The MVHS Rehabilitation and Nursing Center (RNC) uses an interdisciplinary approach by working collaboratively in a post-acute setting with patients, residents and families to ensure the necessary care and services are provided to attain or maintain the highest achievable physical, mental and psychosocial well being.
"I talked to people and then did my own research and decided this was the place I wanted to go after my knee replacement. I called about 1 month before my surgery and was told that I was welcome to come here. It was very reassuring to know I had a place lined up that was so nice and easy to talk to. My rehab program went really well. The entire staff is pleasant, courteous, knowledgeable and caring. It feels like there are family members taking care of you."
In our holistic approach to care, we believe that one’s life can improve with the supportive assistance found in our Home. At RNC our residents feel comfortable in a safe, warm, friendly environment filled with reminders of home and a caring and compassionate staff.
Our philosophy maintains that living in a continuing care facility should be the next step in a lifetime of rewarding experiences. We invite you to tour the RNC, meet the people who will be caring for you or your loved one and talk with our caring staff.
Every resident is special to our health team’s family. We recognize that everyone is unique and we are committed to delivering resident-specific care that enhances your family member’s life. Working as a team, we provide our residents with the highest quality care, always mindful of the knowledge and experience of our residents and their families.
RNC is a 202-bed facility with a 40-bed subacute rehabilitation unit. With a team approach, we work together to meet our patients’ goals of becoming stronger, more functional and returning home quickly.
Center for Rehabilitation and Continuing Care Services
In January 2013, Faxton St. Luke's Healthcare's (FSLH) new Center for Rehabilitation and Continuing Care Services opened at the site of RNC. The Center provides coordinated inpatient rehabilitation, long-term and continuing care services for the community.
Services include Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation, FSLH’s Home Care Services, Adult Day Health Care and a new eight station outpatient dialysis satellite unit.
The new 24-bed Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit has 10 private rooms and 7 semi-private rooms, all of which have large, handicap-accessible bathroom. The new unit features a transitional living center that simulates typical household activities, like cooking and laundry. Here patients practice every day skills that many may take for granted, such as how to get food from the stove to the table while using an assistive walking device.
Patients also have exclusive use of a new dining room and rehabilitation gym, which creates greater opportunities for socialization – an important aspect of recovery.
The renovations were made possible by a $31.3 million grant from New York State (NYS) which was part of a competitive grant opportunity offered by the NYS Department of Health and the Dormitory Authority. The funding was provided through Phase 20 of the Health Care Efficiency and Affordability Law of New York State (HEAL NY) and the Federal-State Reform Partnership (F-SHRP) to improve long-term care services and consolidate community-based alternatives for Oneida County residents.
