Disease-specific education coupled with the correct tools at home reduces re-hospitalization and assists in maintaining the highest functional status and quality of life for patients facing chronic illness. Avanti has additionally rolled out specific programming such as:

Pharmacy Wellness Program -- educating patients and their families as to medication regimens

Patients can expect the comforts of private and semi-private newly remodeled suites, a concierge, room service and a restaurant-like menu. In addition to these services and the newly remodeled interior, Avanti will undergo a facelift by remodeling the exterior and main entrance of the building.

"At Avanti, our primary focus is to help rehabilitate our patients to their highest ability in a setting which is driven by customer service while in a therapeutic environment," says Amanda Andrews, Administrator of Avanti Wellness & Rehabilitation.
