Bringing Relationship-Centered Care Even Closer to our Residents!!!
Bishop Wicke Health and Rehabilitation Center at Wesley Village celebrates the completion of a new renovation project, bringing relationship-centered care even closer to our residents!
The renovations include re-designed nursing stations which remove the physical barriers that prevent families and residents in wheelchairs to connect with staff. Nursing stations have evolved into “interdisciplinary work centers” and encourage interaction between staff, residents, families, and guests.
Also part of the upgrades, which were reviewed and critiqued by staff, residents, and families during the renovation project, are updated sitting and dining areas, therapy rooms, furniture, artwork, flooring, ceiling, lighting, technology, and more.
Bishop Wicke received a waiver from the state for this innovative care initiative, which was considered an “out of the box” idea for their 120-bed facility which provides short-term rehabilitation and also long term care. Several events were organized to unveil the renovations during the month of October, including an open house for both healthcare professionals and the general public and a dignitary event for local representatives, donors, and other guests.
Here is what Bishop Wicke Health and Rehabilitation Center looks like now:
