Individualized rehab care

We believe that patient involvement is essential for effective rehab care. That's why we work with patients, caregivers and physicians to create individualized treatment plans for each of our patients.

Our team of rehab specialists offers a wide range of therapeutic specialties, including physical, speech and occupational therapies, to treat our patients' unique conditions.

Conditions that may benefit from rehab

Whether patients are recovering from an injury, disease or surgery, rehab services can help. Some of the most common conditions that affect a person's mobility and function are:

  • Amputation
  • Body and joint pain
  • Brain injury
  • Burns
  • Cancer
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Hand and upper extremity conditions
  • Lupus
  • Lymphedema
  • Multi-trauma
  • Neurological conditions, such as Parkinson’s disease and stroke
  • Orthopedic disorders, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and tendinitis
  • Side effects of joint replacement surgery
  • Speech and swallowing issues and disorders
  • Spinal cord injury

Inpatient rehabilitation services

Patients who need daily therapy and 24/7 medical care can benefit from our inpatient rehab facility (IRF). Our IRF provides the intensity and level of care necessary to overcome the physical and functional challenges caused by serious medical conditions and trauma.

Inpatient rehab can benefit patients in several ways, including:

  • Being discharged from the hospital at a higher function level
  • Regaining functionality in a shorter amount of time
  • Increasing the likelihood that patients will return home after being released

Why patients choose inpatient rehab facilities over skilled nursing facilities

As an inpatient rehabilitation facility (IRF), we’re able to provide a higher level of rehabilitation than a skilled nursing facility (SNF) can provide. In fact, our inpatient programs provide each patient with nearly twice as many hours of therapy per week than is provided in an SNF. Unlike an SNF, we provide:

  • On-site emergency care
  • Rehabilitation led by a rehab physician specialist
  • 24-hour care and daily consultation with physicians
  • One nurse for every four or five patients, compared to 15 to 20 patients per nurse in SNFs
  • At least three hours of therapy a day, or 15 hours over seven days
  • A well-rounded, experienced multidisciplinary team approach
  • Outcomes measured against other programs across the U.S.
  • Admissions from any setting, with no requirement for a previous hospital stay
  • Average length of stay of 12 to 14 days, with more than 75 percent of patients returning to home or to assisted or independent living communities
