Preparing for an upcoming surgery or hospitalization? Been ill or had surgery recently? If so, patients may benefit from additional rehabilitation services to regain strength after a hospital stay. Consider visiting Brightwood Center for post-hospital rehabilitation therapy needs.

Brightwood Center, a Genesis HealthCare skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility located in Follansbee, prides itself in providing exceptional therapy. The center excels in physical, occupational and speech therapies and utilizes the industry's latest technologies to help speed recovery. The therapists use RevitalCare treatment modalities, including electrical pulses, sounds waves and infrared light that provides pain relief, reduces swelling and improves range of motion. The team consults with referring physicians and works alongside specially trained physicians and nurses. Together, they develop an individualized care plan to meet the patient's needs. Brightwood has a full-time certified nurse practitioner on staff, and the facility's 24-hour comprehensive nursing services offer specialized nursing treatment including wound care and IV therapy.

Brightwood Center also offers long-term care services for staying active and mobile, and accepts Medicare, Medicaid and most managed care products.
