Acute Rehabilitation Center

The NEED:

As the only facility of its kind between Salinas and Santa Barbara, our Acute Rehabilitation Center provides intensive, accelerated physical rehabilitation care for patients who have suffered serious illness or injuries such as stroke, brain injury, amputation, spinal cord injury, orthopedic dysfunction, major multiple trauma, or degenerative neurological disorders. Combining personalized plans for medical management with a full complement of physical, occupational, and speech therapies, our patients stay on average less than 12 days, and 80% are able to return directly home for continued outpatient rehabilitation. The Center is consistently at full capacity, and expansion is necessary to continue to meet the needs of patients through a wide range of therapies.

The VISION:

•A larger gymnasium and additional therapy rooms will enhance patient care, while additional treatment areas and physician offices will provide greater privacy for family consultation.

•Increased space will provide the opportunity for an expanded range of therapies and programs.

•The renovated facility will accommodate Electronic Medical Records and other new technologies.
