Acute Rehabilitation Unit

At Montrose Memorial Hospital, we are dedicated to helping patients get past the hurdles and back to their lives, returning to work, family, active retirement or independent living.

The Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit implements a team approach, offering physical, occupational, speech and recreational therapies, social workers and 24 hour rehabilitation nursing care under the direction of a medical director who specializes in  and rehabilitation.

Other special services such as psychology and prosthesis training are available based on the needs of each patient.

The unit offers comfortable, spacious rooms designed to maximize each patient's rehabilitation potential.  Therapy areas are conveniently located within the unit.

The events that bring patients to us change their lives forever. We work closely with every patient to help them regain all that they can to resume functional daily living.

Our patients will work hard, but the effort will be worth it. We keep our patients focused on their recovery goals.

Because each person is unique, our dedicated team individualizes every patient's care, taking into consideration that everyone has different needs and progresses at a different pace.

Rehabilitation greatly benefits patients who experience difficulties in the following areas:

  • Impaired mobility, balance and coordination mobility, balance and coordination
  • Limitations in self-care
  • Limitations in joint strength and motion
  • Changes in memory, thought processing, reasoning and rational thinking
  • Speech and communication problems
  • Swallowing disorders

These functional difficulties may be the result of a stroke, hip fracture, some form of arthritis, amputation, neurological disorder, major multiple trauma, spinal cord injury and brain injury.

Our goal, at Montrose Memorial Hospital, is to help patients get back to life, family and friends as quickly as possible.  Working with each patient and their family, the rehabilitation team designs a highly individualized treatment plan that focuses on potential, not on limitations.  This progressive approach strives to meet the needs of the patient and their family involved in the rehabilitation process.

Referrals to the unit can be made by physicians, patients, patient's families, discharge planners and allied health professionals.
