Lima Memorial’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Center offers acute rehabilitation for individuals who need intense therapy following a hospital admission to prepare patients for a safe return to home. This includes individuals who have experienced a stroke, head or spinal cord injuries, or other neurological conditions; recent amputation from trauma or illness; orthopaedic injury or condition; or other debilitating illness. Patients with multiple sclerosis, Guillain-Barre syndrome and Parkinson's disease following a hospital admission may also benefit from the services offered through our Inpatient Rehabilitation Center.
Acute rehabilitation is an intensive form of medical rehabilitation that takes place in an inpatient setting. Patients receive three or more hours of core therapies per day, consisting of physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. In acute rehabilitation settings, patients are cared for by a multidisciplinary team of clinicians from a wide variety of medical fields.
Through community support, the Lima Memorial Foundation raised $2.5 million to completely transform the way inpatient rehabilitation is delivered to our region. In November 2020, Lima Memorial welcomed its first of many patients into the new center. Physicians, therapists, nurses and former patients and their families provided valuable input to create this state-of-the-art center for our region.
Features and services within the new center include:
The activity hub of the center is the therapy gymnasium, fully equipped with a wide range of technology only found at Lima Memorial. Lima Memorial’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Center is the only center in the region to offer three main pieces of equipment to our patients. These include:
A specialized interdisciplinary team will work with patients to develop a treatment plan and set individualized goals to help achieve personal successes that will maximize their independence.
Your team will include:
Additional services may include respiratory therapists, chaplain services, audiology, cardiology and other specialty services as needed for your well-being.
Team conferences are held weekly. During this meeting, your interdisciplinary team discusses your progress. The medical director and care coordinator will discuss the results of these meetings with you and your family directly following the meeting.
Our Inpatient Rehabilitation Center is accredited by The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). CARF is considered the gold standard and premier accrediting body for rehabilitation programs.
Our care team will work with patients and their family / support system to help make important decisions about discharge as well as help prepare for anticipated needs. If required, referrals to outpatient services can also be arranged.
