but no longer wear a heart monitor.
Education
Education about heart disease is also an important part of the rehabilitation process at Wooster Community Hospital. Patients and their families are given information on a wide variety of topics, all of which are related to recovering from heart disease and preventing future heart disease. This education begins while the patient is still in the hospital and is expanded greatly in the outpatient Phase 2 Cardiac Rehabilitation Program.
Lifestyle changes
Lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, losing weight, increasing physical activity levels, controlling blood pressure and reducing blood cholesterol levels can reduce the risk of future heart disease. All participants in the Phase 2 program are referred to a clinical dietitian for advice on healthy eating.

The Heart Center

You want answers about your heart and cardiovascular system to be prompt and accurate. Here in The Heart Center at Wooster Community Hospital, comprehensive diagnostic testing provides your doctor with the information to treat you quickly and conveniently. The Heart Center’s professional clinical staff and Board Certified Cardiologists provide these cardiology services in a friendly, convenient and comfortable environment.

Home Assistance

Wooster Community Hospital offers a Home Assistance program to help you as a family member or caregiver who dedicates your time to caring for an adult loved one. We offer “respite care” -- or a much needed break time -- so you can have a night out, a day off, run a few errands, or just a few hours to care for yourself.

Home Assistance can offer peace of mind because someone who cares is there to help, whether it is to help you or your loved one.
