Tillers offers new Pathway of Care program

The Tillers Nursing and Rehabilitation Center is now offering a new Pathway of Care program specifically designed to help patients prevent a return visit to the hospital.

The program’s initiative is aimed at managing patients at a skilled nursing level who find themselves unable to cope at home and prevent both the hospital and the patient unnecessary emergency room expenses and hospital visits. With the ever-changing health care environment, The Tillers is working with area hospitals and residents in the local community to facilitate a streamlined process to admit to Tillers from home or the hospital emergency room for a short-term rehabilitation stay utilizing their Medicare benefits.

The Pathway of Care program targets, but is not limited to those patients who suffer from chronic health conditions and would benefit from The Tillers’ Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Programs.

Medicare offers patients a continued benefit period for 30 days from the day of discharge after a skilled rehabilitation stay or an inpatient stay at the hospital for at least three consecutive midnights.

The Tillers Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, 4390 Illinois 71, in Oswego, is able to accept admissions 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Rehabilitation services at The Tillers include physical, occupational, and speech therapies, as well as programs for wound care, cardiac, pulmonary, vision and joint replacement.

If you or a loved one may be a candidate for this program, call (630) 554-1001 and follow your Pathway of Care at The Tillers Nursing and Rehabilitation Center today.
