Skilled Nursing & Rehab: Hospital to Bethany to Home

With the opening of the Skilled Rehabilitation Unit in 2011, hundreds of patients have come for short stays at Bethany for rehabilitation and to optimize their function and medical care resulting in a return to the community. Bethany is the only skilled nursing unit in the county who has a board-certified and fellowship trained Geriatrician (Dr. Betsy Baum, M.D.) and nurse practitioner (Abbey Baum-Biegie) who are at Bethany daily to deal with any acute medical issues and on call 24/7 by a provider who knows the patients.

Each patient admitted to Bethany has a comprehensive Geriatric assessment to maximize their physical and cognitive function within their goals of care. Both Dr. Baum and Abbey Baum-Biegie work closely with the entire rehabilitation team to develop comprehensive care plans during their stay. This same team collaboration is done in planning the patient's discharge back to the community, taking great care to plan and arrange all the appropriate support.

Bethany is also proud to be a teaching facility, training other professionals in the essential components of quality care for older adults. Resident physicians in Internal Medicine and Family Practice routinely rotate at Bethany. Bethany is also a clinical rotation site for nursing students at Aultman, Malone University and for medical students at NOUMED.
