The Fudge Family Acute Rehabilitation Center at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian recently opened in Newport Beach, California to serve adults who have been treated for neurological and orthopedic issues, as well as traumatic brain injury or stroke, providing a streamlined and comprehensive continuum of care to these recovering patients.
Hospital co-located acute rehabilitation centers are rare in Orange County, with patients relying on a patchwork of private centers to help them regain motor, cognitive and functional skills following a major health event. By opening the Fudge Family Acute Rehabilitation Center at its Newport Beach campus, Hoag is bridging and guiding the continuum of care, using advanced technology and evidenced-based practices to a population that – while recovering – needs a personalized, high-quality level of care.
The 21,000-square-foot acute rehabilitation center features 18 patient rooms, an outdoor therapy garden, a physical therapy gym and an occupational therapy room designed to resemble real-life living quarters. The project team included Align Builders, HGA and Howe Bonney & Associates.
