Board-certified in internal medicine, Dr. Elebiary previously served as an attending physician and intensivist with Woodbine’s pulmonary/transitional care unit. He has deep experience in geriatric medicine across the continuum of care, and his hospital affiliations include Innova’s Fairfax, Alexandria and Mount Vernon locations.

“Dr. Elebiary is highly regarded for his broad expertise in geriatrics and emphasis on holistic care,” said Nikki Gachot, regional director of business development at Marquis Health Consulting Services, which supports the facility. “Woodbine’s quality care and services, which draw continued recognition, including the latest Newsweek honor, has always come from the talent and dedication of its team. This new and notable leadership role for Dr. Elebiary reflects all that he contributes.”

Subacute represents a comprehensive, high level of care for patients with active illnesses, injuries or complex medical conditions following – or as an alternative to – a hospital stay. Some of the most common conditions of those in subacute rehab include joint fractures or replacements, heart issues and diabetes. Subacute patients typically undergo rehab therapy sessions for one or two hours per day, as prescribed.

“Woodbine’s focus on ensuring that patients receive optimal care is second to none; I am pleased to expand my role here,” noted Dr. Elebiary. “I look forward to working with our dedicated team in providing subacute patients with programming tailored to meet their specific needs, enabling them to regain independence and get back to day-to-day activities.”
