Cedar Lake Village's Hoeger House transitions people from their hospital stay back to their homes after they've had surgery or if they've been in the hospital due to illness or weakness. Our outcomes are really high, typically with patients returning to their prior level of functioning and higher.
Low Readmission Rates
Our hospital readmission rate averages at 9.6% for 2013. Compared to the national average of 18% for readmission rate, it's easy to see the benefit of visiting Hoeger House.
Under the new health care reform, Medicare penalizes hospitals for readmitting patients already seen and treated. This impacts the reimbursements hospitals receive from Medicare for the patients. Hoeger House's low readmission rates help the local hospitals improve their readmission averages.
Here's what patients are saying about Hoeger House
"I will be forever grateful for help after my fall in Nov. 2012, which caused three fractured back ribs. I was in therapy for about one month. Now, I am able to walk well especially with the aid of a walker. My gratitude extends to the nursing staff, especially the RNs at Hoeger House."
– Pat B., former patient at Hoeger House
"I have been a patient in Hoeger House two times. Once in which I had my pelvis broken on both sides, a broken tail bone and a dislocated shoulder. Working with my therapist twice a day, it took two months for me to learn how to manage a walker before I was back home. A year later I had a complete hip replacement and once again was there for 3 weeks. I was lucky and got my old PT back and we went to work again — took three weeks and I was back home again. Hoeger house is a good place to be if you need the help that I needed."
