At Johns Hopkins, we provide care for all kinds of patients, some with medically complex and disabling conditions, including but not limited to stroke, spinal cord injury/dysfunction, heart surgery, amputation, orthopaedic injury or surgery and cancer. Our commitment to patient care coupled with our cutting-edge research make us the destination of choice for your physical medicine and rehabilitation needs.
Our mission is to bring quality to the lives of patients with physical limitations. Our treatment team focuses on your capabilities - what you can do - rather than your disabilities. This positive approach allows our rehabilitation team to help restore function and return patients to their highest levels of independence.
Our commitment is to:
- Provide superb medical care
- Restore mobility, self-care, bowel and bladder function, swallowing, communication and psychosocial abilities
- Educate patients and family members
- Promote preventive aspects of health care
- Plan for post-hospital care and return to the home community
What to expect
Our Comprehensive Inpatient Integrated Rehabilitation Programs (CIIRP) are CARF-accredited, offering the highest quality of inpatient rehabilitation services. If you and your doctor decide that your needs can best be met during a stay at the hospital, you will enjoy our home-like setting, allowing you the freedom to perform your own care with the guidance of our team of experts including therapists, social workers, rehabilitation nurses, psychologists, dieticians, orthotists, and physicians.
Services in our inpatient rehabilitation centers include:
- Daily team conferences to review progress and goals
- Patient/family conferences to discuss ongoing needs and answer questions
- Family/caregiver training to prepare those caring for you when you return home
Our team works with every patient to create a care plan that identifies the patient’s abilities and needs and ensures that the patient’s goals and concerns are addressed. We encourage family and friends to be involves in the patient’s care. Our nurses and therapists take time to make sure that patients and caregivers understand and are comfortable with their roles before leaving the hospital.
The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation provides inpatient therapy for adults at the Johns Hopkins Hospital, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, and the MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital. In addition, we provide inpatient rehabilitation for children at the Kennedy Krieger Institute.
