Our speech-language pathologists help patients overcome communication disorders, speech challenges and swallowing problems.
Our dietary and nutritional counselors oversee each patient’s meals to make sure they receive the proper nutrition during and after treatment.
Our case managers coordinate care plans with our clinical teams, patients and loved ones to ensure all needs are met and any questions are answered.
We are focused on two things: the progress our patients make and the outcomes they achieve. You can see it in our industry-leading performance scores.
As soon as you arrive, we will measure how much help you need to perform basic skills – this is called your Functional Outcome Measures. Your rehabilitation team reviews these with you and sets challenging but attainable goals. They then design a personalized treatment plan to help you meet your specific goals. Before you leave our hospital, we will see how much you’ve improved, how well you have met your goals, and give you the materials and training you need to continue your progress at home.
After a stroke or other life-changing illness, your doctor may recommend rehabilitation. Your choice of provider can make a big difference in your journey to recovery.
