(Henderson, Nev., March 11, 2014) –Tony Chin, M.D., has been named medical director of the Dignity Health - St. Rose Dominican, Rose de Lima Campus’ Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility (IRF). Dr. Chin has been in southern Nevada since 1994, and has been both a medical director and rehabilitation director at a number of facilities across southern Nevada. Under Dr. Chin’s vision and leadership, the IRF plans to grow into the Las Vegas valley’s only rehabilitation institute, with technology and equipment unique to the St. Rose Dominican hospital system.
St. Rose Dominican’s IRF at the Rose de Lima Campus provides empathetic, comprehensive rehabilitative care. Staff partner with patients during the rehabilitation process, and the treatment team focuses on patients’ capabilities rather than disabilities. This approach allows St. Rose Dominican rehabilitation professionals to assist patients in a manner that allows them to reach their highest functional potential and return to their most optimal level of independence. The IRF at St. Rose Dominican offers a comprehensive spectrum of rehabilitation services that doesn't end once the patient is discharged to home, including home health care, outpatient continued care, support groups and additional follow up.
“Dr. Chin is an incredibly knowledgeable, experienced and accomplished physician and leader,” said Teressa Conley, president and CEO of the Rose de Lima Campus. “Currently, many patients with cases of traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury need to be sent out of state for this type of care. Dr. Chin’s vision for what the IRF will look like in the near future is remarkable, and we are so pleased to have him on board.”
Chin holds a Doctor of Medicine from Albany Medical College in Albany, NY, and completed his residency in physical medicine and rehabilitation at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. Dr. Chin also studied preventive medicine at the graduate level at The Ohio State University and graduated with honors with a B.A. in Chemistry from Hiram College in Hiram, OH.
