Our staff cares for patients with cerebral vascular injuries, brain and spinal cord injuries, neurological diseases, knee and hip replacements, arthritis, medically complex burns, organ transplants, cancer or renal failure.
The Rehab Unit is housed in a new four-story facility on the southwest corner of 39th Street and Rainbow Boulevard. The facility's second floor offers brand new space for the hospital's Inpatient Acute Rehabilitation Facility and also offers patients and staff improved environment, services and equipment. The facility has more than doubled its current space and offers a wide range of patient amenities, including a larger gym, large showers in each room to accommodate shower benches and shower-chairs, and a kitchen and laundry to help patients prepare for self-care at home.
