Why inpatient rehabilitation?

Inpatient rehabilitation is for patients who require intensive, interdisciplinary rehabilitation services. Such inpatient programs are designed to improve function and promote each patient's highest degree of independence.

At the Rehabilitation Hospital, clinical teams coordinate medical treatment, specialized services, rehabilitation treatments, and patient-assistance services, all while providing the emotional support and encouragement that patient need to make great strides in recovery. Patients must be able to participate in a minimum of three hours of therapy per day. Depending on the needs of each patient treatment options may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech pathology and more.

Inpatient rehabilitation care is also known as hospital-level, or acute, rehabilitation care. This sophisticated level of care is not available in other settings, such as nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, assisted living centers or extended care centers.

Our 60-bed Rehabilitation Hospital offers the full continuum of rehabilitation services for neurological and orthopedic injuries. After suffering an accident and receiving primary treatment, sometimes you may need help rehabilitating your body, so that life as you know it can go on. The good news is that The Rehabiltaion Hospital specializes in exactly the kind of care you need right here at home.

You might be referred to our Rehabilitation Hospital because your physician believes you could benefit from specialized intense rehabilitation rather than receiving a lower level of care. At The Rehabilitation Hospital, our entire team of specialists work together to create a care plan that caters to your goals and your needs, so that you can get back to what you love most as quickly as possible.


Who is inpatient rehabilitation right for?

Inpatient rehabilitation may be right for you if your injury or illness requires intensive therapy every day to help regain independence and return home.

Lee Health's Rehabilitation Hospital is generally the most suitable setting when you require:

  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Speech-language Pathology

Assessment begins immediately, and service will be provided five days per week. The duration of daily therapy sessions depends upon your tolerance level.
