Providence Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center Introduces Cardio Pulmonary Care Program
Skilled Nursing Facility Enhancement Meets Need in Greater Philadelphia Area
Providence Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center, a Marquis Health Services member, has launched a Cardio Pulmonary Care Program as part of its planned enhancements at the 129-bed skilled nursing facility in Yeadon. The organization acquired Providence earlier this year and immediately launched a $2.5 million capital campaign designed to serve the healthcare needs of area residents.
Providence provides post-hospital care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care. The new, physician-led Cardio Pulmonary Care Program focuses on promoting independence and quality of life through reducing symptoms and decreasing disability in heart and lung patients, while increasing their participation in physical and social activities. Program features include consults with board-certified cardiologists and pulmonologists, certified nurses on staff, 24/7 access to lab and radiology services, on-site and full-time respiratory therapy, as prescribed, and a comprehensive range of additional services and therapies.
Michael Korman, M.D., a pulmonary specialist affiliated with Mercy Fitzgerald Hospital – which sits adjacent to Providence – is heading the program. “Providence is providing the community with a new, quality post-hospitalization option for cardio-pulmonary care and treatment,” he said. “Transitioning into a specialized rehab program prior to returning home after a hospital stay reduces the potential of a readmission. In partnership with the Providence clinical team, my partners and I are ‘next leveling’ cardio-pulmonary rehabilitation in the greater Philadelphia area.”
Marquis Health Services’ physical renovation work underway at Providence is further modernizing the two-story, 52,000-square-foot facility. Improvements include extensive upgrades to its rehab therapy gym, lobby, common areas, and private and semi-private patient rooms.
“Creating comfortable, homelike environments where patients can benefit from specialized programming developed in partnership with leading doctors and hospitals is a hallmark of the Marquis approach,” said Norman Rokeach, chief executive officer for Marquis Health Services. “At Providence, we are pleased to have Dr. Korman overseeing our new Cardio Pulmonary Care Program – and look forward to further enhancing our offerings in the coming months and years.”
Providence Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center maintains a four-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), with a five-star rating for quality measures. The facility is located at 600 South Wycombe Avenue in Yeadon, a Philadelphia suburb in Delaware County.
