Hillcrest Firethorn Earns Medicare Certification
Upon successful completion of a survey by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, Hillcrest Firethorn (hillcrestfirethorn.com) was awarded certification to serve Medicare patients.
One of the most innovative post-acute rehab centers, Hillcrest Firethorn is exclusively dedicated to short-term care after a surgery, illness or hospital stay. Most guests receive services for 7 to 20 days before returning home, based on diagnosis and physician orders. Medicare pays the first 20 days of post-acute rehab for eligible patients who are discharging from a hospital after a minimum three-night stay.
“Hillcrest Firethorn is unique among Lincoln’s post-acute care providers because of our made-to-order culinary program, in-house therapy team, state-of-the-art therapy gym and beautiful, new common spaces to support comfortable lifestyles during recovery,” said Jim Janicki, Vice President of Customer Navigation. “We are offering more amenities than traditional rehab providers in order to meet the demands of today’s aging adults, especially the baby boomer population.”
Hillcrest Firethorn is located at 8601 Firethorn Lane in Lincoln.
