In the Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation unit, we provide acute rehabilitation services for patients with disabilities caused by illnesses, surgeries or injuries. The goal of the Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation program is to help patients develop the skills necessary to live as independently as possible after leaving the Hospital. Our interdisciplinary team approach toward rehabilitation is used to focus on the patient’s specific area(s) of disability. Potential candidates for LMH's Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation services are patients who have difficulty with one or more of the following functions:
  • Balance or coordination
  • Swallowing
  • Mobility
  • Daily activities, such as eating, grooming, dressing, bathing, homemaking
  • Memory or judgment
  • Speech/language
  • Moving arms, legs or torso
