After an accident or illness, some patients need intensive therapy. Inpatient Rehabilitation is where the greatest gains in recovery are seen in the shortest time.
Our mission is to provide rehabilitation services to patients who have difficulty caring for themselves but desire to return to the community and live as independently as possible. We firmly believe in a team approach to care, which involves patients, family members or caregivers and health care providers.
