Rehabilitation specialists in Kansas City
When you have an injury or illness that requires rehabilitation, you can trust the physical, occupational, speed, and rehabilitation (rehab) specialists at Research Medical Center in Kansas City. We provide a variety of individualized rehab and outpatient services to maximize our patients' independence, mobility and quality of life.
Compassionate inpatient rehabilitative care
Inpatient rehab care, also known as hospital-level or acute rehab care, helps patients recover from serious medical conditions, surgeries and injuries. This sophisticated level of care is not available in other settings, such as nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living centers and extended care centers.
We combine the latest technologies with a unique, transdisciplinary team approach to create a progressive and effective program. We always involve the patient and family, physicians and therapists in each step of the recovery process.
To help our patients do the things they want to do most, we address each individual's traits, passions and values. We strive to restore patients so that they may live a full, independent life.
The experienced healthcare professionals in our inpatient rehab unit help patients recover from severe health conditions, such as heart attack, stroke and trauma. Our inpatient program offers:
- 24–hour nursing supervision with physician oversight
- A continuum of inpatient and outpatient programs
- An intensive therapy program, offered five to six days a week, three hours per day, scheduled in 30– to 60–minute sessions
We offer specialized rehab programs to help patients recover mentally and physically from certain disorders, diseases and conditions.
