Encompass Health of Toms River is excited to announce it recently completed a four year construction project to modernize the hospital and add new services and more private rooms. The 98-bed acute care inpatient rehabilitation hospital now includes 64 private rooms with private restrooms and 17 semi-private rooms. Additionally, Encompass Health of Toms River is pending license to provide onsite dialysis treatment and hopes to be able to provide the service in the near future.
When our license is approved, Encompass Health will be proud to be the only acute care rehabilitation hospital in the area offering inpatient dialysis, allowing patients to receive uninterrupted therapy and dialysis treatment in one location,” said Patty Ostaszewski, CEO of Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Toms River. “We have been serving this community for nearly 30 years, and we continue to see an increasing need for acute care rehabilitation. We want to make sure patients in our local community continue to have access to the highest level of services and receive the right level of care at the right time in their recovery.”
The four-phase reconstruction approach allowed the hospital to remain fully functional while renovating the facility. The hospital also includes a daily living suite which simulates a home-like environment including a bed, bathroom, kitchen and laundry room, where patients can practice returning to normal daily activities as they continue to regain their strength and fine motor skills. The hospital includes three bariatric rooms specialized for patients who have experienced a fall or are at risk of falling with equipment to help prevent patient and staff injuries and allow patients to return home as independently as possible.
