Excellence in Care: Acute Rehabilitation Unit

Acute Rehab patient

St. Anthony’s dedicated 49-bed Acute Rehabilitation Unit is nationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). CARF evaluates programs for multidisciplinary, comprehensive rehabilitative care and excellent outcomes. Since 2005, the Acute Rehabilitation Unit has been awarded “exemplary status” by CARF for its innovative rehabilitation services.
This inpatient unit has board-certified rehabilitation specialists and is designed to assist patients who have recovered from the acute phase of an illness or injury but still need 24-hour physician management and nursing care in addition to rehabilitation services.
Patients who may benefit from acute rehabilitation services include those with a spinal cord injury, complex fracture, stroke or other neurological impairments, multi-injury accident, amputation and head injury.
