A rehabilitation center is an outpatient facility devoted to the recovery of children and adults with disabilities and other special needs following discharge from an acute care (inpatient) hospital. Rehabilitation centers provide a variety of outpatient medical services, such as physical, occupational, and speech therapy, psychological services, counseling, assisted technology and a variety of vocational services. Leisure and recreational activities are also provided in both a structured and unstructured therapeutic environment. Activities can range from highly-competitive athletics for the able-bodied and persons in wheelchairs, to noncompetitive sporting games and the creative arts. Some services may be covered by private or federal health insurance; others may be offered at a reduced sliding-scale rate based on financial need.
