UofL Health - Frazier Rehab Institute's Stroke Program provides comprehensive services to individuals who have experienced a stroke and to the individuals’ families and support systems. The program serves patients of all ages, with the goal of restoring individuals to optimal levels of physical, cognitive, and emotional recovery following stroke. The organization also values community partnerships and collaborations that serve to increase wellness and awareness of stroke prevention and management.
Because Frazier provides services along the continuum of care, many patients and families are introduced to medical rehabilitation services while they are recovering in the acute care hospital. Each patient’s needs are different, so the recommendations for each patient will differ. Many patients transfer to Frazier Rehab Institute for inpatient rehabilitation, and some patients will be referred directly to outpatient community-based rehabilitation. Other patients may require different types of services (e.g., home-based), based on the patients’ needs and goals. A Frazier Rehab Institute admission liaison helps coordinate the patient’s care plan and communicates this to patients and families, to begin establishing a “roadmap” of the recovery plan.
Regardless of the setting in which services are delivered (inpatient or outpatient), the goals of the Frazier Rehab Stroke Program include:
In 2019, Frazier’s Stroke Program provided inpatient services to 579 patients, representing approximately 26% of all admissions to Frazier Rehab Institute. The age breakdown of this population is:
The average length of stay for patients with a stroke diagnosis is approximately 2 weeks (15 days).
