Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation

Our Adult Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit consists of 32 inpatient beds, and our Pediatric Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit (age newborn to 18 years) consists of eight inpatient beds.

Our physiatrists are physicians skilled in managing challenging rehabilitation cases relating to stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, neurological disorders, fractures, joint replacements, amputations, cancer, trauma/burn, arthritis, cardiac, pulmonary and pain syndromes.

The Rehabilitation team assists patients in returning to an independent and productive life. The team consists of the patient, nurses, doctors, physical and occupational therapists, psychologists, rehabilitation engineers, recreational therapists, social workers and speech language pathologists. The team collaborates to develop and implement an individualized rehabilitation care plan.  They meet weekly to coordinate and facilitate recovery by collaborating with patients and their families regarding the next step in the patient’s care plan. The acute care and rehabilitation professionals provide exceptional care to smooth our patient's road toward an independent and fulfilled life.
