We make a difference
Where a person goes for treatment can make all the difference in recovery. Studies1 show those treated in a specialized rehabilitation hospital have greater improvement, fewer complications and return home sooner than patients at nursing facilities. We provide a comprehensive program of medical, nursing and therapy care.

Our hospitals draw on the expertise of medical rehabilitation specialists to address the range of physical and functional issues that occur following injury, joint replacement or other bone-related conditions.
Our interdisciplinary teams are led by a physiatrist, a physician board-certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation, and includes rehabilitation nurses; physical, occupational and speech therapists; dietitians; case managers and other clinical and support staff as needed.
Your family members are also an important part of the care team. They may be asked to participate in therapy sessions so that they can understand your condition and how to help support you.
Every patient has different challenges, goals and expectations. We tailor our treatment to your individual needs to help:
- Restore physical abilities
- Build strength and endurance
- Minimize pain
- Improve balance and mobility
- Enhance skills to perform daily activities
- Avoid complications
- Optimize independence
Your therapy sessions will include hands-on activities, with some aided by leading-edge therapy equipment. Sessions will be provided three hours per day, five days a week, or 15 hours over a seven-day period, depending on your tolerance and ability to actively participate.
Your care plan may focus on:
- Mobility skills training such as transfers, standing and/or walking
- Strength, coordination and endurance exercises
- Tactics to improve communication, swallowing and/or vision
- Daily living activities such as dressing, eating and bathing
- Strategies to improve memory, concentration, judgment and problem solving
- Medication management
- Strategies for returning home and to community life
- Caregiver education and training
It’s important to remember that recovery takes time. Each patient is unique and your stay with us will depend on your diagnosis, rehabilitation needs, goals and daily progress.
