KRMC Expands Acute Rehabilitation Capacity

at its Hualapai Mountain Campus

Kingman, Arizona – [June 4, 2014] Kingman Regional Medical Center (KRMC) announced today the expansion of its Acute Rehabilitation service, which is located on the second floor of the former Hualapai Mountain Medical Center in Kingman. KRMC purchased the building in August 2011 and renamed it: KRMC Hualapai Mountain Campus (HMC).  KRMC moved its Acute Rehabilitation service to the facility in June 2013.

 

The Arizona Department of Health Services recently approved KRMC’s request to increase the licensed beds from 12 to 18.   According to Shawn Butler, Director of KRMC Therapy Services, “The increased capacity will enable us to better meet our community’s need for inpatient rehabilitation services.”

 

KRMC’s acute rehabilitation program helps people impaired by an accident, stroke, or other disabling condition develop new skills and re-learn previous ones to improve their quality of life. It involves specialized physical, occupational, and speech therapists who team with the patient’s physician and other specialists to provide the best possible outcomes for the patient.

 

The service is equipped with the latest rehabilitation technologies and facilities for teaching patients techniques that can help them make full use of their abilities. Now with eighteen private patient rooms, the service also includes a specially-equipped therapy gym, kitchen, dining room and patient lounge. It also features a fully-furnished “transitional apartment” where patients learn and practice self-help skills before returning home.

 

Patients can be admitted to KRMC’s Acute Rehabilitation service with a physician’s referral. For more information, please contact the facility at 928-692-4688.
