We provide specialized medical management, nursing and therapy services in a hospital setting. Individual therapy, group treatment and community outings address the patient's functional abilities.

Hip fracture (Proximal)
A hip fracture is a break in the thigh bone just below the hip joint. The hip joint consists of a ball at the top of the thigh bone (femur) and a rounded socket (acetabulum) in the pelvis. Most hip fractures occur in the neck of the femur 1-2 inches below the ball portion of the hip. The goal of rehabilitation following a hip fracture is to get you back on your feet again as quickly as possible while your broken bone heals. For older patients, staying in bed for even several days may lead to serious complications.

Spinal cord injury
A spinal cord injury is a devastating event, both physically and psychologically. In addition to possible paralysis and loss of sensation below the level of injury, a spinal cord injury also impacts many different bodily functions, including circulation, metabolism, temperature regulation, nutritional health, skin, respiration, bowel and bladder elimination, and sexuality. The complexity of spinal cord injuries requires highly specialized skills of a healthcare team trained to manage this kind of injury.
