Inpatient Rehabilitation

  • nurse assisting patient with paperworkThe inpatient program at The Rehabilitation Institute at Memorial University Medical Center is for people who require hospitalization while recovering from stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury, arthritis, orthopaedic trauma, cardiac limitations, chronic pain, or other disabilities.

    We begin providing therapy services while the patient is still hospitalized at Memorial University Medical Center. Our belief is that early intervention, beginning in the intensive care unit or on an acute-care floor, is crucial to ensuring the best possible outcome. The Rehabilitation Institute has an acute-care team of therapists who focus on this early rehabilitation process.

    The Rehabilitation Institute's inpatient program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). This accreditation ensures our ongoing commitment to quality and patient safety and our focus on patient satisfaction.

    Rehabilitation is an active process that requires hard work, patience, and determination. Patients participate in three to five hours of therapy daily. A physician must agree that the patient is physically able to perform this level of comprehensive rehabilitation prior to admission. In addition to all of the hard work, we provide educational and social activities and enjoy occasional community outings. Our highly trained team cares for, teaches, advises, supports, and encourages people to reach their highest possible level of independence.

    Family members are active participants in the rehabilitation process and learn how to care for the patient after discharge from the rehabilitation unit. Learn more about our patient and family centered care philosophy.

    Together, the treatment team, patient, and family discuss the care plan, determine goals, set a potential discharge date, and work to ensure that the patient’s specific needs are met.
