Stroke Rehabilitation Programs

Making a Comeback

For many stroke survivors, rehabilitation is a very important part of the recovery process. Studies indicate that 60 percent of stroke survivors can benefit from aggressive rehabilitation intervention, with 80 percent of those treated through rehabilitation services returning to their homes, work, schools or active retirement*

The effects of stroke may cause you to change, relearn or redefine how you live. Stroke rehabilitation is designed to help you adjust to these mental and physical challenges and return to independent living.

In recently conducted independent studies**, HealthSouth Hospitals met or exceeded national averages for functional outcomes and was typically lower than other healthcare providers for length of stay and charges. HealthSouth also exceeded national averages for patient satisfaction. Our intensive rehabilitation programs get patients better faster, translating to higher overall outcomes and cost savings.

Our internal case managers ensure these cost-effective outcomes by working closely with the patient, family, referring physician, payor and other parties to make sure everyone remains informed about the patient's care and progress.

At HealthSouth Hospitals, we offer specialized rehabilitative care across a wide array of diagnoses. Our hospitals differ from traditional inpatient facilities, such as nursing homes, in that we track out outcomes, insist on a pristine environment and offer an intensive approach to rehabilitation, supervised by a physician. It's this approach that allows us to achieve superior outcomes.
