Comprehensive, interdisciplinary inpatient rehabilitation to help you rebuild your life after injury or illness

Through our Comprehensive, Interdisciplinary Inpatient Rehabilitation program (CIIRP), we offer specialized rehabilitation services for patients who benefit from intense, coordinated, and integrated therapy in a hospital setting. Our mission is to bring quality to the lives of patients with cognitive and functional limitations, one that we achieve by focusing on our patients’ capabilities rather than disabilities.

Our collaboration with MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital enhances our ability to offer expert, specialized care in a state-of-the-art facility in Baltimore. Using the latest advances in technology and research, our interdisciplinary treatment team helps patients return to their highest levels of independence after sustaining life-altering injuries and illnesses.

Since 1971, our high standards of quality care have earned our hospital accreditation by CARF, the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. And, our Stroke Recovery inpatient rehabilitation program has been CARF-accredited as a Specialty Program since 2007. As the highest level of accreditation awarded to an organization, this designation demonstrates that our rehabilitation services are some of the best in Maryland.
