LAFAYETTE, Colo. – Colorado’s newest rehabilitation center is set to open later this month. PowerBack Rehabilitation in Lafayette is the first collaboration between Mainstreet and Genesis HealthCare. The two companies hosted a grand open house at the property this evening.

Construction started on PowerBack Rehabilitation in Lafayette, located at 329 Exempla Circle, in December 2013. Indiana-based Mainstreet developed the property and Pennsylvania-based Genesis HealthCare is leasing and operating it.

We are thrilled to have undertaken this collaboration with Mainstreet and look forward to future projects,” states Genesis CEO George V. Hager, Jr. “PowerBack offers state-of-the-art equipment and aggressive rehabilitation therapy plans in a pampering environment. The entire PowerBack model is designed to help our short-stay patients get their Power Back and return home as quickly as possible.”

PowerBack Rehabilitation was launched by Genesis HealthCare in 2012 in response to the market demand for shorter post-hospital patient recovery periods and fewer post-discharge setbacks.  PowerBack’s goal is to help patients get back home as quickly and safely as possible.

The 99-bed, 69,643-square-foot PowerBack Rehabilitation in Lafayette features private suites, a large movie theatre, a game room and walking trails, as well as bistros, an on-site chef and more.

“It’s incredibly exciting and humbling to deliver even more aging Americans the services, amenities and attention they deserve so they can get well and get home,” said Zeke Turner, founder and CEO of Mainstreet. “Our best-in-class Next Generation® properties are proudly transforming the health care industry nationwide with our focus on innovative design and hospitality-oriented care.”

This will be the ninth PowerBack Rehabilitation center in the United States and the second in the state; Genesis also operates a PowerBack Rehabilitation in Lakewood, Colorado. From expert specialists to the most advanced technologies and equipment, PowerBack creates aggressive, highly personalized plans to get you home sooner. PowerBack Rehabilitation offers patients:

·         7-7-7 Rehabilitation therapy (7 days/week, 7 a.m. - 7 p.m.)

·         1-2-4 (Nursing, Therapy and Physician assessments done within first four hours of admission)

·         Daily physician/nurse practitioner rounding

·         Care Transition Nurse (for 30 days post discharge)

·         Private Suites

·         Transitional Suites

·         Restaurant-style dining

·         Wireless Internet, flat-screen TVs and iPads

·         Guest Service Specialists

 PowerBack Rehabilitation in Lafayette also offers Transitional Suites for patients requiring additional assistance before they go home. Transitional Suites, a unique service in the post-acute continuum of care, offers patients an independent stepping stone that brings the right balance of independence and clinical oversight to prepare patients for their return home, while potentially reducing their overall cost of care. Patients who need a bit more support before returning safely home can be cared for by the same expert therapists who have cared for them throughout their stay at PowerBack Rehabilitation. Transitional Suites is also available to patients from the community for endurance and strengthening care, as well as respite care.

The project, which represents a total community investment of $16.6 million, created 284 construction jobs and 150 permanent jobs.

PowerBack Rehabilitation in Lafayette will host a community open house for visitors later this summer.
