Post-acute Rehabilitation


Have you or a family member undergone a surgery or been sick requiring a hospitalization? Do you require inpatient therapy and nursing care to assist with your recovery? Our unique Rehab on the River is a comprehensive and interdisciplinary rehab program that provides you the best option for a successful post-surgery recovery in order to return home as soon as possible. Our expert clinical staff includes physicians, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists, dieticians and social workers that are specifically trained in individualized care management to maximize patient outcomes and ensure a smooth transition to home.

“Skilled nursing facilities have seen a tremendous growth in short term rehabilitation admissions due to the growing demand by baby boomers. Nursing facilities are no longer just a destination but rather a stage in the recovery process. No matter if a person is recovering from a stroke, fracture or a prolonged hospitalization, the skilled interventions provided by the care team of physicians, nurses and therapists assists in the recovery process through high quality and compassionate care. Care team members incorporate new technology, in addition to standard medical and rehabilitation approaches, to maximize treatment outcomes in order to reach the highest level of recovery in the shortest period of time.”
