Inpatient Rehab Programs

Our inpatient rehabilitation team is comprised of highly trained professionals that work together to carefully evaluate and treat each individual's needs. Below are the specialized programs offered through inpatient rehab.

The Stroke Program provides an interdisciplinary team approach in the care of patients who have experienced a stroke.

Indications for admission include:

  • Hemiparesis/hemiplegia, monoparesis, or triparesis.
  • Perceptual deficits or visual field deficits.
  • Aphasia or other language or speech deficits.
  • Cognitive or perceptual motor deficits.
  • Complications of a CVA, including skin ulcers, spasticity, recurrent or persistent pain, bowel and bladder dysfunction, emotional decompensation, contractures, nutritional needs/dysphagia, loss of previous functional mobility or self-care ability.
  • Functional deficits
The Brain Injury Program emphasizes cognitive/perceptual motor, physical, and functional psychosocial rehabilitation of individuals with brain injury, post-craniotomy deficits or vascular insults that result in cognitive/perceptual motor deficits.

Indications for admission include:

  • Hemiparesis/hemiplegia, monoparesis, or triparesis.
  • Cognitive/perceptual motor deficits or visual field deficits.
  • Language and/or speech deficits.
  • Spasticity or increased tone.
  • Complications including skin ulcers, recurrent or persistent pain, bowel and bladder dysfunction, nutritional needs / dysphagia, loss of previous functional mobility or self-care ability.
  • Functional deficits
The Neurological Program serves patients with a variety of neurological disorders which may include; Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Guillain-Barre, motor neuron diseases, polyneuropathy, radiculopathy, Muscular Dystrophy, and Myasthenia Gravis, etc.

Indications for admission include:

  • Weakness
  • Ataxia
  • Spasticity
  • Visual disturbances and/or sensory deficits
  • Bladder dysfunction
  • Emotional decomposition
  • Skin ulcers
  • Recurrent or persistent pain
  • Functional deficit
The Spinal Cord Program is designed to meet the needs of individuals who have sustained deficits related to damage to the spinal cord.

Indications for admission include:

  • Level of injury C5 or below
  • Paraparesis, quadraparesis, paraplegia, or quadraplegia
  • Brown-Sequard's syndrome
  • Complications from Spinal Cord Injury including skin ulcers, spasticity, bowel and bladder dysfunction, recurrent or persistent pain, emotional decompensation, infections, contracture, and heterotopic bone formation.
The Amputee Program addresses pre-prosthetic, prosthetic, and post-prosthetic needs of patients with amputations.

Indication for admission include:

  • Amputation of the upper or lower extremities.
  • Difficulty ambulating with or without prosthesis.
  • Complications from amputations including contractures, peripheral nerve lesions, intractable pain, skin ulcers, and unhealed residual limb.
The Orthopedic Program provides rehabilitation services to patients who have had orthopedic surgical procedures, sustained orthopedic trauma, or those who experience chronic conditions such as osteoporosis or stress fractures that create significant impairment in functional ability.

Indications for admission include:

  • Difficulty with functional mobility, ambulation, transfers, strength, pain that impacts functional skills, weight bearing, and/or balance issues.
  • Single & bilateral total joint replacement patients who meet the specific criteria
  • Hip fractures with co-morbities
  • Orthopedic trauma, upper extremity/ lower extremity fractures, or fractures of the spine
The Arthritis Program is designed for patients with arthritic conditions such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis that impair ambulation and/or self-care skills.

Implications for admission include:

  • Contractures, joint deformities, skin ulcer, anemia, peripheral neuropathy, renal involvement, gastrointestinal involvement, hypercorticoidism, or recurrent or persistent pain that interferes with independent living skills.
  • Difficulty in performing activities of daily living, functional mobility, ambulation, transfers, and/or balance issues.
The oncology program is designed for patients with a primary diagnosis of cancer whose treatment course has impaired their functional abilities. The goal of rehabilitation for patients with cancer is to improve the quality of life for maximum productivity with minimum dependence, regardless of life expectancy. As treatment advances lead to increased survival for patients with cancer, rehabilitation has become an important aspect of their continuum of care.

Implications for admission include:

  • Types of cases include radiation enteritis, nutritionally compromised, general deconditioning, corticosteroid-induced myopathy and osteoporosis, peripheral neuropathies and parenthesis, skin ulcerations, lymphedema, pulmonary fibrosis, and shoulder dysfunction as a result of modified radical neck procedure.
  • Difficulty in performing activities of daily living, with functional mobility, ambulation, transfers, and/or balance issues. grams
