Why choose us
We are the region's largest acute rehabilitation hospital. MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital is responsible for treating some of the nation’s most complex cases, due to our research partnership with Georgetown University School of Medicine, our highly specialized physicians, and our continued use of the latest technology; we are prepared to treat any injury.
The mission of the MedStar National Rehabilitation Network is to serve the community as a regional and national leader in rehabilitation services through five major areas:
- Quality patient care in inpatient, outpatient, and day treatment programs
- Rehabilitation research
- Education and training of rehabilitation professionals and the community
- Assistive technology that helps persons with disabilities live productive lives
- Advocacy - working with persons with disabilities to communicate their needs to policymakers at the local, state, and national levels
We are the region’s (DMV) largest acute rehabilitation hospital, and a proud part of the MedStar Health system.
Our founding credo is “Adding Life to Years®.” While acute care is adding years to people’s lives, the goal and foundation of our clinical work is to make sure that people achieve their maximum level of function and independence and get back to home, work, and life. That goal guides who we are and what we do.
