Bethany Rehabilitation & Health Care Center launches new recovery center

Bethany Rehabilitation & Health Care Center launches its new holistic post-surgical rehabilitation program, Lotus, on Jan. 11, 2013, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1 p.m. at the facility on Resource Parkway in DeKalb. The ceremony will be officiated by State Representative Bob Pritchard.

Lotus integrates conventional health care with spa-centered holistic wellness programming to offer post-surgical rehabilitation patients a more enjoyable stay during their recovery. In addition to specialized care, Lotus at Bethany is partnering with Dolce Vita, an Aveda Concept Salon to offer salon and spa services. “Holistic wellness programming uses yoga, healthy meals, soothing music, aromatherapy and other services to sooth the mind, body and spirit,” Bethany Marketing Coordinator Jen Babos said according to a news release.

"I think the community will appreciate having a luxury-style rehabilitation center that is completely separate from the skilled nursing facility and offers amenities that make this typically difficult and uncomfortable process more enjoyable and relaxing,” said Babos in the release.

Bethany’s parent company, Tutera Senior Living & Health Care, has launched two other successful Lotus facilities in the past two years, both in Kansas City, Mo. Lotus at Bethany officially opens their doors to guests on Jan. 14.

Bethany is located at 3298 Resource Parkway in DeKalb. Bethany offers post-surgery rehabilitation services including short-term and long-term care through restorative and therapy-to-home programs. Specialized services include respite care; wound care therapy; IV therapy; and physical, occupational and speech therapy. Bethany offers patients rehabilitation suites, on-site physicians, an on-site beauty salon, restaurant-style dining, Wi-Fi and a computer lounge.

Tutera owns and manages independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing facilities with specialized programs in memory care, rehabilitation and home heath and hospice. With more than 35 locations, Tutera facilities span across the U.S. from the Midwest to the East coast.
