Vanderbilt Rehabilitation Inpatient Services

Vanderbilt Rehabilitation offers two exceptional inpatient units for those requiring rehabilitative care, one at Rhode Island Hospital and one at Newport Hospital.

Both 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.

The Difference with Vanderbilt Rehabilitation

The inpatient rehabilitation units at Rhode Island and Newport hospitals each provide private rooms, designed for patients who require intensive, multidisciplinary rehabilitation programs, including at least three hours of therapy per day, at least five days per week. 

The units each offer skilled nursing, physician-directed therapy programs, and are supported by the broad medical resources of the Lifespan medical staff, with laboratory services, pharmacy, diagnostic imaging on site. 

Each patient’s care plan is individually designed to address the special care needs of the patient, maximize their abilities and minimize dysfunction.
