Top Specialist Overseeing New Initiative at Langhorne, Pa., Skilled Nursing Facility
LANGHORNE, Pa. (March 9, 2023) — Oxford Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center in Langhorne has launched Physiatry programming and in-center consultative support, partnering with John A. Furrey, MD, as the new program’s director. Located at 300 E. Winchester Ave., the skilled nursing facility provides post-hospital, short-term rehab and long-term residential care; this new initiative builds on Oxford’s evolution as a leading regional provider.
Physiatry services – also known as physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) services – blend pain treatments and physical therapy with the goal to help patients avoid surgery. This physician-led, “whole body” approach at Oxford centers on designing, coordinating and overseeing customized rehabilitation therapies for patients while managing their medical conditions, including co-morbidities. The program is tailored for individuals with a range of diagnoses and rehab needs.
Dr. Furrey, who is board certified in PM&R and well-regarded for his medical expertise, specializes in treating a range of medical conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints and muscles. He serves as the consulting physiatrist with Trinity Health Mid-Atlantic’s St. Mary Rehabilitation Hospital and is a member of the American Academy of PM&R and Spine Intervention Society.
“I am pleased to join Oxford’s dedicated team in providing progressive rehabilitation care,” said Dr. Furrey. “We are developing customized, patient-centered rehabilitative treatment plans aimed to facilitate stronger outcomes for patients and improve their quality of life.”
“The addition of Physiatry programming will help maximize Oxford’s rehab services and assist in improving patients’ functional outcomes,” said Erin Popelak, regional director of market development for Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports the facility. “Oxford is thrilled to welcome Dr. Furrey as director of physiatry. He is working hand in hand with the facility’s medical, nursing and rehabilitative teams to provide additional physician presence, oversight and care.”
Oxford maintains a four-star rating from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). In addition to its clinical offerings, Oxford is committed to serving as a healthcare resource for the community. To that end, Oxford has created a resource library of physician-curated content, addressing many topics of interest; it can also be found through the facility’s website at oxfordrehabhc.com.
Oxford Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center is part of the Oxford Enhanced Senior Living campus, which also includes Oxford Crossings, a personal care component featuring a memory care unit, as well as independent living apartments.
