Short Term Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing
At Bishop Wicke, short-term rehabilitation or post-acute rehab and Skilled Nursing are our specialties. Our goal is to provide you with customized optimal care as we work with you towards transitioning you back home or to an alternative living situation.
Relationship Centered Care – Enriching Lives
You know you're providing the best care when other healthcare professionals choose your community for their loved ones. Bishop Wicke has had the best State survey and a history of optimum outcomes.
At Bishop Wicke, we know that a nurturing and healing environment is critical to positive rehabilitation outcomes. Through our relationship-centered care approach, we're able to accomplish this with our wonderful and caring nursing and therapy team. Our dedicated consistent caregivers take the time time to know each patient personally, building strong relationships and allowing the customized care needed for a speedy recovery.
Some of our specialized programs include:
- Surgical & Medical Recovery
- Orthopedics/ Joint Replacement
- Heart Failure
- Cardiac & Pulmonary Care
- Respiratory Rehabilitation
- IV Therapy
- Palliative Rehab & Hospice Care
Bishop Wicke Health & Rehabilitation Center proudly partners with Dr. Daniel E. Wollman, MD, Ph.D., who serves as the medical director for our Wesley Village campus. If your primary care physician does not currently make visits to Bishop Wicke, one of our qualified physicians will care for your needs throughout your rehab stay. Our medical staff will then collaborate with your primary care physician upon discharge to ensure a smooth transition back home and to your community.
Most individuals we serve utilize the services of a physician for guidance and assistance with changes of normal aging as well as when illness strikes. At UMH, these services are available on-site in the form of primary care (internist) along with specialty care, such as behavioral health, rehabilitation, dental care, and laboratory services. Too often today, most people find that their care is delegated to multiple individuals without a true "captain of the ship". Our goal at UMH is for individuals to be treated in a holistic manner - one which recognizes the complexities of medical care across multiple aspects of one's health.
Daniel E. Wollman MD, Ph.D. has served UMH as the medical director for our Wesley Village campus since 2005. During this time, he has worked closely with the health services division to ensure the highest quality of medical care is provided on our campus. Dr. Wollman provides both primary care and consulting services for memory and cognitive deficits at Wesley Village. Dr. Wollman is a faculty member and lecturer for the Frank M. Netter MD School of Medicine at Quinnipiac University. He completed his undergraduate, graduate, and medical training at the University of Pennsylvania and is board-certified in Internal Medicine, Geriatrics, and Hospice and Palliative Care.
