A rehabilitation hospital is a licensed inpatient facility devoted to the recovery of patients with various neurologic, musculoskeletal, orthopaedic and other medical conditions following stabilization of their acute medical issues. Patients, who are not ready to go home, are usually discharged directly from an acute care hospital to a rehabilitation hospital. Rehabilitation care consists of medical, social, educational, and vocational services. A comprehensive rehabilitation program is designed to help individuals with a disability achieve the highest possible functional ability. All care is provided by a team of health care professionals and under the supervision of a staff of physicians and nurses.
