Acute Rehabilitation Center

Helping patients improve mental and physical functioning after a life-changing event.

The Arroyo Grande Community Hospital Acute Rehabilitation Center is a comprehensive and interdisciplinary inpatient unit.  Thanks to generous donations to the AGCH Foundation from community donors, it is the only facility of its kind within a 100-mile radius.

Studies show that patients heal faster and more successfully when they are close to family and friends. As opposed to Skilled Nursing Facilities, which comprise the bulk of California’s rehabilitation industry, AGCH provides unmatched medical management: three hours of daily rehabilitation, a five-to-one patient-to-Registered-Nurse ratio and face-to-face, doctor-patient meetings at least three times per week, as well as weekly care team conferences. The center also provides a full scope of physical, occupational and speech therapies, along with prosthetics, orthotics and social work.

Dedicated to helping patients regain function, Acute Care Rehab is like a boot camp for intense, accelerated physical rehabilitation. The Acute Rehabilitation Center at AGCH has an 80 percent return-to-home rate.
