What to Expect

At Kingsbrook, we understand the challenges you face after a surgical procedure or illness that requires a hospital stay, so we plan meticulously for your transfer and arrival.  You will be greeted with a smile as soon as you arrive, and we will escort you to your room where your immediate needs will be met and necessary medications provided. After taking some time to settle in, our therapists will evaluate the care you’ll require and plan your recovery with you, setting goals for your return back home.

Personal Items

We encourage you to bring personal items from home as space allows. All personal items should be labeled with your name. Any furniture or electrical equipment will be checked for safety by our maintenance department.

Planning for Your Stay

Since most of our patients participate in rehabilitation activities, we recommend you bring a week’s worth of clothing suitable for physical activity. Some people change their clothing throughout the day, so you should plan for this as well. All clothing should be marked with permanent ink or clothing labels. Our laundry department can assist with labeling clothing. Please let us know if you would like to use our laundry services.

Suggestions on clothing to bring:

  • Dresses, slacks, shirts or blouses
  • Shirts, shorts, undergarments
  • Comfortable shoes and slippers
  • Socks and/or hose
  • Pajamas and a robe
  • Sweater or sweatshirt
  • Coat, hat and scarf
