Memorial University Medical Center has an award-winning stroke program. After initial emergency treatment to stop the stroke, people may need physical, occupational, and/or speech and language therapy. Our inpatient stroke recovery program provides at least three hours of intensive therapy every day. People admitted to the program must have a physician's referral and be willing and able to actively participate.
The Rehabilitation Institute's stroke 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. We invite you to View our patient outcomes.
