UHS Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation serves inpatients and outpatients, providing physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology and neuropsychology services, as well as lymphedema management.

At every inpatient and outpatient location, our staff works closely with all members of the patient’s health care team to develop and implement care plans that meet each individual’s treatment and recovery needs.

Physical Therapy

We provide individualized treatment services for all patients affected by personal or work injury, illness or disability. Our staff members evaluate each patient, developing treatment plans using techniques that promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function and prevent disability.

Our physical therapy and rehabilitation services include, but are not limited to, the following:

Transitional Care Unit

The Transitional Care Unit (TCU) is a 20-bed, Medicare-certified, skilled nursing unit for patients who have progressed beyond hospital care, but who still require 24-hour supervision for a short period of time before returning home. The unit cares for patients who require IVs, tube feeding, daily injections and therapies, sterile dressing changes, nutritional assessments or skilled medical observation. 

Patients are admitted into the TCU following discharge from an acute care unit at a UHS hospital. TCU patients may be recovering from surgery, a recent acute disease process, or an illness or accident that required a hospital stay. For most patients, an extra week or two in the TCU is all they need before they can be discharged. Thus, the unit eases a patient’s transition from hospital to home. 

Our staff of rehabilitation specialists provides inpatient physical, occupational and speech-language pathology services for patients on the unit, which is located on the sixth floor of UHS Binghamton General Hospital on the Krembs side of the facility. Our unit staff consists of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, certified nursing assistants and administrative personnel. In addition, staff members from ancillary areas of the hospital (for example, laboratory, radiology, food and nutrition, respiratory services, social services, chaplaincy services) also assist patients and their families as appropriate.

To encourage independence with daily activities, the unit offers a home-like, comfortable setting that includes a:

  • Centralized nursing station 
  • Nutrition center 
  • Dining and activity area 
  • Cable television 
  • Private conference room for patients and families 

Visiting Hours
Visiting hours on the Transitional Care Unit are from 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. every day.
