Each patient’s injury and recovery is unique and requires individualized assessment and treatment. We recognize that each patient requires specialized, focused, comprehensive care, whether being treated for a one-time problem or for a long-term physical condition.

RMC’s highly-trained rehabilitation specialists provide patients with an individualized rehabilitation treatment plan that includes a variety of advanced techniques designed to restore normal strength, motion and flexibility and reduce pain as quickly and safely as possible. Our emphasis is on ensuring that patients play a very proactive role in their recovery process.

Inpatient Rehabilitation

Inpatient rehabilitation services are available for patients during hospitalization. This is generally available if a physician feels that a patient requires a less-intensive level of care but still not quite ready to leave the hospital.
