Richmond, VA.— HCA Virginia’s Johnston-Willis Hospital earned national recognition from Newsweek Magazine in the publication’s Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers 2021 list. The facility is one of 18 HCA Healthcare hospitals included in the ranking, and one of only six hospitals recognized in Virginia.
“Our doctors, nurses, and therapists are very committed to our patients,” said Ryan Mauzy, Johnston-Willis’ administrative director of rehab and therapy service. “You can see the dedication and passion they put into their work every day. They do whatever it takes to make sure every patient is where they need to be and progressing as quickly as possible in an inpatient rehab setting.”
The nation’s top rehabilitation facilities were selected based on quality of care, service, follow-up, accommodation, and amenities relative to in-state competition. Johnston-Willis’ 44-bed inpatient rehabilitation center focuses on intense physical, occupational, and speech therapy to help patients progress faster and return home to their normal activities and tasks.
Mauzy said Johnston-Willis’ inpatient rehab stands out because the team provides one-on-one care while also using state-of-the-art equipment. “Somewhat unique to Johnston-Willis is that our therapists facilitate muscle movements using their hands on the impacted muscle, providing patients with truly hands-on care,” he said.
National Rehabilitation Awareness Week is Sept. 20-26, 2021. This year is the first time Johnston-Willis Hospital has been recognized by Newsweek. The online survey was sent to thousands of physicians, therapists, and staff working in rehabilitation facilities who were invited to rate the facilities on certain criteria. Additionally, experts across the country were able to participate in the survey on Newsweek.com.
