Specialized Care for Medically Complex Illness and Injury

As medically complex patients begin their recovery, HealthBridge provides 24/7 care that helps them reach their therapeutic goals

complex care nurseWe’ve learned there is no single solution to caring for catastrophic injuries and illnesses. More importantly, we understand that pulmonary illnesses or diseases can compound the complexity of treating patients who have been in a car accident or suffer from congenital anomalies.

The HealthBridge Difference

Our industry-leading high staff-to-patient ratios and adherence to state and national standards provides slow-to-progress, medically complex patients with unmatched care management. These patients and their families are given real hope for the maximum recovery potential at HealthBridge complex care and rehabilitation nursing facilities. The HealthBridge difference is evidenced in our ability to:

  • Offer complete ventilator nursing care, including weaning patients with pulmonary illnesses from a ventilator and/or tracheostomy
  • Treat neuromuscular disorders that attack the nerves in muscles and hinder a person’s ability to control bodily movements
  • Care for congenital anomalies that cause spinal malformations and critically affect vital organs
  • Provide active spinal cord rehabilitation and brain injury care
