An Interdisciplinary Approach to Rehabilitative Care

Acute RehabEach patient’s care team establishes a personalized, flexible treatment program that reflects the patient’s unique treatment needs and health goals. Depending on the patient’s requirements, a care team may include:

  • Dietitians
  • Pharmacists
  • Physiatrists
  • Psychologists/neuropsychologists
  • Registered nurses
  • Physical, occupational and speech therapists
