Considering Inpatient Rehabilitation for Your Patient
The intensity and availability of therapeutic services provided through inpatient rehabilitation result in a higher level of functional outcomes and discharges to the community. In fact, patients admitted to a rehabilitation hospital are three times more likely to go home than those admitted to a skilled nursing facility.
Our hospital offers the most advanced treatments and rehabilitation technology for a more comprehensive rehabilitation program. We provide our referring physicians and case managers with updates on the patient’s progress as they continue rehabilitation programs.
As a healthcare provider, you want your patients to receive the best care possible. Becoming part of a comprehensive rehabilitation program can make all the difference in how quickly your patients can return home following an illness or injury. There are many advantages to choosing an acute rehabilitation hospital – like ours – for your patients.
