  • Stroke
  • Brain Injury
  • Neurological diagnoses such as Parkinson's, West Nile, autoimmune disease

Admission requires a referral from your physician. Patients must:

  • Be medically stable
  • Have deficits in mobility, safety, self-care, communication and/or thinking skills
  • Be willing and able to participate in an intensive rehabilitation program

Our staff conducts a thorough screen prior to admission to determine the patient's rehabilitation potential. The main questions we address in this assessment are whether the patient will be able to make a measurable improvement in physical strength and ability to perform activities of daily living. Patients need to be physically able to participate in at least 3 hours of therapy a day.   Patients must also have the cognitive ability and willingness to participate actively in the rehabilitation program.

To refer call the admission coordinators: Joyce Mattison, MSN, RN or Stephanie Stahl, BSN, RN at 785.650.2752 or 785.650.2774.
