Short Term Rehab Program

We have on-site physical and occupational therapists and speech pathologists dedicated to bringing the latest advances to our patients.

Our Speech Pathologist incorporates swallowing, language and cognitive procedures to meet the needs of our patients. Patients may receive rehab services 5-6 days per week depending on the treatment order.
