  • What Is an Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital?

    Our Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospitals offer intense inpatient programs that provide ongoing care. Our goal is to prepare our patients for a return home independently or with assistance from family members or other care providers. These hospitals are for individuals who have been impaired by an injury or illness and are considered by their physicians to be medically stable and physically able to begin a comprehensive rehabilitation program consisting of at least three hours of therapy a day, five days a week.

    Patients admitted to our hospital benefit from specialized intense rehabilitation for medical needs that preclude them from being accepted into a lower level of care such as a skilled nursing facility. All therapy programs are customized based on the individual’s existing abilities, tolerance for therapy and desired outcomes.

    Prospective patients require daily physician oversight, a minimum of two types of therapy and 24-hour nursing care. Every patient at our hospital is treated with dignity, respect and compassion.

    All programs consist of an interdisciplinary rehabilitation team committed to helping each patient and family progress to recovery. This specialized team evaluates and develops a personalized treatment plan designed to help each individual recover and develop the skills needed to return home or to live as independently as possible.
