• The subacute role of the Centre facilitates the early discharge of patients from acute care settings and provides for their clinical management and continued post-acute rehabilitation.
  • The Centre has expanded its capacity to admit people with major pressure ulcers for their ongoing management, both prior to surgery and then postoperatively with eventual discharge back to the community. This service reduces the demand on acute beds. It should be noted that pressure ulcers are a major clinical management issue for patients who are quadriplegic, with a corresponding demand on acute care resources (bed days).
