Lakeview Private Rehabilitation
A purpose built modern rehabilitation facility
Based at Lakeview Private Hospital overlooking the waters of Norwest Lake, Lakeview Private Rehabilitation offers outstanding orthopaedic and reconditioning inpatient and outpatient services as well as the latest in equipment, a gymnasium, a hydrotherapy pool and spa and a team of outstanding rehabilitation specialists.
Our Rehabilitation team – compassion & a high staff to patient ratio
The key to Lakeview Private Rehabilitation’s reputation is undoubtedly the highly skilled and compassionate staff, all of whom are committed to delivering the best possible care. They not work closely with each patient but often their families as well to develop programs that are tailored specifically to a patient’s needs with the aim of achieving mutually agreed and meaningful goals.
In addition, the staff to patient ratio is one of the highest in the industry. From rehabilitation physicians, nurses, physiotherapists, and occupational therapists to social workers, discharge planners, dieticians, speech pathologists and clinical psychologists, the Lakeview Private Rehabilitation focus is on comprehensive patient-centred care.
This focus on patient care is what draws many of the top rehabilitation specialists to Lakeview Private Rehabilitation. Mark Magallones has been Nurse Unit Manager since 2017. “I came to Lakeview Private Hospital shortly after we opened in 2015 having secured my previous role as an Associate Nurse Unit Manager in the Lakeview Private Rehabilitation unit,” explained Mark. “It was a dream job. I knew Lakeview Private Rehabilitation offered orthopaedic and reconditioning inpatient and outpatient services but had no idea about the quality of our state of the art equipment, the wonderful hydrotherapy pool and spa, and how the medical professionals were literally hand-picked. The moment I saw the facility I knew I simply had to work here.”
“The rooms are excellent as well. We have 36 rooms and patients often comment that it’s like staying in a hotel. What appealed to me most though was the compassion. It’s something I believe is down to Lakeview Private Hospital being Doctor owned and managed. I immediately saw that the management team at Lakeview Private Hospital truly believed in their “Patient First” philosophy. Something that was typified by the high staff to patient ratio. Previously I had been in environments were the nurse to patient ratio simply wasn’t safe. Here at Lakeview Private Hospital we have a safe staff to patient ratio in compliance with the nurses’ union and NSW health recommendations”.
The Lakeview Private Rehabilitation Day Program… Ongoing therapy without the need to stay overnight
The start of 2019 has seen Lakeview Private Rehabilitation commencing a Day Program. This offers patients needing rehabilitation ongoing access to all their therapy needs without the need to stay in the hospital. The Day Program caters to orthopaedic and reconditioning patients and can include those who have had their surgery at Lakeview Private Hospital as well as patients from other hospitals or the community.
The Day Program provides patients with the same benefits that in-patients receive, namely:
- Warm, caring state-of-the-art environment
- Onsite radiology, pharmacy and pathology
- High staff to patient ratio
- Fully equipped gym with the latest equipment
- Hydrotherapy pool and spa
Our Hydrotherapy Pool
Lakeview Private Rehabilitation is blessed with one of the most impressive Hydrotherapy pools in Australasia making the facility one of the most important for the Seniors community in the surrounding Hills Shire. Hydrotherapy treatment can be highly effective when it comes to treating arthritis and related rheumatic complaints. The therapy differs from swimming because it essentially involves focusing on doing special exercises in a warm-water pool where the water temperature is usually 33–36ºC, much warmer than a typical swimming pool. More details on our Hydrotherapy Pool can be found in our special hydrotherapy feature. Click here.
