Passport Rehabilitation

The journey back home after a hospital stay is often without close coordination. Our Passport Rehabilitation Program and Passport+ care programs are designed to address the specific care needs of patients who are among the highest risk of re-hospitalization. Using best in class programs our teams are carefully trained in each of our specialty programs.

Quality is an ongoing primary focus of the Passport Program. In order to quality of the program, key performance expectations are monitored including: 5-star rating, customer satisfaction clinical staffing, readmission rates and home health care collaborations.

Once Marlborough Center met those requirements, they became Passport Certified and began working toward the care integration portion of the program. Using marketplace data, acute care hospital capabilities and existing clinical expertise, the center began a path toward Cardiac, Pulmonary and Orthopedic specialty programming.

Pathways drive each portion of the Passport+ Program. These specially designed pathways integrate nursing. medicine and therapy programs and design an outcome-based care plan for each patient from hospital bedside to a safe return home with home care.

Often times individuals come to us on a planned basis following a pre-scheduled surgery. Make us part of your journey to a more fulfilling life by pre-booking your room and therapy services in advance of your surgery. We will handle all of the “paperwork” for you and your surgeon, by working with Medicare and your insurance carrier to give you one less thing to worry about.
