New Therapy Gym Among Highlights at Northeast Philadelphia SNF 

Renovated therapy gym at Roosevelt

PHILADELPHIA (April 4, 2024) Roosevelt Rehabilitation & Healthcare Center is celebrating a renovation milestone, marking the Phase 1 completion of a multi-million-dollar modernization at the northeast Philadelphia skilled nursing facility. Located at 7800 Bustleton Ave., the 240-bed center provides post-hospital care, short-term rehab and long-term residential care. 

“Roosevelt is being completely transformed into a modern, home-like environment for residents – one that accommodates progressive skilled nursing care and services,” said Danielle Koons, senior regional director of market development for Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports Roosevelt and is spearheading the renovation. “There is nothing like it in northeast Philadelphia.” 

A centerpiece of the renovation to date is the addition of a 3,600-square-foot rehab therapy gym and the incorporation of a spacious activities of daily living (ADL) suite. The gym features state-of-the-art equipment, including a Smart Car and other technology to support the delivery of progressive rehab services. In addition, the ADL suite mimics a home environment with a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom – enabling patients the opportunity to regain skills before returning home.   

Renovation highlights also include modernized dining area and lounges, as well as updates to resident rooms and nurses’ stations. The facility’s contemporary design incorporates neutral tones, emanating a soothing, tranquil feel.  

“The Roosevelt and Marquis teams are thrilled to celebrate this milestone and are excited about the plans underway in Phase 2 of this ambitious project,” added Koons. “The ongoing modernization includes the addition of a new dialysis den to support Roosevelt’s Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) Management program.”  

During the renovation process, Roosevelt and Marquis have continued to enhance the center’s specialized programming in partnership with leading regional healthcare providers. Physician-led offerings include Cardio Pulmonary Care. 

Roosevelt’s dedicated Russian-speaking cultural initiative also distinguishes the facility, centering on a culturally authentic environment for the care and comfort of seniors of Eastern European descent. With the support of a dedicated bilingual team who share their values and speak their language, residents enjoy familiar traditional décor, ethnic cuisine prepared in-house, and special cultural programming and recreational activities.
