Our Family Caring for Yours

The Ocala Health and Rehabilitation Center fosters a calm and healing environment by making its patients feel at home. The professionally trained staff of nurses, certified aides, dieticians, therapists and social workers treats patients like family as they help them on their journey to recovery.

Beginning last year, the center underwent a complete remodel with interior and exterior renovations. Originally constructed in the 1970s, the building has undergone a full transformation, which was finished this past May.

“If you visited our facility three years ago and came in today, you would check your Garmin to see if you’re in the right place,” says Administrator David Minnici.

What hasn’t changed at the center is its comprehensive approach to patients’ care. To ensure that patients thrive after surgery, the center’s team of experts considers the unique needs of each patient by creating an individualized program. The team takes into account the patient’s living conditions by assessing their home environment and focusing on the areas where the patient may need the most help and support.

Ocala Health and Rehabilitation offers Step Forward, a therapy program tailored to the specific needs of each patient. The program is set to aid patients with their rehabilitation goals and prevent any complications, such as infection, weakened muscles and poor food intake, after surgery. Trained health care professionals on-site can help with IV ports, drains, incision wounds, pumps and dressings. The team makes it their priority to help patients make a smooth transition back into normal life with assisted post-surgical care.

Other services provided by the Ocala Health and Rehabilitation Center include post-acute rehabilitative services, long-term care and Alzheimer’s and dementia care.

“We have a very skilled clinical team led by our nursing director Jacqueline Hinerman,” says Minnici.

The clinical team is composed of committed and compassionate members who provide quality therapy and care. Ocala Health and Rehabilitation is fortunate to celebrate the tenure of staff members who have served for 20 to 30 years.

Ocala’s facility dedicates itself in upholding the motto, “Our family caring for yours.” The team’s sole purpose is to help your loved one reclaim the highest level of independence possible. The numerous services provided by the center include 24/7 skilled nursing care, occupational and speech therapies, dietary and nutrition services, medical-based financial advice and assistance, and social services.

Let Ocala Health and Rehabilitation be your loved one’s home away from home.
