Our primary goal is to return our patients to their highest level of independence through individualized therapy and community re-integration. Our highly experienced rehabilitation staff participates in extensive continuing education to assure that patients receive the most advance rehabilitation treatment.
Our team encourages family involvement throughout the therapeutic process, because we recognize that family education, therapeutic training and emotional support are essential components of your recovery. Members of the rehabilitation team meet with you and your significant others throughout the course of treatment to review your progress and discharge plans.
