Moving and Motivating Patients Toward Independence 

The Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit at Garnet Health Medical Center provides state-of-the-art physical and cognitive rehabilitation to adult patients who have had a debilitating illness, acute injury or recent surgery.

Accredited Rehabilitation Facility

Commission on Accreditation for Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF)

Our rehabilitation team's ongoing dedication and commitment have assured the program's conformations to all CARF standards. This accreditation demonstrates an established pattern of practice excellence which has spanned nearly 30 years of service.

Garnet Health Medical Center is dedicated to helping individuals live their lives to the fullest despite impairments caused by trauma, illness, neurological conditions or surgery. We combine a healing environment with individualized care to meet each patient’s unique needs to maximize recovery.

Developing comprehensive, personalized treatment plans that maximize recovery.

From our physical and occupational therapists to our psychiatrists, certified rehab nurses, registered dietitians, speech pathologists and case managers, our rehabilitation team works together to develop a comprehensive plan for each patient with the goal of maximizing your recovery.

Amputee Rehabilitation

Our staff work closely with each patient who has suffered the loss of a limb(s) to help restore strength and confidence and enable them to resume function, mobility and build an independent and rewarding life.

Body Weight & Balance Technology

Our state-of-the-art robotic body weight support system tracks patient movement from above and uses dynamic body-weight support to partially unweight the patient in a “reduced gravity” environment. This prevents falls for patients practicing activities such as walking, balance exercises, sit-to-stand transfers, getting up from the floor, and negotiating stairs during their rehabilitation process. The assistive technology is designed to give patients the peace of mind to focus on improving functional independence without the fear of falling.
