Our interdisciplinary team of rehabilitation specialists is dedicated to improving the physical, cognitive, and emotional well-being of our patients.

Our comprehensive program includes physical, occupational and speech therapy, and neuropsychology to address strength, range of motion, balance, functional mobility, cognitive skills, emotional health, and performance of daily activities.

Inpatient Services

Our inpatient rehabilitation units are staffed by a team of professionals whose goal is to help you recover and transition back to your home environment as soon as possible. As the units are located within the acute hospital, there is immediate access to diagnostic and interventional services.

While on the unit, you will undergo intense rehabilitation coordinated by your rehab physician. Innovative and coordinated therapy programs are delivered by a highly trained and experienced group of professionals, who work together as an interdisciplinary team to develop, implement, and coordinate every patient’s individualized program of care. To maximize functional recovery, each patient receives a minimum of three hours of therapy five days per week.

Outpatient Services

Our team of rehabilitation professionals has extensive experience and expertise in working with patients who have neurological impairments. We offer physical and occupational therapy, speech language pathology, and neuropsychology services.
