ACUTE CARE

Vanderbilt University Medical Center has built a strong reputation as a leader in medical education, research, and patient care throughout the Southeast and the nation over the course of its 127-year history. At its heart Vanderbilt University Medical Center is driven by discovery and the immediate incorporation of new knowledge into innovation in patient care and education.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center is a twin-towered, 658 bed structure and is supported by the most up-to-date systems and technology. Designed to provide each patient with an outside view, each floor of the towers holds a nursing core so that no room is far from the nursing station. A philosophy of patient-centered care insures continuity in the patient care.

Vanderbilt University Medical Center, supported by respected, research-based medical and nursing schools, delivers both routine inpatient care and highly specialized medical treatment and surgical procedures. The hospital is also home to the region's only Level I Trauma Center.

Vanderbilt Rehabilitation Services serves the VUMC with over 50 inpatient OT and PT practitioners. As a Level I trauma center and verified regional burn center, Vanderbilt University Medical Center meets the needs of all types of patients. Therapists are allowed to develop specialties in medical surgical, burn, orthopedics, cardiac, neurological, and geriatric care. Rehabilitation therapists are respected team members providing patient centered care to expedite their recovery processes while working closely with physicians, residents, nurses, case managers, and social workers.

During a hospitalization for an acute illness or injury, patients may need help to become independent and safe in walking or stair climbing and performing their activities of daily living. At times, patients may need specialized splints or positioning to maximize motion and to prevent skin breakdown. Our rehabilitation therapists will help patients and their families meet their goals either while they are hospitalized or by making recommendations for therapy in the settings where their needs can best be met after discharge from our facility.
