ManorCare - Whitehall Borough Announces MedBridge Renovation

As the average age of patients needing skilled nursing and rehabilitation steadily declines, the goals and expectations of the industry are changing too. In efforts to accommodate the changing health care environment, ManorCare - Whitehall Borough has made renovations, including a specialized MedBridge unit and other additions to our existing facility to better serve the community.

MedBridge offers medical care and rehabilitation with an interdisciplinary team approach. Treatment plans are designed to maximize independent functioning, improve psychological, as well as physical, well-being and assist the patient in returning home. The treatment team includes physical, occupational and speech therapy designed to address the patient's impairments and prepare them to successfully transfer home. The nursing team, supported by nutrition and activities, provides a broad range of services to support the complex needs of our patients. The design of the patient room and common areas are also considered, which includes amenities for visitors such as lounge areas for visiting and WiFi.

In addition to the MedBridge unit, the center's renovation includes 16 new short-term rehabilitation beds to accommodate the increased demand for services. They have also relocated their physical, occupational and speech therapies to first floor for easier accessibility of our patients and expanded the center's therapy areas.

ManorCare Health Services -Whitehall Borough is a part of the HCR ManorCare health care family which is comprised of centers that are leading providers of short-term post-acute services and long-term care.
