Specialty Programs

In addition to our general rehabilitation services, several areas of unique specialization set us apart from other providers in the region.

Stroke Specialty

The Stroke Specialty Rehabilitation Program services adults in need of therapy services to improve their functionality and quality of life. Our patients have been diagnosed with cerebral vascular accidents, other intracranial hemorrhages, and thrombo/embolic strokes.


Our program helps patients with diagnoses such as brain injury, Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injury, and multiple sclerosis. Our dedicated staff will assist you in regaining the skills to walk, communicate and live more independently. We can also treat some patients with cognitive and/or behavioral disabilities.


Our rehabilitation program helps patients recover after hip fractures, joint replacements, and multiple trauma. We strive to always improve our therapy, and our orthopedic program’s innovations have been published in major rehabilitation journals.

Support Groups

Because issues associated with serious disabilities can be physical as well as emotional, we sponsor support groups for patients who have had a brain injury, stroke or spinal cord injury. We also host a family education and orientation group.
