About Inpatient Rehabilitation
Our three free-standing inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and two inpatient rehabilitation units serve patients with a variety of diagnoses, including complex traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, stroke and other neurological impairments, amputation and orthopedic conditions and injuries.
About Your Rehabilitation Team
Each patient is treated by a team of professionals that include a physiatrist (physicians who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation or PM&R), nurses, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech-language pathologist, respiratory therapist, social worker, case manager, nutritionist, neuropsychologist and therapeutic recreation specialist.
Many of our employees have advanced certifications in areas of rehabilitative therapy such as Certified Brain Injury Specialist Certification (CBIS), Certified Rehabilitation Registered Nurse (CRRN), DPT (Doctor of Physical Therapy), Certified Therapeutic Recreational Specialist (TR), Neurologic Certified Specialists, Fiber Optic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES) and Vital Stem.
What To Expect
You must be able to tolerate three hours of therapy daily to be admitted into one of our rehabilitation hospitals. As a patient, you are expected to be an active participant in the rehabilitation process and skills learned in your therapy sessions should be practiced throughout your stay. These skills include dressing, toileting and bathing as you work toward your increased independence.
Families are encouraged to observe and participate in therapies. Visitation is not limited unless it interferes with patient progress.
