Inpatient rehabilitation 

Inpatient rehabilitation services at The Christ Hospital Health Network offer a comprehensive, coordinated approach to your rehabilitation needs during your inpatient stay. If you are disabled by an illness or injury, you face difficult adjustments and major lifestyle changes that often go beyond physical limitations. By providing a supportive, caring environment, we emphasize your abilities rather than disabilities.

Inpatient rehabilitation program

Our inpatient rehabilitation program helps instill the confidence you need to achieve your maximum level of functional independence and to regain the life you treasure. To do this, we are transforming the way inpatient rehabilitation is provided. We focus on improving your function and maximizing your outcomes using unique activities in a supportive environment.

Inpatient rehabilitation patients

We work with 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. Many of our patients have experienced a loss of function in activities of daily living, mobility, cognition or communication. 

To qualify for inpatient rehabilitation, patients must be medically stable but have medical needs at a level that requires an ongoing hospital stay. This program does not currently serve patients who are ventilator-dependent, comatose, or have complete quadriplegia or burn management needs. 

Why choose The Christ Hospital Health Network 

Our inpatient rehabilitation program currently holds the highest level of accreditation, including:

  • A three-year accreditation from CARF International for Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Services 

  • 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 goes through a rigorous peer review process and has to demonstrate to a team of surveyors during an on-site visit that its programs and services are of the highest quality.   

The Christ Hospital is proud to be CARF Accredited since 1996.

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, this accrediting body establishes consumer-focused standards to help organizations measure and improve the quality of their programs and services. 

In addition to the specific inpatient rehabilitation accreditations, The Christ Hospital Health Network has been recognized for the following achievements and rankings:

  • Most Preferred Healthcare Provider in the Region and "Consumer's Choice" for healthcare for 21 consecutive years (1996 - 2017).
