General Questions

Why does someone need rehabilitative care?
You may need inpatient rehabilitation if you are recovering from conditions such as brain injuries, complex orthopedic injuries and amputations, spinal cord injuries, stroke, etc. that need intensive multi-disciplinary therapy. It can speed your recovery no matter what kind of surgery or condition. Therapists will help you get out of bed and start to walk again. You’ll also do other exercises to get you ready to go home.
What is the difference between a rehab hospital and traditional hospital?

A rehab hospital specializes in providing acute medical rehabilitation for patients who will benefit from an intensive, multidisciplinary rehabilitation program. Patients receive physical, occupational, speech and/or respiratory therapy as needed, and are medically managed by specially trained physicians.

Patients length of stay is longer than that of a traditional hospital. Many patients may be discharged to a rehab hospital for continued rehabilitation needs once their complex medical needs and procedures have been addressed/completed at a traditional hospital.
