The inpatient rehabilitation contains a gym, a dining area and a mock living area to help patients transition from the hospital to living at home again. Occupational, physical and speech therapy are all available. Patients who need rehab to relearn work skills undergo work conditioning rehabilitation. Outpatient rehab is also available.
