COMMUNITY-BASED PARTNERSHIPS
Madonna partners with local physicians through our TherapyPlus clinics, Fit for Work programs and ProActive Medical Fitness facility with a shared goal for patients and members to overcome injuries and improve their health and wellness.

TherapyPlus’ four locations provide a range of outpatient rehabilitation services from sports injuries and orthopedic sprains, strains and post-operative care to comprehensive rehabilitation for neurological conditions. Last year, TherapyPlus worked with over 1,100 community physicians who entrusted us with the care of their patients for outpatient therapy needs. This ongoing collaboration and support from community physicians contributed to an 11 percent growth in volumes from last year.

Fit for Work (FFW) partners with over 300 local companies for injury prevention, injury treatment and wellness services. FFW is rooted in community partnerships with local physicians addressing urgent care and specialists' needs, creating a timely and efficient system for injured workers to access top-notch services. The clinician network includes physicians andtherapists with expertise in treating workers comp to provide efficient case closure and safe return to work.

The ProActive team strives to provide medically-based health and fitness solutions to meet the needs of members regardless of their age or ability. Last year, ProActive served as a vital part of Madonna’s continuum of care for patients to continue their individualized therapy programs with specialized programming and equipment. Additionally, the cardiac rehab program served 38 percent more patients last year, referred by 25 community physicians.

 

TRANSITIONAL CARE UNIT
An exciting addition to the Transitional Care Unit (TCU) is nearing completion at the Lincoln Campus. Six new state-of-the-art rooms will expand the current 21-bed
unit to 26 private rooms. “TCU’s growth capitalizes on our continuum of care,” Melody Gagner, administrator Long Term Care services, said. The TCU bridges the gap between inpatient rehabilitation (Specialty Hospital or Rehabilitation Hospital) and the return to the community. “Oftentimes a patient needs that extra step,” Gagner, said. TCU patients receive individualized therapy five days per week, as well as skilled nursing care, to ensure a smooth transition home.
