Why Inpatient Rehabilitation?

Shorter Length of Stay

Patients treated in an inpatient rehabilitation facility stay about half as long as those treated elsewhere, returning to the community sooner.

Better Outcomes

Patients treated in inpatient rehabilitation facilities have better long-term clinical outcomes.

Fewer Hospital Visits

Inpatient rehabilitation hospital patients experienced significantly fewer emergency room visits and hospital readmissions per year than patients treated elsewhere.

Patient Stories

I’ve learned things that I never could do. They’re great teachers. Being around this much joy and happy people, I’ve just gotten that much more motivated.
The communication during my dad’s stay has been so helpful in hearing how his progress has been, from his therapy participation to his medication management.
Never before have I encountered a more patient, can-do, positive response from staff as I have felt here.
