Outpatient rehabilitation services are provided through most of our rehabilitation hospitals located in Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Indiana, New Mexico, South Carolina, Texas, Utah and Wyoming. Our outpatient centers are designed to provide rehabilitation services to patients who are no longer required to be in the hospital, but still need physical, occupational and/or speech therapy to help them continue to recover fully.
Outpatient Rehabilitation Services
We provide outpatient rehabilitation services to those recovering from disabling diseases and injuries, such as orthopedic injuries, strokes, brain and spinal cord injuries. We also treat individuals who may have chronic illnesses such as cerebral palsy, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), multiple sclerosis or Parkinson’s disease.
Our medical professionals work as a team with our outpatients and their family members to create individualized treatment plans so our patients can continue to progress at their own ability levels after leaving the hospital. Our medical team includes specially trained physicians, nurses, occupational, speech and physical therapists – among other medical professionals.
Some of the features of our outpatient programs at our hospitals include:
- Spacious, well-equipped therapy gyms
- Warm water pools for aquatic therapy
- Outdoor therapeutic courtyards
- Activities of Daily Living Suites with a fully functional kitchen, laundry and computer work station
In addition to our outpatient services
Many of our hospitals offer support groups for patients and caregivers to expand treatment and to allow those with common challenges to share experiences, explore resources, encourage one another, and to help teach each other how best to navigate their circumstances.
