Stacey Hoffman, M.D., has joined Kingston HealthCare as the Medical Director and Attending Physician. Dr. Hoffman’s initial focus is to manage Kingston’s stroke recovery program and other specialized services that will further enhance Kingston’s clinical expertise. She will immediately serve patients at Kingston Rehabilitation of Perrysburg.
“Kingston is one of the few skilled nursing facilities in the U.S. to bring a full-time medical doctor on staff,” states George Rumman, CEO Kingston HealthCare Company. “Over the years, we have successfully met the challenge of treating patients with higher acuity levels; however, we must continually strive for even better patient outcomes. Having a specialist in Rehabilitation Medicine who is solely focused on Kingston’s quality and patient care shows our commitment to truly being the best choice for patient recovery.”
Dr. Hoffman received her Doctor of Medicine Degree from University of Toledo College of Medicine, Toledo, OH. She worked as a registered nurse on the medical/surgical floor at University of Toledo Medical Center (UTMC) while completing her degree. She also completed her residency at UTMC. As a specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, she is trained in the treatment of conditions related to the brain spinal cord, muscles, and bones, spanning from traumatic brain injury (including stroke) to lower back pain.
“I am confident that my medical background, along with the experienced clinical and therapy experts at Kingston, will bring the region a high standard of care for stroke recovery and support”, states Dr. Hoffman. “I chose Kingston because I knew that I would be part of pioneering a program that will make a difference in so many lives. My goal is that the community benefits from the same choice”
Dr. Hoffman is based in the new rehabilitation center located in Perrysburg on East Boundary Street. She leads a team of Certified Nurse Practitioners and licensed nurses. The facility opened in August 2013 and features a warm salt water pool, private spacious rooms, and state-of-the-art clinical and therapeutic amenities. Unlike most other skilled rehabilitation centers, Kingston offers one-to-one therapy treatments available seven days a week supported by a collaborative team of physician partners. In addition, the facility holds one of highest customer satisfaction ratings in the state. The center recently opened a dedicated program to support patients who require stroke recovery between hospital and home
Both Sylvania and Perrysburg campuses offer skilled nursing and rehabilitation for all types of after-hospital care, however Kingston Rehabilitation of Perrysburg will house a dedicated environment for stroke survivors across Northwest Ohio and Michigan.
