The month of October is designated as National Physical Therapy Month, helping to educate consumers and patients on the various benefits of physical therapy and rehabilitation programs. Consider this overview on Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center’s physical therapy program to learn more.

Rehabilitation is a crucial part of recovery, especially after an orthopedic procedure or neurological condition such as a stroke . That’s why Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center offers a comprehensive integrated inpatient rehabilitation program, providing patients with access to physicians, emergency services, diagnostic imaging, and all the other benefits of our inpatient hospital center. Our rehabilitation program utilizes a multi-disciplinary team of experienced providers including acute-care therapists to help patients prepare for the next level of care once discharged from our hospital. By utilizing a multi-step approach, our physical therapists ensure that patients make an easy transition between two levels of care, both inpatient and outpatient or home services.

Our rehabilitation program includes physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, and recreational therapy. We also offer specialized treatment services, such as swallowing therapy to help patients recover after experiencing a stroke. In fact, we are the only stroke-specialty CARF accredited facility in Nevada, employing medical professionals and physicians who have extensive experience in stroke rehabilitation training. As the only inpatient rehabilitation facility in Clark County to be accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehab Facilities, Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center’s rehabilitation center is devoted to meeting the highest standards for physical therapy care.

Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center’s rehabilitation program is available to patients who live in Anthem, Henderson, North Las Vegas, South Las Vegas, East Las Vegas, downtown Las Vegas, and Summerlin.

Serving the Las Vegas area for several years, Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center is your number one resource for inpatient rehabilitation.
