Our acute inpatient rehabilitation hospitals provide specialized physical medicine and rehabilitation to patients recovering from a recent hospitalization or a decline in health in order to regain independence and return safely to their homes.
After hospitalization for an illness or severe injury, you may need to decide whether to continue recovery at an inpatient rehabilitation hospital. Our inpatient rehab is a comprehensive acute medical rehabilitation program that runs for about three hours daily, five days a week. While you are in our care, you will have daily physician attention and supervision, at least three types of therapy and compassionate 24-hour nursing care.
At PAM Health, we are aware that the quicker you start your rehabilitation, the faster you can experience a full recovery. That is why we encouarge you to consider coming to our outstanding, well-maintained acute inpatient rehabilitation hospital where you will benefit from physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and recreational therapy. The specialists on the rehabilitation teams in our Joint Commission-certified acute care rehab hospital will help you choose the most suitable care plan to meet your recovery goals.

Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRF) versus Skilled Nursing Facilities and Rehab Centers (SNFs)
There are significant differences in both the type and the outcomes of care provided in an acute rehabilitation hospital versus that provided in a skilled nursing facility and rehabilitation center. Research shows that the amount and type of therapy services, physician oversight and specialized rehabilitation nursing provided in an acute rehabilitation hospital leads to better patient care and outcomes.
The Joint Commission (TJC) has accredited all of our rehabilitation hospitals, demonstrating our commitment to high quality hospital level care. In addition, we are committed to meeting specialized standards for certain programs through TJC’s Disease Specific Certification Programs.
