We offer rehabilitation programs for inpatients, outpatients and residents of the Ellis Residential & Rehabilitation Center, with specific goals and strategies as follows:

Areas of focus include gait, exercise, functional mobility training and education. Patients from various hospital units benefit from our inpatient services, including medical/surgical, orthopedic, neurological (we are a key component of the Stroke Center), emergency room, cardiac, oncology and pulmonary cases.
