Inpatient Rehabilitation

MedStar Health is proud to have three hospitals with comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation programs, which provide both medical care and a full range of physical, behavioral, and cognitive rehabilitation services. Our rehabilitation teams design personalized, interdisciplinary rehabilitation programs to meet patients’ needs so they can return to their community, families, and everyday lives after a disabling injury or illness. Doctors are in daily contact with patients to monitor medical conditions and progress, and patients receive 24-hour nursing care. If a patient has complex medical needs, an acute rehabilitation program is best.

Inpatient rehabilitation is available at the following locations:
