Our acute inpatient rehabilitation hospitals provide specialized physical medicine and rehabilitation to patients recovering from a recent hospitalization or a decline in health in order to regain independence and return safely to their homes.
Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRF) versus Skilled Nursing Facilities and Rehab Centers (SNFs)
There are significant differences in both the type and the outcomes of care provided in an acute rehabilitation hospital versus that provided in a skilled nursing facility and rehabilitation center. Research shows that the amount and type of therapy services, physician oversight and specialized rehabilitation nursing provided in an acute rehabilitation hospital leads to better patient care and outcomes.
The Joint Commission (TJC) has accredited all of our rehabilitation hospitals, demonstrating our commitment to high quality hospital level care. In addition, we are committed to meeting specialized standards for certain programs through TJC’s Disease Specific Certification Programs.
