COMPREHENSIVE REHABILITATION SERVICES
Rehabilitation services are an important component for a successful recovery. Our comprehensive rehabilitation services help patients get back on their feet and on with their lives as quickly and as safely as possible. Our goal is to help our patients return home – stronger, more independent and ready to thrive. Many patients return home following a brief rehabilitative stay at our center.
When you stay with us for rehabilitation services following an illness or injury, you’ll receive individualized attention and treatment that will help you regain mobility, function and independence, along with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that you’re with people who truly care.

Through physical therapy, patients are able to improve their muscle strength and coordination following injury or illness. The focus is on mobility - moving safely in bed, getting up and down from a chair, walking or negotiating stairs, ramps and curves. Physical therapy can also help control or alleviate acute and chronic pain. Our therapists work closely with physicians and the nursing staff to develop an appropriate treatment program and this program is adjusted as necessary to help patients reach their maximum potential through rehabilitation.
Occupational therapy helps people who have lost some of their ability to perform important life functions like eating, bathing and dressing, as well as ordinary activities like cooking, doing laundry or other tasks, typically as a result of illness or injury. We evaluate the impact of the patient's surgery, injury or illness on his/her activities both at home and in work situations, as well as considering a patient's hobbies and recreational activities. Then an individualized treatment plan is implemented and assistive devices are prescribed to improve the quality of the patient's daily living activities.
Speech therapy helps people who have suffered a stroke or other injury or illness to re-learn how to communicate through speaking, reading or writing. Speech therapy also helps those who have difficulty chewing or swallowing during meals, and it helps improve memory skills so the patient can perform tasks like managing medications or getting help in emergency situations. We incorporate physical exercises to strengthen the muscles used in speech, use speech drills to improve clarity, and incorporate sound-production practice to improve articulation. We also provide cognitive training and methods for communicating with the hearing impaired.
We understand that patients want to get their health back to the level it was before illness, surgery or injury. We have designed our outpatient therapy to fit the needs of each individual patient so they receive the therapy regimen that is best for them, while setting their own schedule and maintaining their normal daily activities. We offer physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy on an outpatient basis. Outpatient services may not be available at all locations.
