Programs and Conditions

Superior outcomes

We are focused on two things: the progress our patients make and the outcomes they achieve. This is evidenced by our industry-leading performance scores.

We want you to get better, and to make that happen, we need to know where you began. Upon arrival at one of our hospitals, we will measure how much help you need to perform basic skills – this is called your FIM® score. Your rehabilitation team will review your FIM® score with you, set challenging but attainable goals, and design a treatment plan to help you meet your specific goals. Before your leave the hospital, we will rescore your FIM® assessment to see how much you’ve improved, determine how well you have met your goals, and provide you the materials and training you need to continue your progress after you leave the hospital.
