Unit 1D is currently a 40-bed acute rehabilitation unit and 15-bed geriatric assessment unit at the Credit Valley Hospital (CVH).
Rehabilitation is offered to adults with neurological, medical, orthopedic, and cognitive disabilities. Geriatric assessment is offered to the elderly person requiring assessment and interprofessional team involvement are required to enable the person to maximize functioning.
Effective December 4, 2023, the 1D unit will transition from a 40-bed rehabilitation unit and 15-bed Sub Acute Geriatrics (SAGe) unit to a 55-bed Rehabilitation unit and remain under the leadership of the Rehabilitative & Transitional Services. The Rehab Hospitalists will provide medical oversight for all 55 rehabilitation beds, with continued consultation from Physiatry and Geriatrics.
The 1D unit will continue to offer rehabilitation support to older adults with neurological, medical, orthopedic, and cognitive disabilities, using the SAGe principles of specialized, inter-professional care to help optimize medical and functional status.
