Individuals disabled by an illness or injury face difficult
adjustments and major lifestyle changes that often go beyond physical
limitations. By providing a supportive, caring environment, emphasizing
patients’ abilities rather than disabilities, our Inpatient
Rehabilitation Program strives to help instill in patients the
confidence needed to achieve their maximum level of functional
independence and to regain the lives they treasure. To do this, we are
transforming the way inpatient rehabilitation is provided, focusing not
simply on helping improve function in our patients, but doing so with
unique activities, a supportive environment and compassionate staff to
maximize each patient’s outcome.
Our patients include
adult and geriatric individuals who require early, intensive therapies
for optimal recovery from conditions such as stroke, brain injury,
neurological disorders, amputation and major multiple trauma who have
experienced a loss of function in activities of daily living, mobility,
cognition or communication. Patients must be medically stable but have
medical needs at a level to warrant an ongoing hospital stay. This
program does not currently serve patients who are ventilator-dependent,
comatose, or have complete quadriplegia or burn management needs.
Christ Hospital currently holds the highest level of Accreditation - a
three-year Accreditation - from CARF International for Acute Inpatient
Rehabilitation Services as well as an additional Accreditation for
Inpatient Rehabilitation Stroke Specialty programs. These accreditations
represent the highest level of accreditation that can be awarded to an
organization and shows the organization’s substantial conformance to the
CARF standards. An organization receiving a Three-Year Accreditation
has put itself through a rigorous peer review process and has
demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its
programs and services are of the highest quality, measurable, and
What is CARF?
CARF International is
an independent, nonprofit accreditor of health and human services whose
mission is to promote the quality, value, and optimal outcomes of
services through a consultative accreditation process that centers on
enhancing the lives of the persons served. Founded in 1966 as the
Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, and now
known as CARF International, the accrediting body establishes
