Allied Medical Associates provides acute rehabilitation care at Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation in Saddle Brook, New Jersey.
Acute care is a branch of secondary health care where a patient receives active but short-term treatment for a severe injury or episode of illness, an urgent medical condition, or during recovery from surgery. In medical terms, care for acute health conditions is the opposite from chronic care, or longer term care.
Acute care services are generally delivered by teams of health care professionals from a range of medical and surgical specialties. Acute care may require a stay in a hospital emergency department, ambulatory surgery center, urgent care centre or other short-term stay facility, along with the assistance of diagnostic services, surgery, or follow-up outpatient care in the community. Hospital-based acute inpatient care typically has the goal of discharging patients as soon as they are deemed healthy and stable. Acute care settings include but are not limited to: emergency department, intensive care, coronary care, cardiology, neonatal intensive care, and many general areas where the patient could become acutely unwell and require stabilization and transfer to another higher dependency unit for further treatment.
Allied Medical Associates (AMA) believes in a holistic approach to each patient. An emphasis is placed on how a patient's condition affects one's overall health and individual needs. Preventive medicine is encouraged. We strive to maintain one's health as much as treat their illness. We view each patient as a unique individual.
At our office, every patient will be evaluated and treated by a board certified physician. Long standing relationships between physician and patients are encouraged. Continuity of care is emphasized. Patients are cared for in the various settings where need may arise, such as the office, hospital and nursing home.
We strive to make each individual feel welcome and not rushed. We try our best to run a very efficient office and make every effort to minimize waiting times as much as possible. Finally, we view each patient as an extension of our own family and encourage families to entrust their care to us.
