A short-term facility adjacent to but separate from Crisp Regional Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, Crisp Regional Health Services’ Cordele Health and Rehab offers care for patients recovering from illness or injury or from conditions that have been addressed through surgery. The cheerful color scheme, welcoming staff, full roster of activities and dedicated entrance make the facility appealing and easily accessible to patients and their loved ones.
Patients at Cordele Health and Rehab may be dealing with a variety of conditions, including cardiac, orthopedic and neurological challenges. To work through these conditions and help patients return home with their prior level of function restored, they may participate in occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy. Services such as IV therapy and wound treatment are also available.
“We address the specific needs of each individual,” says Kameron Causey, PT, DPT, physical therapist with Cordele Health and Rehab. “People can come here for more intensive treatments than they would get from home health or on an outpatient level.”

“Volunteers from the South Georgia community often attend and help out during these programs, and everyone loves the collaboration,” Rena says. “These activities give patients a chance to socialize and live life to the fullest as they prepare to return home.”
