Inpatient Rehabilitation Services

Lifespan rehabilitation services include two exceptional inpatient units for those requiring acute rehabilitative care: the inpatient unit at the Vanderbilt Rehabilitation Center at Newport Hospital, and the Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit at Rhode Island Hospital.

These units provide intensive rehabilitative therapy for patients recovering from serious conditions, including:

  • Neurological
  • Cardiac
  • Orthopedic and traumatic injuries
  • Amputation
  • Burn injuries
  • Other serious medical illness

The goal of rehabilitation is to help patients regain lost function so they can live as independently as possible. This could include regaining skills necessary for daily activities; maximizing muscle control and strength; improving balance and mobility, the ability to swallow or eat, speech and communication skills; and minimizing discomfort and cognitive deficits.

Members of the patient’s clinical team participate in the patient’s care throughout treatment, rehabilitation and recovery.

The rehabilitation process is fully integrated into each patient’s total care plan, and therapists work closely with the patient’s physicians.
