Caring for Rehab Patients During COVID-19
By: Peter Schnellenberger
May 27 2020

In early April, Alberto Esquenazi, MD, chief medical officer at MossRehab, began discussions with colleagues in Italy, South Korea and Japan to explore the impact of COVID-19 on rehabilitation institutions around the globe. Through these conversations, Dr. Esquenazi discovered a significant need for acute inpatient rehabilitation for patients recovering from COVID-19.

To help prepare for the inevitable surge of patients requiring this specialized care, Dr. Esquenazi preemptively set up a COVID-19 + Rehab (CORE+) Unit at MossRehab's Elkins Park campus. Since opening in mid-April, the 12-bed unit has been at capacity and continues to admit patients regularly.  

Dr. Esquenazi was recently interviewed for MossRehab Conversations about the CORE+ Unit.
