  • The Inpatient Rehabilitation unit is located inside the John R. Burton Pavilion.

  • The occupational therapy kitchen allows patients to practice daily tasks such as cooking, cleaning, appliance use and laundry. These functional tasks help facilitate neuromuscular rehabilitation by tapping into the desire to return home.

  • The activities of daily living suite allows patients to practice mobility with common household furniture and complete simulated tasks, which aid neuromuscular rehabilitation and tap into the patient’s motivation for returning to their prior baseline.

  • The mirrored motion Bimanual Arm Trainer (BAT) allows for patients recovering from a neurological condition to engage their affected arm in a repetitive and functional motion simulated within a video game environment.

  • Recreational therapy uses the community room's many games and other activities to address the needs of psychological and physical health, recovery and well-being.

  • One of the patient rooms on the 28-bed inpatient rehabilitation unit.

  • Each patient is seen hourly by nursing staff to ensure their health and safety. The inpatient rehabilitation unit has a large multidisciplinary care team to support patients as they achieve their goals.

  • The gym's equipment gives patients opportunities for many activities that assist with improving walking, stair climbing, balance, strength, range of motion, endurance and overall independence.

  • Addressing limitations in ambulation is one of the major focuses during physical therapy sessions. Recumbent bikes address a patient’s endurance, while parallel bars are used early in the rehabilitation of walking when more support is appropriate.

  • This system allows therapists to provide body weight support during ambulation trials and a safety harness during balance training. The device enables the physical therapist to safely increase an activity's intensity and difficulty for an optimal recovery.

  • The recumbent cross trainer is used to improve endurance by allowing patients to safely increase intensity during cardiovascular training and to promote neuromuscular recovery of an affected extremity within a supportive harness attachment.

  • The car simulator allows patients to practice getting in and out of a sedan before returning home. This helps patients with orthopedic restrictions after surgery, limb loss, and conditions affecting balance, range of motion, mobility and strength.

  • The recreational therapy department teams up with physical or occupational therapy to provide seated and/or standing yoga to improve balance, endurance, breathing, confidence, and posture.

  • Three individual speech and language therapy treatment rooms provide a quiet and distraction-free environment to assess, diagnose and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication and swallowing disorders.

  • The Bioness Integrated Therapy System (BITS) is utilized by the therapy team to challenge and assess visuomotor coordination, reaction time, visuospatial perception, visual/auditory processing, working memory, and physical/cognitive endurance.
