For patients coming to Philadelphia from out of town to have surgery with Dr. Rumer, we offer a limited number of guest suites at our facility.
During your immediate post-operative recovery, you can choose to stay at Dr. Rumer’s practice facility or at a local hotel. We have negotiated rates with a number of hotels situated in very close proximity to the hospital. Our facility in Ardmore houses Dr. Rumer’s practice, which is situated on the first and second floors, and three guest rooms which are located on the third floor. The cost is $150/day to stay at our facility. Please note that our practice site is not a hospital or a rehabilitation facility nor is it a hotel.
When I got back to Dr. Rumer’s facility after surgery, Dr. Rumer’s staff gave me a number that I could call at any time to get a hold of them if I had any questions, concerns, or issues during recovery. It was so nice to just be a phone call away from a medical professional during the duration of my stay. It made me feel safe and eased my anxiety.
Top Surgery Patient
Each of the private guest rooms at Dr. Rumer’s recovery facility is large and has a full-size bed, futon, a flat screen TV with basic cable service, WIFI, a ¾ size refrigerator/freezer and a microwave oven.
There are many restaurants nearby that deliver, plus a Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s within walking distance. The facility is short walk (under 5 minutes) from the SEPTA (local regional rail) and AMTRAK train station.
One guest may stay on-site with the patient to assist them during their recovery. Typically, patients check-in the day before their surgery and check-out 9 days later if GRS is performed or 3 days after Top Surgery. (Length of stay after FFS varies.)
