Job ID 387708 Date posted 06/29/2020

Description

Imagine watching your new patient being wheeled into their next hospital room, unsure of what to expect. Over the next two weeks, you get to help treat, educate, and care for that patient to prepare them to go back home with vastly improved functionality. As you witness your patient progressing from rigorous therapy and the compassionate care you give them, you’ll see their confidence build and their goals being met. That patient who was wheeled in two weeks earlier is now walking out of the hospital and heading back home because of the care you provided. This is the rehab specialty. This is life at RHOW.


The Rehabilitation Hospital of Wisconsin (RHOW) is a state-of-the-art, 40-bed Inpatient Acute Rehabilitation Hospital that is dedicated to restoring lives. We are a result of the joint venture partnership between ProHealth Care and Kindred Healthcare to meet the growing rehabilitation needs of the region.


RHOW specializes in treating patients with many diagnoses, including, but not limited to, stroke, brain injury, amputation, neurological and cardiac disorders. In 2016, RHOW received Joint Commission Disease Specific Specialization in Stroke and Amputee Rehabilitation. The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) granted RHOW accreditation in 2020 in Stroke, Amputee, and General Rehab.


At RHOW, we invest in you, our employees. We see your value and want to see you grow in your career. After two years of service, RNs are eligible and encouraged to pursue their CRRN certification and the benefits that come with it.
