A Team That Puts Patients First
Each patient receives an individualized plan of care and focused attention from experienced board-certified physicians and specially trained staff. A physiatrist, a physician specializing in rehabilitation care, carefully monitors the care and progress of Acute Rehabilitation patients so that they return home with an improved quality of life and so that they, their families, loved ones, and caregivers—can have peace of mind while they recuperate.
