Presence Resurrection Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, formerly known as Resurrection Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, 1001 North Greenwood Avenue, Park Ridge, held a special Open House and Ribbon Cutting for the new Presence Sister Bonaventure Rehabilitation Center on Thursday, Feb.28. Park Ridge Mayor David Schmidt and other area officials attended the celebration.
The new Presence Sister Bonaventure Rehabilitation Center, which occupies much of the first floor of Presence Resurrection Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, is named for Sister Bonaventure Kusek, C.R., one of the founders of the Resurrection Health Care system. The state-of-the-art facility will make short-term rehabilitation more beneficial than ever.
“We planned this new addition to better serve the needs of the community,” said James Farlee, Administrator of Presence Resurrection Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.
“Patients will arrive at a new, welcoming entrance under a protective canopy. They will enjoy 19 newly-remodeled private patient rooms with private bathrooms; a new Rehabilitation Gym; patient, family and physician lounges; a Spa and Bistro; a newsstand; 24 hour concierge service, and a secure outdoor private Serenity Garden and Walking Path.”
Presence Resurrection Nursing and Rehabilitation Center provides rapid, intensive rehabilitation that allows patients who have had hip or knee replacements, or other types of surgery, to return home and get back to work as quickly – and safely – as possible.
“The new Presence Sister Bonaventure rehabilitation wing is just one more tool that helps us provide rehabilitation to the ever-increasing number of people who need short-term care, so they can more quickly return home and to their other normal daily activities,” Farlee explained.
