Inpatient Rehabilitation

About Our Service

At Spectrum Health, we have two levels of inpatient rehabilitation: acute and subacute, as well as our Special Care Hospital. Our expert team will guide you to the appropriate level of care based on your individual rehabilitation needs.

The Inpatient Rehabilitation Center at Blodgett Hospital provides acute rehabilitation for patients who have both therapy and medical needs and require daily oversight by a physical medicine and rehabilitation physician. Because of the intensity of rehabilitation at this facility, your physician and case manager will determine if this is the level of care you need.

Our five Rehab and Nursing Centers provide subacute rehabilitation for patients who are unable to return home safely after hospitalization and are unable to tolerate the intensity of rehab required at the acute level. Patients also require less physician oversight at this level of care. 

Each of our facilities has its own unique style and varying specialties but our mission is the same: to help you achieve your goals and return to the activities you enjoy. 

Our therapy programs are designed to:

• Create independence with daily living activities, such as bathing, dressing, grooming and meal preparation
• Improve your safety and confidence with physical mobility, including walking, moving between surfaces and using a wheelchair or walking device
• Build strength, balance, coordination and endurance through physical conditioning activities
• Restore and refine memory, problem-solving, decision-making and verbal/non-verbal communication through specialized technology and exercises

We have the tools and expertise you need to help you recover. You'll find state-of-the-art technology, therapeutic gardens and a large rehabilitation gym. We also have low-stimulation spaces for those who are sensitive to noise and activity. Our fully furnished Activities of Daily Living apartments and spaces allow you to practice your newly learned skills prior to returning home or to the community.

Features of Inpatient Rehabilitation

  • Brain Injury Rehabilitation

    Brain injuries and concussions are usually the result of sports-related injuries, auto accidents and falls. An injury to the head can cause lingering and life-changing symptoms. Spectrum Health Rehabilitation has a complete continuum of care for those living with a brain injury.
  • Cancer Rehabilitation

    Our program helps cancer survivors physically and emotionally heal from the side-effects of treatments. Our team includes physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, nurses, social workers and physicians.

  • Cardiovascular Transitions

    Fred and Lena Meijer Heart Center and Spectrum Health Rehabilitation have partnered to provide a cardiac specialty program for patients suffering from congestive heart failure, acute coronary syndrome and other heart and vascular conditions.

    Our Joint Success program provides customized care to patients recovering from total knee or hip replacement surgery. Our program is centered on evidence-based techniques to help you achieve the greatest recovery possible at each level of care.

  • Limb Amputation Rehabilitation

    Limb loss is a traumatic injury physically, psychologically and socially. Our comprehensive program is designed to address these issues and more.

  • Music Therapy

    Our music therapy program helps reduce stress, speed healing and assist with improving coordination and balance. Music therapy is used in many settings including inpatient rehabilitation, long-term care and Spectrum Health At Home.

  • Occupational Therapy

    Our occupational therapy focuses on the evaluation and treatment of range of motion, muscle tone, movement, sensation, vision and perception. This treatment promotes independence by working to improve skills you use every day.

  • Physical Therapy

    Often physical therapy is part of your post-surgery recovery plan. Physical therapy is also used to prevent and relieve pain from many conditions, whether neurological or sports-related. Work with our physical therapists to restore strength and a healthy lifestyle.

  • Speech Therapy

    Our speech language pathologists, or speech therapists, help you convey your wants and needs when it’s difficult to speak, listen, read, write and swallow. We’ll help develop strategies and alternative ways of communication specific to your care needs.

  • Special Care Hospital

    Some patients need a longer acute care stay due to multiple injuries, trauma or medical complications. These unique medical and rehabilitative needs require a specialized setting for optimal recovery. Our Special Care Hospital is the only West Michigan long-term acute care facility (LTACH) that serves patients with complex needs requiring longer hospital stays and highly specialized care.

  • Stroke Rehabilitation

    Our stroke rehabilitation program is focused on helping you overcome stroke-related disabilities and relearn basic skills, such as talking, eating, dressing and walking.
