SAVANNAH, Ga., Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Yesterday, hundreds of local community members joined staff members, family and friends of those in the care of PruittHealth - Savannah, (formerly known as UniHealth Post-Acute Care - Savannah), for a much anticipated open house event. Guests were given a guided tour of the 18,000 square foot, multi-million dollar building addition that is the first phase of a complete center revitalization.
PruittHealth - Savannah is a leader in quality care and has received a 5-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The skilled nursing and rehabilitation center is licensed to care for 120 patients at a time, some who need short term rehabilitation and some who require long term assistance with round the clock care. Post-renovation that number of patients remains the same, as this expansion was not about increasing numbers, but rather about adding new, state-of-the-art therapy amenities, along with additional private suites, and moving towards an overall modernization in order to create a safer, and more comfortable environment for all of our guests.
New amenities at PruittHealth - Savannah include: an advanced rehabilitation suite complete with a Hydroworx® therapy pool and Biodex® equipment, a coffee shop, spa, library and internet cafe, additional nurses stations, covered pergolas, additional restaurant-style dining room, activity space, WanderGuard® Nurse Call System, a generator upgrade, additional parking, and modern, home-like finishing and decor.
"We know that the improvements to this center are going to better the lives of all of our patients, and that is what drives our organization - their comfort and rehabilitation are always in the forefront of our every decision. We are proud to be a member of the Chatham County community and thankful to be able to provide quality services and amenities for those seeking care after illness or injury," said Neil L. Pruitt, Jr., Chairman & C.E.O.
Guests are invited to schedule their own personalized tour of the updated PruittHealth - Savannah, located at 12825 White Bluff Road, where staff can answer your questions and discuss a customized plan of care that best suits your needs and requests. Call 912-927-9416 for more information.
