Sheltering Arms and VCU Health System have formed a joint venture, Sheltering Arms Institute, a state-of-the-science physical rehabilitation hospital. We are bringing together the brand and clinical reputation of Sheltering Arms and the nationally ranked programs of VCU Health. The Institute will blend advanced technology, research, and evidence-based clinical care to create an innovative, transdisciplinary model of inpatient rehabilitative care facilitating superior outcomes for patients.
Why do we need Sheltering Arms Institute?
- Projected need for increased high-quality rehabilitative care related to stroke and other injuries and illnesses facing the aging population
- Capacity and environment limitations at current Sheltering Arms and VCU Health inpatient rehabilitation hospitals
- Collaborations and size are key to long-term sustainability and outcomes for the community in regard to insurance reimbursements
