An intensive schedule promotes a speedy recovery, which reduces the time it takes for patients to return home with a typical transition period ranging from one to six weeks. Special accommodations are also available.


Following surgery, significant injury or illness, patients want to return home to their normal routine.  Following a hospital stay, patients are often not ready to return home to the responsibilities of cooking, cleaning and driving.  To focus on recovery, many patients enter a short-term, inpatient therapy program.  A thorough rehabilitation program helps:

  • Provide concentrated healing time
  • Offer specialized therapy regimes to support the healing
  • Improve overall function and ability
  • Increase strength, flexibility, and stamina
  • Prevent patients from returning to the hospital
  • Reduce the risk of further injury or complications

To meet these goals, we provide the following specialized services:

  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Speech Therapy
  • Individualized exercise regime
  • Interventional pain management
  • Surgical wound management
  • Cardiac care
  • Respiratory care

  • Weight, disease & stress management
  • Home adaptation and applied therapy
