Select Medical utilizes a rigorous systematic framework to guide, monitor and improve the safety, quality and outcomes across all areas of care in our 135+ specialty hospitals. This standardized approach, guided by Select Medical’s National Medical Advisory Board for critical illness recovery and Medical Rehabilitation Advisory Committee for inpatient acute rehabilitation, drives clinical excellence that emphasizes a culture of delivering an exceptional patient experience.
Clinical leadership at the local level of our hospitals follow these evidence-based protocols to help restore functional mobility and independence of patients recovering from critical illness and catastrophic injury. Personalized treatment plans are created in close collaboration with the hospital medical directors and Select Medical Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer Dr. Samuel Hammerman, MMM, CPE, FCCP and Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital Division Chief Medical Officer Dr. Jose Vargas, FAAPMR.
Across our more than 1,900+ outpatient rehabilitation centers, our evidence-based approach uses standardized patient- and performance-based outcome measures that guide our pursuit of clinical excellence. Using outcomes, our licensed therapists prioritize the wellbeing and monitor the progress of patients as they engage in goal-directed, individualized treatment plans.
Across the Select Medical continuum of care, clinical outcomes are the cornerstone of our success and are reflected in our unwavering dedication to ensuring each patient is met with the highest standards of care.
