The Art of Recovery

Jul 10, 2015

Dr. Alan Wang graduated from the University of Kentucky, and did his medical training at Emory.  After 15 years working in the hospital setting, Dr. Wang became associated with Salude to “reform transitional care within the outpatient environment”.  Salude is unlike any outpatient recovery center in the country, in that its “100% dedicated to recovery services”; there is no long term care practiced.  Every patient must meet specific criteria and be able to participate in at least 3 hours of intense therapy per day, 7 days per week.  Ninety-eight percent of Salude’s patients return home within an average of three weeks as a result of this regiment.  “The recovery environment plays an equally important part in a patients recovery”, shared Wang.  “I truly believe that the recovery is an art in which the care environment plays a pivotal role in the recovery process.”

Salude, which opened in June of 2014, is a state of the art, 46,600 square-foot facility.  It offers a serene, private setting paired with a clinical and customer-service experience not generally found in health care facilities.  With 64 upscale, private rooms and bathrooms; a 3,000 square-foot rehab area; 24/7 room service; on-site chef-prepared cuisine; wooded outdoor space with walking paths; fully equipped wireless technology; and award winning art displays and sculptures, “It’s more like a luxury hotel,” Wang explains.  “How can we help our patients have a near perfect experience when it comes to details? Because we believe that’s part of the recovery process.”  Surprisingly all of this is provided at greater cost efficiencies than inpatient care.
