Also housed within our Smith Care Center at Plymouth Harbor is a short term rehabilitation program. The program incorporates a multi-disciplinary approach to individual needs, all focused on a goal of returning you to your private home. Our physical, occupational, and speech therapists work together to restore quality and purpose of daily living for those with a serious illness or injury, or recovery from elective surgery.

The Smith Care Center short term rehab program welcomes residents from within Plymouth Harbor, as well as community members in Sarasota who are recovering from an injury or surgery and require intensive rehab before returning home.

As Smith Care Center is Medicare approved, Medicare provides reimbursement for up to 100 days, depending on:

  • The patient’s medical condition,
  • Physician’s certification that the patient requires rehabilitative care,
  • And the patient has spent three consecutive days in an acute care hospital, not counting the day of discharge.

We are happy to answer any questions you might have regarding rehabilitative care at the Smith Care Center at Plymouth Harbor.
