Our goal is to help you get back to the things you love – and create or re-create a normal life. We treat the whole patient – physically, emotionally, and socially – by bringing together a team of highly experienced and trained rehabilitation professionals to work with you and your family through every aspect of recovery.
What is Inpatient Rehabilitation?Inpatient rehabilitation is an intensive rehabilitation program provided in an acute hospital setting. Patients participate in a minimum of 3 hours of therapy each day for at least 5 days a week. We have a high patient to nursing ratio, with 5 patients assigned to a nurse, similar to the staffing in the acute hospital. Patients receive daily medical attention from a physician who specializes in rehabilitation medicine, who can manage their medical needs. This “high touch” environment ensures that you get the personal attention you need to make the best recovery possible.
