Length of Stay
Here is a look at the average length of stay for patients in Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospitals in Allentown and at Pocono Medical Center.
Most Patients Go Home – Not to a Nursing Home
We know that getting back to your life is your number one goal when receiving inpatient rehabilitation. For most, that means getting out of the hospital and going back to your home and your family. At Good Shepherd, our therapists, nurses and physicians work hard to help you achieve that goal.
Good Shepherd Provides Great Customer Service
Patients who receive inpatient care at Good Shepherd tend to find their experience fulfilling and effective. When a patient is discharged from the rehabilitation hospitals, they are sent a survey by an independent research firm, Press Ganey. The survey asks them about their experience with Good Shepherd, including the therapy they receive, the food they eat, the cleanliness of the units and the courtesy of the employees. At left are the most recent overall Press Ganey scores for Good Shepherd's inpatient units.
These numbers pertain to Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital-Allentown.
