Inpatient Subacute Rehabilitation

Our Inpatient Rehabilitation Centers offer short-term rehabilitation after surgery, serious injury or illness. We help patients with many different medical needs and conditions, including neuro recovery and treatment following stroke and brain injury; rehabilitation after elective total joint surgery or complex orthopedic surgery; reconditioning following severe illness; post-cardiac and medically complex care; and rehabilitation for general needs.

Is Inpatient Subacute Care What I Need?  Or is it Inpatient Acute?

As specialists in rehabilitation, our program team members are passionately focused on helping every person who comes through our door to improve their overall function and abilities. The entire rehabilitation team works with the person served and their families or support systems to develop a treatment plan that addresses the goals and preferences of each person.

The program serves people with orthopedic and medical diagnoses, ortho-trauma, and neurologic conditions such as ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke, rehabilitation following brain tumor , hypoxic and anoxic brain injury and traumatic brain injury. The average length of stay for all people served is 21 days, however length of stay may be shorter or longer, depending on each persons diagnosis and rate of progress. Please see our Patient Outcomes report for more information.

We are able to safely manage medically complex issues such as:

  1. Tracheotomy care and weaning
  2. Enteral feeding (‘tube feeding’)
  3. Wound care, including vac dressings
  4. Medications
