Acute Rehabilitation Hospital

If you or a loved one requires therapy following an injury, surgery, stroke or other life-changing trauma, your top priority is regaining the highest level of independence possible. At the Acute Rehabilitation Hospital at St. Luke’s Medical Center, we share this same priority and provide quality rehabilitation services designed to help you or your loved one regain as much independence as possible.

Our 16-bed facility offers a distinctly different level of patient-focused care on an inpatient basis — 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Complete with a security entrance, dining room and enclosed exterior patio, our facilities are designed with your safety and comfort in mind.

Our experienced therapists, specialists and certified rehabilitation registered nurses, bilingual in English and Spanish, are committed to quality care and provide patients with at least three hours of individualized therapy every day. Your physician can also check on you at any time and collaborate with our team on an individualized plan for more effective outcomes.


Individualized Therapy for Maximized Patient Potential
The Acute Rehabilitation Hospital at St. Luke’s Medical Center is dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals (18 years and older) with stroke, traumatic and non-traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, neurological disorders, orthopaedic conditions and other life-changing, debilitating conditions. Our rehabilitation specialists strive for the highest level of mobility and independence possible for each patient by collaborating on an individualized treatment plan that incorporates the latest medical innovations. At the Acute Rehabilitation Hospital at St. Luke’s Medical Center, we offer the following specialized services:

  • Aquatic Therapy
    The Acute Rehabilitation Hospital offers a unique aquatic therapy program to help you control body movements in ways not possible on land. Experienced therapists take a hands-on approach by joining you in our 18 ft. x 24 ft. pool — which accommodates various heights and abilities — for more effective, more accurate rehabilitation and training. The 92-96 degree water’s buoyancy reduces the stress on joints and eases discomfort during exercise to help you realize improved physical function, muscle tone, balance and cardiovascular performance.
  • Neurological Rehabilitation
    The Acute Rehabilitation Hospital provides the earliest possible start to rehabilitation for patients with compromised or lost functions due to neurological disorders. Following a thorough evaluation, our therapists work with you on a comprehensive treatment plan that may include a variety of occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, VitalStim® dysphagia program, neuropsychology services and other therapy services. You’ll receive the utmost respect and care on your journey to regaining as much language, memory, problem solving, cognitive functions and physical mobility as possible.
  • Multi-trauma Rehabilitation
    Motor vehicle accidents, falls and other traumas frequently cause multiple catastrophic injuries that can immobilize patients for extended periods. With an interdisciplinary team of specialists, the Acute Rehabilitation Hospital offers integrated rehabilitation therapy to treat these injuries in a holistic manner. Starting with a collaborative rehabilitation plan in the critical period following medical stability, we work closely with you to treat every affected system in a manner that promotes optimal outcomes. When your treatment is completed, we also offer planning, education, outpatient therapy and other resources to ease the transition for you and your family to daily activities at home and in the community.
