Acute Rehab at Hunt Regional Medical Center

Inpatient (or acute) rehabilitation provides opportunities for recovery like no other outpatient or skilled nursing facility can offer. This type of intensive therapy helps patients regain strength, improve mobility, perform activities of daily living independently, and return home if possible.

Individualized Treatment Plans

The events and conditions that bring patients to our Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit change their lives forever.

We work closely with every patient to help them regain all that they can to resume functional daily living. Our patients will work hard, but the effort will be worth it. We keep our patients focused on their recovery goals.

Because each person is unique, our dedicated team individualizes every patient’s care, taking into consideration that everyone has different needs and progresses at a different pace.

At Hunt Regional Healthcare, we are dedicated to helping patients get past the hurdles and back to their lives—returning to work, family, active retirement, or independent living.

Advantages of Inpatient Rehab

Admission to our inpatient program has several advantages for patients, some of which include:

  • A shorter hospital stay
  • Significantly better and longer lasting outcomes
  • The ability to return to home
  • Cost savings

To Make a Referral

Referrals can be initiated by physicians, patients and their families; discharge planners; and allied health professionals.

We invite you to contact the program director at the Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit to discuss our services, code of ethics, mission, and philosophy as well as to arrange a tour of the unit.

Our program director or case coordinator will contact you immediately about the viability of admission for your referral. They can tell you if your patient has the potential for admission based on their diagnosis and functional need. Together, we can help your patient recover and achieve as much independence as possible.

If you believe a patient may benefit from our rehabilitation services, please phone us. A member of our staff will perform a screening at no charge. If it is determined that the patient is not a candidate for inpatient rehabilitation, alternate resources will be discussed.
