What is Rehabilitation ward1?
 
RW1 is a 31-beded Inpatient Rehabilitation ward that helps individuals who have physical or cognitive deficits to recover from disease or injury. Our goal is to help each individual function as independently as possible. Individuals who are admitted to the Inpatient Rehabilitation ward may include those who have had a stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, orthopaedic injury, or those who have a neurological or medically complex condition.
 
Who will look after me?
 
A team of professionals led by Dr Stephen Zammit Consultant Physiatrist and Mr. Mark Vella Charge Nurse will be involved in your care during your stay. This team may include: doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, pharmacists, social workers and/or psychologists.
We are dedicated to
  • Providing skilled, evidence-based rehabilitation services
  • Patient-centred care using an interdisciplinary team approach that includes the family, caregivers and significant others
