POWERBACK REHABILITATION IN PISCATAWAY TO CONVERT TO PARTIAL COVID-19 REHABILITATION CENTER4/8/2020
Piscataway, NJ (April 8, 2020) – PowerBack Rehabilitation, a short-term, post-hospital rehabilitation facility located in Piscataway, New Jersey, today announced it is converting to a partial coronavirus (COVID-19) post-acute care center in order to assist hospitals in expanding capacity during this unprecedented crisis.
As the COVID-19 pandemic expands exponentially in New Jersey, PowerBack Rehabilitation is poised to assist hospitals who are inundated with COVID-19 patients. PowerBack is responding to Governor Philip D. Murphy’s Executive Order No.1 03, declaring a Public Health Emergency in New Jersey as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Center is in constant communication with the New Jersey Department of Health and partner hospitals to ensure a smooth transition.
PowerBack Rehabilitation plans to safely discharge individuals from its third floor directly home, if their current health status permits, or will safely transfer patients to another facility where their care will be continued. The Center will work with patients and their families to find the best location for their care needs and to ensure as smooth a transition as possible. The Center’s second floor will remain unchanged as a short stay rehabilitation floor operated completely separate from the third floor.
“We are so thankful for PowerBack Rehabilitation’s willingness to step up and assist us with managing the surge of COVID-19 patients we are experiencing,” states John F. Bonamo, MD, EVP, Chief Medical and Quality Officer, RWJ Barnabas Health. “At this time, we have dozens of stable COVID-19 patients, but have been unable to discharge them to post-acute rehabilitation facilities for the duration of the virus. PowerBack Rehabilitation will be key in helping us to open up needed hospital beds as the pandemic continues to expand in our community and state.”
