Pathway to Thrive

The IRF encompasses Pathway to Thrive, a program designed for patients with complex neurological issues, including spinal cord injuries. It will include activities that pertain to the key components of rehabilitation: recovery, wellness, and prevention. The specialized rehabilitative equipment helps patients target functional goals and offers a variety of therapies, such as standing, gait training, functional electrical stimulation, and pressure mapping. We also provide patient education on wheelchair maintenance and repairs.

We aim to be the vanguard for rural areas in making advancements in the ways we serve this specialized population. Not all individuals with spinal cord injuries can afford to make frequent trips to urban areas for health care treatment. Our therapy team helps these individuals lead their best lives.

Patient Admission

In order to qualify for admission to St. John’s Physical Rehabilitation, a patient’s admission must be considered reasonable and necessary. There must be a reasonable expectation that these criteria are met at the time of admission:

  1. The patient requires the active and ongoing therapeutic intervention of multiple therapy disciplines (physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, or prosthetics/orthotics), one of which must be physical or occupational therapy.
  2. The patient requires an intensive therapy program; under industry standard, this is usually three hours of therapy per day, at least five days per week; however, in certain, well-documented cases, this therapy might consist of at least fifteen hours of therapy within a seven consecutive day period, beginning with the day of admission to the IRF.
  3. The patient requires physician supervision by a rehabilitation physician, defined as a licensed physician with specialized training and experience in inpatient rehabilitation. (The requirement for medical supervision means that the rehabilitation physician must conduct face-to-face visits with the patient at least 3 days per week throughout the patient’s stay in the IRF to assess the patient both medically and functionally, as well as to modify the course of treatment as needed to maximize the patient’s capacity to benefit from the rehabilitation process).

The patient can reasonably be expected to actively participate in, and benefit significantly from, the intensive rehabilitation therapy program.
