The program includes individualized attention and therapy sessions in Peconic Bay Medical Center's Cary Grossman Center for Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation, which is widely regarded as one of the most advanced of its kind in the Northeast.
Each summer, PBMC Orthopedic Joint Replacement Program hosts a Joint Replacement Alumni Barbecue, giving former patients, their surgeons and physical therapy staff the opportunity to reconnect and say hello.
Pegasus House Palliative Care Program
Located within the Peconic Bay Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, PBMC's Pegasus House Palliative Care Program is an eight-bed specialized unit dedicated to offering an enhanced level of pain-relief and compassionate care to patients facing challenging health issues, in the comfort of a family-friendly setting.
Not limited to hospice care patients, Palliative Care can be provided to anyone across any disease spectrum. In order for a patient to qualify for palliative care, a patient should have a chronic illness or an acute illness that causes that patient or his or her family to suffer.
The Palliative Care Program seeks to ease pain and suffering while providing the best possible quality of life for patients afflicted with chronic or life-limiting illnesses. It embraces the patient's family, because not only are family members key to providing care and comfort to the patient, but they also are often in need of care and comfort themselves.
For more information about Palliative Care and the Pegasus House Palliative Care Program, speak with your hospital discharge planner or social worker, or feel free to call us at (631) 548-6176 or (631) 965-7737.
