Experience Our Inpatient Rehabilitation Team Approach
Rehabilitation (or acute medical rehabilitation) refers to specialized healthcare dedicated to improving, maintaining or restoring physical strength, function, cognition and mobility. The goal of rehabilitation is to return patients to a more independent level of activity. Typically, rehabilitation helps people gain greater independence following illness, injury or surgery.
One important key to success in rehabilitation therapy is our hospital’s team approach. Rehabilitation works best with a diverse team of experts, working together. Each brings special expertise to the table. And the whole is greater than the sum of parts. Each team member complements the rest. They work in concert to develop a treatment plan for physical, cognitive and emotional needs. Team members include:
- Case Manager
- Dietary and Nutritional Counseling
- Occupational Therapy
- Physical Therapy
- Rehabilitation Physician
- Rehabilitative Nursing
- Respiratory Therapy
- Social Worker
- Speech-language Pathology
