LINCOLN, Neb. (MADONNA)--Madonna Rehabilitation Hospitals is growing, becoming the twelfth largest rehabilitation provider in the nation, according to Modern Healthcare magazine.
Though the ranking by the weekly health care industry publication was based on fiscal year (FY) 2015 net revenue, it is not the only indicator of Madonna’s growth.
From physically expanding into two locations in Lincoln and Omaha, to serving more patients from around the country, Madonna is a world-class leader in providing medical and physical rehabilitation for adults and children.
During FY 2015, Madonna served a total of 6,518 patients, who came from 23 states, in all of its programs.
All the while, construction continued on the now open Omaha Campus, home to a 14-bed children’s rehabilitation unit and 48-bed acute and 48-bed specialty rehabilitation hospitals.
“Our revenue will only increase as our newly formed Omaha campus takes life and grows,” said Madonna President and CEO Paul Dongilli Jr., Ph.D., F.A.C.H.E. “Thousands of new individuals from Omaha and the surrounding regions will have access to Madonna’s personalized, cutting-edge rehabilitative care.”
The new facility features state-of-the-art technology in a 5,000 square-foot therapy gym, warm-water therapy pool, and simulated community called Independence Square.
The second campus addresses a need for quality post-acute care in the region, improving the continuum of care in the Omaha metro.
Madonna’s newly released FY 2016 Annual Report outlines even more achievements and growth.
In particular, Madonna Rehabilitation Specialty Hospital-Lincoln (MRSH-L) saw an increase of 6 percent for inpatients served.
One of those patients was John Cummings, of Wichita, Kansas, who came to MRSH-L after falling from a ladder while taking down Christmas lights outside his house.
John couldn’t walk when he arrived, but after months of rehabilitation, he walked out Madonna’s doors with the use of a cane.
