The Acute Rehabilitation Center, an inpatient unit that provides comprehensive physical and cognitive rehabilitation, is dedicated to returning patients to independent living at their highest possible level of functioning. The unit is accredited by CARF and has received a special designation for its work with stroke patients.
Nurses, social workers, dietitians, pharmacists, psychologists/neuropsychologists and physical, occupational and speech therapists work together toward the optimal care of rehab patients. The team establishes a personalized, flexible treatment program for each patient.
Orthopedic patients may see an orthotist/prosthetist and stroke patients meet with the stroke educator. Discharge planning begins immediately and family members are encouraged to participate to ease the patient’s transition to home so they can live as independently as possible.
