Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation

The Rehabilitation Centers of Penn Highlands Healthcare are licensed inpatient rehabilitation hospitals in the northwestern and southwestern regions of Penn Highlands Healthcare system. Our superior patient outcomes, award-winning services, and consistently high patient satisfaction ratings are a point of pride among our staff and our community.

Our acute inpatient rehabilitation program uses a multi-disciplinary approach to help you recover from surgery, traumatic injury, or a debilitating disease. Your attending physician specializes in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and will oversee your treatment. Other team members include our dedicated staff of nurses, physical and occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists, and other specialists as needed.

We are committed to helping you regain the highest degree of functional mobility, independence, and quality of life possible. We do this by tailoring an inpatient therapy program to meet your specific needs and abilities, and partnering with you to achieve your goals.

Inpatient Rehab Vs. Outpatient

Our inpatient rehabilitation program means you will stay here for the duration of your treatment. This allows for intensive therapy and comprehensive care as you work with physical therapists and other health professionals a minimum of three hours each day. Your treatment program takes place in a safe, supervised, medically monitored environment.

In an inpatient rehab program, expect to stay for a few days up to a month or more, depending on your needs. When you are ready, we can help you find a conveniently located outpatient rehab program so you can continue your recovery if needed.

You do not stay on site during outpatient rehabilitation therapy, and will need to travel to a clinic or other facility to receive services. Physical therapy appointments usually occur two to three times per week for 30 minutes to an hour for each session. You may need to schedule separate appointments for each type of therapy needed.

Outpatient rehab programs typically last for several weeks up to several months.

Admission Criteria for Inpatient Rehabilitation Services

To be admitted to our inpatient physical therapy and rehabilitation program, you must meet certain guidelines.

  • Have a qualifying diagnosis.
  • Require multiple therapy disciplines, including either physical therapy or speech therapy.
  • Be motivated and able to tolerate at least three hours of therapy per day, five days a week.
  • Be referred by a medical professional who believes you can improve and return to your prior level of functional status.
