Your rehabilitation program at our inpatient Rehabilitation Center will include three hours of daily therapy to help you recover as much function and movement as possible. Your family member or caregiver also will receive training to help after you leave the hospital.

You and your care team may choose outpatient physical, occupational or speech therapy as the first treatment option for your injury, illness, or condition.
