A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO REHABILITATION
Transitional & Rehabilitative Services
At Symphony at 87th Street, we have improved and enhanced transitional and rehabilitative services wholly for the benefit of our guests. Each guest is assigned a “Transitions Coach.” The Transitions Coach manages the medical and logistical needs required to ensure a smooth transition from hospital to home while promoting function, safety, and independence in as short a stay as possible.
