The renovated Ebenezer Ridges TCU is for patients who are well enough to leave the hospital but not yet ready to go home and take care of themselves. The unit has expanded from 12 to 24 rooms and is Medicare certified to provide short-term rehabilitation after a hospital stay. It is located down the street from Fairview Ridges Hospital.
Unit staff provide occupational, physical and speech therapy, helping patients prepare for home life. The rehab gym has nearly doubled in the size, with new parallel bars and a ceiling lift to help people with gait or walking issues.
Patient suites at the TCU include a bed, full-size bathroom and kitchenette with a working sink and mini-fridge. Patients typically stay on the unit for 14 days, depending on their needs.
