Hillcrest Opens First “Cottage-style”, Post-acute Rehab Cottage

Hillcrest Country Estates’ new Rehab Cottage is now open and offers the first “cottage-style”, exclusively post-acute rehabilitation center in the region. With 22Hearth Room private suites, guests will stay an average of 20 days at the Rehab Cottage as they recover from an injury, illness, surgery or hospital stay.

Hillcrest has been known for its post-acute, short-term rehabilitation services provided at Hillcrest Health & Rehab in Bellevue. “We have modeled those same great services offered in Bellevue at our new Rehab Cottage, located on the beautiful, 44-acre Hillcrest Country Estates campus in Papillion,” said Jim Janicki, vice president of marketing and communications. “It’s another innovative concept for Hillcrest, featuring a more intimate setting for recovery. While open to the public, residents of the Grand Lodge and Villas now have a rehab option conveniently located right on their campus.”

With a focus on recovery and comfort, accommodations include private suites and bathrooms, sofa-sleepers for visitors in each suite, an outdoor gazebo and other private visiting areas.

An on-site chef prepares made-to-order meals for guests, who can dine in the privacy of their suite or enjoy their meals in the Hearth Room, an inviting dining room featuring a 30-foot-high, stone fireplace. The Cyber Café offers an area to plug-in and stay connected while dining.

The state-of-the-art therapy gym is equipped with HUR exercise equipment, which Rehab gym 2uses air pressure rather than weights for resistance, leading to safer exercise. A ceiling-mounted track lift also provides added support and safety for guests during transfers and therapy.

“Our focus is on our guests’ recovery and making them as comfortable as possible while helping them reach their rehab goals,” said Janicki. “It’s not always an easy road, so it’s nice to have those extra luxuries when you are working so hard to heal and regain strength.”

The Rehab Cottage is located at 6062 Grand Lodge Ave. in Papillion. For more information about services, call (402) 885-7007 or email info@hillcresthealth.com.
