Magee can help solve the mystery of Guillain Barre and other neurological disorders.
The General Rehab Program at Magee provides comprehensive rehabilitation to individuals with a wide variety of conditions, such as Guillain-Barre Syndrome and functional decline secondary to prolonged medical illness and neurologic disorders.
The Rehabilitation Team in collaboration with the patient and family establishes rehabilitation goals unique to the needs of each individual patient. The focus of rehabilitation care is to stabilize and improve medical status, increase functional capacity and independence in activities of daily living. The General Rehabilitation Program services are available in a variety of settings, including inpatient, outpatient and Day Rehab.
Case management services are designed to assist patients in navigating through the healthcare environment. Many issues outside of a patient's medical care can impact the patient's ability to maximize progress towards achieving independence. The Case Management department will help coordinate all services needed to arrange for therapy, assist in financial matters and educate patients and families on their disability.

Magee provides a wealth of expertise that is accessible to the patient and family throughout the patient's life.
