Post-Acute Care Center
Did You Know?
- 80% of our therapy patients recover and return home.
- More than 900 post-acute patients per year choose us.
- 30% more therapy space has been added to our rehabilitation "gym."
- Most of our room accommodations are private, with free cable.
Our "go-home" rate reflects the success of our approach to post-acute care, and the well-equipped gym in the Hebrew Home's Wasserman Residence provides an unbeatable setting for recovery. When you are backed by positive attitudes and friendly faces, you can work toward recovery with confidence.
"We provide hope, healing, dignity, and value for each patient," states Ann Matesi, the executive director of campus therapy services. "Our program begins with a thorough assessment battery and understanding of each person's goals. We then create a partnership between therapist and client that moves toward a successful re-integration into the person's home environment."
As a not-for-profit organization, we are open to all in the community. We accept Medicare, Medicaid, private pay, and many insurance plans including Tricare Prime. To learn more, call Admissions Director Elaine Gebell at 301.770.8496, or contact us by email.
