Each patient’s treatment team will be led by a physician who specializes in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and will be uniquely tailored to meet their specific needs. A treatment team will be comprised of a combination of the following specialists: Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Pathologists, Clinical Dietitians, Neuropsychologists, and Rehabilitation Nurses. Each patient also has a personal Case Manager assigned to them that coordinates the patient’s rehabilitative program from admission to discharge.
Rehabilitation should be carried out only by qualified physicians and therapists. Exercises and other physical interventions must take into account the patient’s specific diagnosis and physical abilities. It is very important that you research your rehabilitation provider. Only Acute Rehabilitation Hospitals must provide a minimum of 3 hours of therapy 5 out of 7 days per week according to Medicare guidelines; all others have no minimum requirement and usually provide much less. Acute Rehabilitation providers are considered highly specialized when it comes to getting individuals back home and functioning within the community.
We have a partnership with Texas Health, Methodist Healthcare and Kindred Healthcare that helps us to provide improved clinical outcomes and a higher quality of care, resulting in the best rehabilitation service for the needs of our patients and the community.
