This results in the best outcomes and the fastest recovery for each patient.

Upon completion of the inpatient rehabilitation program, most people are able to perform day-to-day tasks and can return home. Regionally and nationally, our program continues to discharge more patients to their homes than to other facilities.

Visiting hours

The support of family and friends is important for patients' recovery and well-being. Visitors may attend therapy sessions with patients. Family and caregivers are encouraged to participate in treatment and therapy sessions to learn more about their loved one's care routine.

Patient discharge information

When you have completed your rehabilitation program, we will coordinate your discharge from the hospital. Here's what you can expect from our team:

  • We will arrange for any follow-up care and equipment you may need.
  • We will help make arrangements to provide any additional resources you may need.
  • We will address any concerns or questions you may have as you prepare to leave.
