Care Connection Rahway

(located on the campus of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Rahway)


Specializing in short-term rehabilitation, Care Connection Rahway is designed to bridge the gap between hospital and home. Our sub-acute center assists patients recovering from a wide range of conditions, including orthopedic, cardiac, pulmonary, and stroke. Care Connection Rahway provides a smaller, more comfortable setting with a high-ratio of dedicated staff who are trained to assist patients and their families in the recovery process. Whether it’s for a few days or several weeks, our patients have access to our full suite of rehabilitation services seven days a week, including holidays. Our integrated therapeutic rehabilitation programs consistently produce superior outcomes, enabling patients to transition home as safely and smoothly as possible.

Conveniently located on the fourth floor of RWJ Barnabas Health in Rahway, Care Connection has access to an array of specialized medical services available, as ordered by the attending physician. Being on the RWJ campus affords our patients a seamless continuum of care from your acute hospital stay to sub-acute rehabilitation.

Recognizing the uniqueness of each patient, Care Connection Rahway formulates individual rehabilitation plans designed for each client to improve function, rebuild strength, confidence, and achieve the highest level of functioning. The facility integrates a holistic and interdisciplinary team approach depending on the plan care.

The care here is excellent. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner is delicious. There's variety of entree to choose from. The nurses and the aides are very personal and comforting. The attention of administration is well received. The administration's daily visit to my room and the answers to my questions are very comforting. Daily visitation helps me. I came as a stranger, administration and staff are now my friends. This facility is the best!--- Thomas ( Tom) Kelmartin
