Rehabilitation aims to restore physical, sensory and mental capabilities, which patients have lost due to injury, illness or disease. We tailor each rehabilitation program to the individual patient's needs with physical, occupational and/or speech therapy.

Our care team helps patients optimize their independence and quality of life through efficient, high-quality, evidence-based and patient-centered rehabilitation. Patients and their families are actively involved in their recovery.

In addition to our physical therapy clinics for outpatients, we work in the hospital setting to prepare patients for returning home or moving on to the next level of care. We also help run the Early ICU Mobilization and Acute Care for Elders programs.
