The Homestead Rehabilitation and HealthCare Center is a facility poised for growth and is steadily implementing an expansion of services that improve the delivery of health care for residents and patients. The 102 bed facility accepts medicare and medicaid in addition to private pay, most major insurances and workman's comp. The facility is unique in that there is a physician in attendance every day and the doctor performs weekly rotations. The team of docs hail from the same practice making for a smooth transition of patient care when rotations shift. The Homestead is about to add another new piece to their expanding services; Patients scheduled for orthopedic surgery can now also arrange their follow up therapy in advance. The Homestead is the only facility which will insure a bed is available on the scheduled discharge date. If complications arise which delay discharge, the Homestead will prioritize admittance and work with the patient and family to make admittance as smooth and easy as possible. These two recently introduced programs, Premier Care and Pre Admission, are steps ahead of other facilities and are part of the overall vision of the Homestead RHCC, "redefining the delivery of health care" in the Sussex County community.
The facility is well staffed. The campus is beautiful (more than 14 acres of ponds, gardens and natural beauty), compassionate and effective therapy and nursing teams complimenting a hands on physician driven approach to recovery. The Homestead Rehabilitation and HealthCare Center anticipates some major changes to the facility in the near future. The design changes will compliment the excellent medical care offered and the family-like culture which is part of the heritage of this Sussex County facility.
