Personalized Care

The Inpatient Rehab Center is an eight-bed unit located within the hospital and offers convenient access to other hospital services if you need medical treatment during your stay. It's the only local facility to feature all-private patient rooms and one-on-one therapy, giving patients more personalized care and attention than other larger facilities provide. The unit also features a daily living activity area and therapy gym, all located on one floor.

We offer therapeutic services that may be used based on your rehabilitation goals and needs, including family education and training, home evaluations for accessibility issues, meditation and mindfulness, pet therapy, and adaptive yoga.
