In late 2012, we will open a new Transitional Care Unit. Designed to accommodate and care for patients who are not ready to return home and do not qualify for Inpatient Rehabilitation, this unit and our staff will help patients recover from conditions such as pneumonia, congestive heart failure, a stroke, and other illnesses requiring the patient to have additional therapy or assistance.
The goal of the Transitional Care Unit will be to help people get past the hurdles of recovery and back to their lives, work, family, and independent living. Patients may stay a few days or several weeks, depending on their needs.
Our goal is to help patients get back to life, family and friends as quickly as possible. Working with each patient and their family, the team designs a highly individualized treatment plan which focuses on potential, not on limitations. This progressive approach strives to meet the needs of everyone involved in the rehabilitation process, including the patients and their loved ones. Some illnesses or events that may require inpatient rehabilitation include stroke, hip fracture, amputation, neurological disorders (multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's Disease, muscular dystrophy, etc.), rheumatoid and osteoarthritis, and others as recommended by your doctor.
The Women's Pavilion Obstetrical Unit was designed with Family-Centered Maternity Care in mind. Wooster Community Hospital would like to make your birthing experience as stress-free as possible. A patient resource room provides a place where new mothers have the opportunity to meet with a lactation specialist to obtain assistance with educational enquiries and breastfeeding.
The dedicated staff have received advanced and ongoing education to remain current in the care of mother and baby during their stay. Come to Wooster Community Hospital and make your birthing experience a special one!
Many expecting mothers and even fathers get involved with a Breastfeeding Class so they can prepare and achieve a memorable experience with their newborn. At Wooster Community Hospital you will receive instruction by a certified Lactation Consultant, you will find out where to get help if you need it, and you cover the basics of breastfeeding and more.
At Wooster Community Hospital, we believe each birth is unique and special. As you prepare for the upcoming birth of your baby, we invite you to participate in our series of educational programs designed to enhance your childbirth experience. The classes are taught by an expert registered nurse who is certified in childbirth education. A variety of classes have been created to offer you flexibility and convenience.
For the benefit of our community, Wooster Community Hospital has developed a superior blood flow screening to identify potential risk factors associated with the onset of a stroke, peripheral arterial disease and abdominal aortic aneurysm.
Through our low cost blood flow screening, you can discover potential treatment before your health has been jeopardized. Screenings are done by professional staff employed by the hospital and live in this community. Results are sent to the patient within five working days. You do not need a doctor’s order for this test. Anyone can schedule this for themselves. The cost is $99/person. Ask about our Senior Partner discount.
