Healthcare Services and Programs

Some patients who complete the acute phase of recovery will need to continue more intensive therapy and education during an Inpatient Rehabilitation hospital stay. Admission to an Inpatient Rehabilitation hospital connects patients and their caregivers to a team of rehabilitation specialists that provides a daily plan specifically designed to promote the highest level of independence possible.

Inpatient Rehabilitation at OhioHealth

Patients who participate in rehabilitation while inside the hospital have the benefit of seeing various rehabilitation specialists throughout the day. The on-site staff and physical, occupational, speech and recreational therapists can work daily with patients according to their individualized therapy plans. The custom-designed Inpatient unit offers a wide range of equipment — including several home life settings — to help patients reach their physical and cognitive goals.

OhioHealth Inpatient Rehabilitation units attract patients from central Ohio and the surrounding area. Patients may be admitted from a hospital, skilled nursing facility or from home. A referral from a patient's medical team is needed for admission. Many insurance plans will cover an Inpatient Rehabilitation stay at OhioHealth. Learn more about accepted insurance plans

Inpatient Rehabilitation services are often geared to patients with diagnoses of:

  • Stroke
  • Head injury or brain surgery
  • Bone and joint trauma
  • Spinal trauma or neurological disorders

An individualized plan of care is created for each patient participating in Inpatient Rehabilitation. Each patient's pathway is designed to maximize functional independence and reduce the risk of future health problems.
