5 Years of Rehabilitation Center Kitzbühel
Personalized rehabilitation and zest for life in a health-conscious environment
Kitzbühel, September 2018: On September 17th, 2013, the first patients were welcomed to the Rehabilitation Center Kitzbühel. Since its opening five years ago, the facility of the international healthcare service provider VAMED has become an indispensable institution in Kitzbühel and a rehabilitation center recognized far beyond the regional borders.
The Rehabilitation Center Kitzbühel offers modern therapy concepts for the physical recovery and improved mobility of patients in orthopedic, traumatological, sports medicine and neurosurgical rehabilitation. The treatment is directed to patients with diseases of the musculoskeletal system, as well as to patients with acute or chronic complaints or orthopedic injuries. After operations on the spine, the intervertebral discs and the peripheral nerves, patients likewise receive optimal possible care and rehabilitation here.
More than 10,000 patients successfully treated
Patients come to Kitzbühel for rehabilitation from all over Austria – primarily from Tyrol, Salzburg, Upper Austria, Lower Austria and Vienna –, as well as from Germany, Italy and Switzerland. More than 10,000 patients have been treated since the opening. The youngest patient was just 12 years old, and the oldest patient celebrated her 100th birthday during her rehabilitation stay.
The medical director, Prim. Priv.-Doz. Dr. Michael Fischer, sees the reasons on the one hand in the high medical and therapeutic competence and on the other in the feel-good atmosphere of the house and the personal care provided by the entire team.
Therapy at the highest level
1,800 minutes of therapy are planned for a three-week stay in the rehabilitation center, which is approximately two to three hours of therapy per day, divided into individual and group therapies such as massages, strength training, gymnastics and lectures. In the patient survey, 98 % of patients rate the therapy as very successful. It is not for nothing that the Rehabilitation Center Kitzbühel is a pioneer in the field of personalized rehabilitation. The international ICF (International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health) concept applied here also takes the patients’ wishes and living conditions into account.
Many projects and milestones positively implemented
At the Rehabilitation Center Kitzbühel, it is known that the success of the center is due to the committed and motivated employees and the cooperative interaction within and between the teams. The excellent medical-therapeutic reputation of the rehabilitation center is based on the personalized rehabilitation approach, the international ICF concept up to the awards for scientific projects, the special award “Best House” for employee satisfaction, and the excellent results of patient surveys. Regular advanced training and team building measures of the employees are supported with an extensive internal offer.
The excellent fresh cuisine, the new rehabilitation card and the comprehensive range of entertainment programs, as well as the patronage of the Kitzbühel summer concerts, ensure well-being during the patients’ stay.
The rehabilitation center has developed into an important economic factor
With the Rehabilitation Center Kitzbühel, more than 70 highly qualified jobs were created, most of which are now filled with employees from the region. The patients as well as their visitors and accompanying persons, but also the rehabilitation center itself, contribute considerably to regional value creation through their purchases and sales.
The Rehabilitation Center invited to the open day on the occasion of the anniversary. Many interested visitors from near and far took the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of the rehabilitation center and get to know the offer.
