A post-acute complex care program for serious injury and chronic illness

Providing medical stability and ongoing management for patients with life-altering conditions

Harbor Program Logo

Challenging symptoms, co-occurring diagnoses, recurring hospitalizations — these are all issues patients with complex diagnoses may have to navigate.

Offering a haven for those with serious injuries and chronic illnesses, the Harbor Program addresses a variety of complex medical needs, from pulmonary support and ventilator weaning to wound care and rehabilitation. With the support of caregivers and a dedicated interdisciplinary care team, patients find their course of healing with us — because we’re mending minds.

A complex care program that treats the whole person

Nexus offers coordinated, interdisciplinary treatment, including primary care, neurology, physical medicine, psychiatry, rehabilitative therapy, dietary oversight, and case management. While other hospitals may provide transitional care units, Nexus offers a range of services under one roof, so we can adapt our approach as patients progress through their recovery journey.

A post-acute setting for technology-dependent patients with complex needs

More than a rehabilitation facility, Nexus’ complex care program manages central lines, feeding tubes, and g-tubes, and cares for ventilator-dependent individuals and those with ventilator-weaning orders. Central monitoring to continuously evaluate our patients gives families peace of mind, while our patient advocates work to ensure all needs are met. In conjunction with medical and rehabilitation services, Nexus also offers behavioral and mental health support — which ensures the whole person is cared for.

If your loved one or patient has experienced a serious illness or a traumatic injury, finding a post-acute specialty hospital that offers both medical and behavioral care is crucial for optimal outcomes. Nexus is equipped to provide comprehensive inpatient care as patient needs evolve. From admission to discharge, our team guides patients and their families through a personalized rehabilitation journey, including physical therapies, psychological evaluation and treatment, medication management for behavioral challenges, caregiver training and education, and a step-by-step plan for discharge.

Supporting families of loved ones who have a serious illness or injury

Caring for a loved one who has experienced a traumatic injury or serious illness can be overwhelming. Caregivers often struggle with worry, unwanted thoughts, and feelings of helplessness and anxiety. At Nexus, we provide caregivers the training and support they need to be successful when it is time to go home. Our counseling services also help patients and their families manage their feelings and reactions.

Here are some essential tips we share with families:

  • Don’t neglect self-care. You can’t provide adequate care for your loved one without making sure your own physical and emotional needs are met.
  • Set realistic expectations for your loved one’s rehabilitation progress.
  • Communicate openly with your loved one. Encourage them to share and validate their emotions when they do.
  • Maintain strong connections with the rest of the family, including siblings and significant others.
