    • Comprehensive Integrated Inpatient Rehabilitation Program
    • Amputation Specialty Program
    • Brain Injury Specialty Program
    • Stroke Specialty Program

    Quality Outcomes

    All hospitals collect and analyze data to allow for continuous performance improvement and program development. The Joint Commission and CARF require the collection and reporting of various data which allows for certification. We share this information with the patients, family members and referral sources to further educate them about our hospital. It allows them to make an appropriate choice in selecting a hospital for their rehabilitation needs.

    *RIC – Rehabilitation impairment category

    **FIMFunctional independence measure: A standard assessment tool, used by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) for Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospitals, that measures both the overall and specific improvement in activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, feeding, walking and mobility from the time of admission to discharge. We are proud that our patients’ scores generally exceed national benchmarks.
