About Acute InPatient Rehabilitation
Acute inpatient rehabilitation consists of a 14-bed unit located within Southwestern Medical Center. We offer custom, expert rehabilitative care to each patient. Depending on the difficulty of a patient’s recovery, we will address activity limitations by helping patients develop new skills and re-learning previous skills they are now unable to perform. We will work as a team with the patient, family/support system and interdisciplinary team to help each patient make the life changes needed during the rehabilitation process. Coordination of these efforts leads to the highest possible rehabilitation outcomes attainable by each patient, limiting participation restrictions. This high level of care requires an individualized and holistic approach which we are prepared to meet for each patient.
Scope Of Services
Comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation services are provided to any adult patient age 18 or older with neurological, orthopedic and/or other medical conditions. Conditions may be those with a sudden onset or a chronic, regressing condition. We can help improve the quality of life of patients who have experienced a loss of function in activities of daily living, mobility, cognition, or communication. We work closely with patients and their families to ensure a smooth transition from the time of admission until discharge. We will help you get back home or find a more appropriate placement if necessary.
The rehabilitation program serves patients with a variety of medical, physical and functional needs. Some of the conditions treated in the program are:
Spinal Cord Injury
Traumatic Brain Injury
Joint Replacement Surgery
Cardiac or Pulmonary Disorders
Progressive or Degenerative Neurological Disorders
The amount of nerve damage affects the severity of symptoms. Some people with severe MS may lose the ability to walk independently or at all.
