Good Shepherd Medical Center’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit strives to assist patients in maximizing their independence while returning to normal life following an illness or injury.
Good Shepherd Medical Center’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Services are accredited by the Commission for the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). CARF Accreditation is a symbol of our facility’s commitment to the highest quality rehabilitative services and patient outcomes.
At Good Shepherd, patients, family members, and the rehabilitation staff are partners in determining treatment goals and achieving skill development.
We treat patients with illness or injury including:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Lower extremity fracture
- Joint replacement
- Cardiac surgery
The mission is to provide a comprehensive rehabilitation program of the highest quality in order to improve the functional independence of those we serve.
Our staff consists of:
- Therapists specially trained in neurodevelopmental techniques that help patients following a stroke and other neurological injuries.
- Acute care nurses with rehabilitation specific training and skills to care for higher acuity patients.
Convenience for Patients and Families.
The Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit is located on the second floor of the Medical Center’s East Tower. The unit consists of 25 private patient rooms and one deluxe suite in addition to a private dining area for patients, and outdoor patio, Activities of Daily Living apartment and a gym where physical, occupational and speech therapies take place.
Because the unit is located within the Medical Center, the patient’s physician, along with the unit’s physiatrist, can provide one-on-one care until the patient reaches his or her goals.
