Committed to Quality
Our success depends on the quality of care provided to each and every patient. Our expert team of physicians, nurses, therapists and hospital staff is committed to providing safe, quality and cost-effective care to all patients. We strive to help every patient maximize potential and exceed personal expectations.
Our hospital complies with local, state and federal regulations as well as the accreditation standards of The Joint Commission, a leader in determining quality and safety standards for healthcare delivery.
Certification in Stroke Rehabilitation and Brain Injury Rehabilitation
In addition to Joint Commission accreditation, our stroke rehabilitation, brain injury rehabilitation and amputee rehabilitation programs have earned Disease-Specific Care Certification from The Joint Commission.
Rehabilitation is crucial to the recovery process and can be the difference in patients living a lifetime with a disability versus regaining full independence. This Gold Seal of Approval® from The Joint Commission shows our hospital’s commitment to comply with the highest national standards for safety and quality of care for patients recovering from stroke, brain injury or amputations.

Top 10% in Class
Our hospital ranked in the top 10% of 783 inpatient rehabilitation facilities in the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR®) database in 2014.
UDSMR® is a non-profit group that evaluates rehabilitation hospitals on their delivery of quality care that is effective, efficient, timely and patient-centered. We utilize UDSMR® measurement tools to evaluate and track our patients’ progress through the rehabilitation process and then benchmark our performance against national data. This recognition confirms our ability to assist our patients in achieving excellent outcomes helping them return to home and work in shorter periods of time.
