Update Limiting Outpatient Therapy Operations (3/25/2020)

In an effort to safeguard the health of our patients, staff, and the communities we live in, NRHN has significantly limited its outpatient therapy operations. Effective today, March 25, most of our outpatient clinic locations are closed. Clinics that remain open are only treating those patients with critical rehabilitation needs for which physical, occupational, and speech therapy are determined to be essential services. As such, any new evaluation appointment requests will be scheduled based upon level of therapy service need.

We are pleased to inform you that telehealth appointments are available to all of our existing therapy patients upon request. Please call our Central Scheduling Department at 888-950-9939 for more information on this program and to schedule an appointment.

NRHN is dedicated to making the health and safety of our patients, staff, and visitors our first priority. We will continue to provide updates as COVID-19 conditions continue to evolve.

Update Regarding Tours of NRHN for Family Members (3/24/2020)

In continued consideration of the health and safety of our patients, staff and care partners, we have suspended tours at all four of our inpatient rehabilitation hospitals – Salem, Portsmouth, Nashua, and Manchester.

Your care team will provide you with information and can answer any questions as you consider the rehabilitation choices for you or your loved one.

If you have any additional questions, we are here to help and appreciate that this is an important decision. Please call us at 603-893-2900 and a member of our team will be happy to connect you with the appropriate person.

You can also take a video tour of our Salem and Portsmouth locations from your smartphone or computer.

When the COVID-19 situation settles we will resume tours in accordance with CDC guidelines.

Update on NRHN’s Visitor and Screening policies (3/13/2020)

Amidst the constantly evolving COVID-19 situation, the health and safety of our patients, staff, and visitors remains of the utmost importance.

To that end, we are announcing new policies that impact visitors to Northeast Rehabilitation Hospital Network locations. Beginning today, visitors of our inpatient facilities will be restricted to one designated care partner only. Patients receiving treatment at any of our adult outpatient clinics will be permitted to have one adult companion with them in the waiting area. We are asking that pediatric patients be accompanied to therapy by as few parents/caregivers and siblings as possible.

Additionally, beginning Monday, March 16, everyone entering an NRHN facility will be subject to screening. This screening process will include questions related to recent travel, possible exposure to COVID-19, and current symptoms. Screening will occur each time an individual enters any NRHN facility.

NRHN is dedicated to making the health and safety of our patients, staff, and visitors our first priority. We will continue to provide updates as this COVID-19 situation continues to develop.

Update on NRHN Support Groups and Community Meetings (3/11/2020)

In an effort to help prevent the potential spread of Coronavirus in our communities and after careful consideration, effective immediately, all NHRN support group meetings, and all other community meetings (including pool groups) will be suspended until further notice.

A member of NRHN staff will contact all group members when we believe it is appropriate to resume support groups and community programs.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this decision, and appreciate your understanding as this COVID-19 situation continues to evolve.
