    Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital

    What Is an Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital?

    When you are impaired by an injury or illness and need a comprehensive rehabilitation program to recover, care in an inpatient rehabilitation hospital may be right for you. Your physician will help determine if you are medically stable and physically ready to begin this program, consisting of at least three hours of therapy a day, five days a week. You will also receive daily physician oversight and 24-hour nursing care.

    Why Choose an Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital?

    Making the decision about where you receive your next level of care can be confusing — especially with so many different options to consider. When you choose inpatient rehabilitation, sometimes referred to as an acute rehabilitation program, you will be cared for by a team that understands your individual situation and shares the same goals you do — getting you home as healthy and as quickly as possible.

    This is the most suitable setting when you require physical, occupational and speech therapy. Assessment begins immediately, and service may be provided five days per week. The duration of daily therapy sessions depends on your tolerance level. Common conditions treated are:

    • Major multiple trauma
    • Stroke
    • Brain injury
    • Total hip replacement
    • Hip or femur fractures
    • Total knee replacement
    • Cardiovascular or pulmonary issues
    • Lower extremity amputation
    • Neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, motor neuron diseases, polyneuropathy, or muscular dystrophy
    • Other medical and debilitating conditions
