Your Care Team

Your Personal Care Team

Our goal at Marianjoy is to help you return to a productive and satisfying life after an injury, illness or disease. Providing more than compassionate rehabilitation care, our interdisciplinary team of experts will work with you and your family to rebuild your life – medically, functionally, socially, emotionally and vocationally. Under the direction of a physiatrist, your personal Care Team will develop a comprehensive program to treat all your needs, maximizing your functional skills, independence and mobility.

During your stay with us, your personal Care Team may include:

Within the first 24–48 hours of your journey to recovery, you will meet with your Care Team to complete an evaluation, set functional goals and develop a personalized treatment plan. Your Care Team will meet regularly to discuss your progress, therapy goals, discharge date and any barriers impeding your functional improvement, including specific issues and questions you or your family/caregivers may have. We will guide you every step of the way so that you can achieve your goals and complete the tasks you would like to be able to do, whether independently or with assistance.

In addition to your personal Care Team, there are many others on staff to support you during your time at Marianjoy.

  • Therapeutic sports and recreation specialists help you adapt your favorite pastimes to your abilities so you can get back to the activities you love.
  • The pharmacy team provides safe, effective and timely pharmaceutical care.
  • A case manager is the liaison between you, your family, your physician, your personal Care Team and your insurance company.
  • Professional chaplains are dedicated to the spiritual care of patients, families and staff.
  • Registered dietitians create a dietary plan that takes into consideration your nutritional needs, personal preferences and physician recommendations.
