Advanced Rehabilitation Close to Home
As Cape Cod’s only Medicare-certified rehabilitation hospital, Spaulding Cape Cod (SCC) offers a higher level of care than other area rehabilitation providers. With on-site x-ray, pharmacy, and lab services, we’re able to meet our patients’ needs in a timely manner.
Exceptional Healing Environment
Imagine receiving rehabilitation in a beautiful, intimate setting. From light-filled spaces to fully accessible patient rooms with private baths, SCC is designed to nurture mind and spirit as the body heals.
Expert Physicians and Staff
Our physicians are board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Internal Medicine and Neurology. They take a holistic approach to treatment and have extensive experience in their areas of specialty. Our nurses have specialized training in rehabilitation nursing. Our physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapists excel at providing expert and compassionate care focused on each patient’s needs and goals.
Each patient’s rehabilitation team is led by one of our full-time physicians. Their practices are based at SCC, and they see their patients every 1 – 3 days. A physician is on site 24/7 to respond to patients’ needs.
Therapy to Maximize Improvement
Coordinated, intensive therapy, generally 3 hours per day at least 5 days a week, promotes a fuller, quicker recovery. For ill or weak patients, therapy begins at the bedside and transitions to activities important for daily living.
Enhancing Recovery Through Technology & Innovation
SCC’s specialized rehabilitation technologies give patients the best chance for the fullest possible recovery. Our treatments are based on the latest research and best practices.
Support for Families
The conditions that bring patients to SCC often have a major impact on families. Our approach includes helping families support their loved ones and also make their own adjustments to challenging circumstances.
Ongoing Support for Recovery
After returning home, patients may continue to improve their skills at one of SCC’s outpatient centers. They may also become part of a vibrant, supportive community through adaptive sports and recreational activities.
Team Philosophy of Care
At SCC, the patient and family are the center of the team, which also includes the physician, therapists, care coordinator, nurse, and rehabilitation aide. The team meets regularly to review the patient’s progress and adjust the treatment plan to further recovery.
