The Inpatient Rehabilitation Center seeks to create a compassionate and safe environment, using a patient-centered approach to care and healing by creating an individualized treatment plan based on impairments (what type of disease caused the dysfunction), activity limitations (disabilities) and participation limitations (community integration). The program is individualized to each patient's specific needs.

Utilizing physical, occupational and speech/language therapies as required by the patient's treatment plan, inpatient acute rehabilitation is structured to return the patient to a high quality of life and assist the patient to regain the highest level of normal daily functioning.

Both the patient and their family will learn to manage impairments that affect:

  • Self care
  • Mobility
  • Communication
  • Cognitive skills
  • Other activities of daily living

Employing a team approach - physicians, nurses, therapists and other specialized rehabilitation professionals as well as the patient and their family members, will create a customized intensive inpatient therapy program to meet the patient's needs. Education and training necessary to manage medical needs following discharge will be provided to both the patient and family or caregiver.
