We know that each of our patients has a unique set of personal circumstances. Our team of nursing and rehabilitation professionals work together to set goals and design a treatment program that fits your special needs. Depending on your condition and goals, your personalized team may include:

Your rehab team provides care under the direction of your primary physician, and your primary physician will receive regular updates about your progress. Your family and friends are encouraged to visit and participate in your rehabilitation, as well as attend patient/family conferences about your progress and your at-home care after discharge.
