At Baptist Health South Florida, we offer both inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation care to get you back on your feet and back to doing the things you love.

If you need rehabilitation from an injury or after a hospitalization, the highly trained team of physical medicine doctors and rehabilitation specialists at Baptist Health South Florida offer you a comprehensive choice in treatment options.

If you need testing or additional care during your rehabilitation stay, you have easy access to Baptist Health South Florida’s specialists.

Our Approach

Our Approach

Our team approach ensures that everyone is working together toward the same goal – an enhanced quality of life and more independence for you. As an inpatient, you will have a team that meets regularly to discuss your treatment goals, reviews your progress, revises your treatment plans when necessary, and decides when it’s time for you to leave the hospital.

The nurses at our inpatient facility are recognized for their nursing excellence and are certified rehabilitation nurses. The 23-bed unit is certified by the Commission for the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities with subspecialty certifications in Stroke Rehabilitation, Brain Injury Rehabilitation and Cancer Rehabilitation.
