In addition to post-acute care, we offer outpatient rehabilitation services to help patients transition to home and community or receive the medical care they need.

The Acute (Inpatient) Rehabilitation facility at Knox Community Hospital helps patients experiencing a loss of function from injury or illness to become as independent as possible regarding activities of daily living so that they may return home and resume daily activities.

Licensed rehabilitation professionals patiently teach patients to maximize function based on their abilities and needs.

Patients in therapy can regain the ability to walk after a fall or amputation, talk following a stroke, or re-learn personal hygiene after a serious illness.
