The patients referred to the Rehabilitation Hospital of Wisconsin are educated on our criteria and medically assessed before admission.  All patients are required to complete 15 hours of therapy (physical, occupational, and possibly speech) a week.  This may seem intimidating, but it is also extremely rewarding.  Inpatient rehabilitation programs are designed to benefit individuals with diagnoses such as:

  • Stroke
  • Joint Replacement
  • Hip Fracture
  • Spinal Cord Injury
  • Amputation
  • Brain Injury
  • Neurological Conditions (such as MS or Parkinson’s)
  • Multiple Trauma

To be considered for admission to RHOW, patients must meet the following inpatient rehabilitation criteria:

  • Must be medically stable (based on the assessment of Clinical Liaison)
  • Able to tolerate three hours per day of therapy (physical, occupational, and speech) soon after admission
  • Require 24-hour nursing care and intensive level of at least two types of therapy (physical, occupational, or speech)
  • Goal to return to community living situation and functional independence
  • Physician and insurance approval
