Rehabilitation is an ever-changing process. Logan Health’s acute rehabilitation team strives to treat the whole person. We work with patients and families, teaching skills to restore functional independence, in an atmosphere of compassion and integrity.
Our modern facility is located on the second floor of Logan Health Medical Center on the northside. Our friendly, competent and integrated staff creates thorough, individualized treatment plans for our patients. At Logan Health, our Inpatient Rehab Services produce successful patient outcomes which exceed national and regional averages.
Our Inpatient Rehab Program & Services
Patients will have a regular daily therapy schedule generally between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. Patients will have a minimum of three hours of therapy 5 days per week involving two or more therapy disciplines, depending on the patient’s rehabilitation needs. Schedules will be posted on the main schedule board located in the patient dining area. Therapy will be provided both individually and in recreation groups as appropriate. Recreation therapy gives patients an opportunity to work on skills in a social setting, and adds a measure of fun to therapy sessions.
Logan Health’s Inpatient Rehabilitation team recognizes our ethical responsibilities to patients, families, caregivers and the community that we serve. Each patient will be treated with dignity and respect. We provide quality care to all persons entitled to rehabilitation services without discrimination. As part of this commitment, we want to ensure that a stay with us is a positive experience.

Upon referral to the rehabilitation program the patient is evaluated prior to admission. Patients must be medically stable and physically able to benefit from an intensive therapy program that will include at least three hours of therapy a day. The Inpatient Rehabilitation program is designed to meet the individual needs of each patient. We will work with patients and families to maximize functional independence and plan for a successful discharge to home and community.
Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance companies provide an inpatient rehabilitation benefit. The social worker will communicate with the insurance provider prior to the patient being admitted to the rehabilitation unit. A list of things to bring during a rehabilitation stay, patients will wear street clothing. We recommend loose-fitting, comfortable clothes as patients will be involved in different activities throughout the day.
Suggested items include: slacks (jogging outfits if available), blouses, shirts, sweaters, robes, slippers, flat-soled shoes, jackets, gloves, and hats as needed. Patients will also need a selection of underclothing and toiletries. Families should provide enough clothing for three days. Clothing should be labeled for easy identification. The nursing staff will wash laundry each evening as needed. We also encourage patients to bring personal belongings such as cards, flowers and pictures to make the room more comfortable. If patients bring electrical appliances (razor, hair dryer, tape player), they will need to be checked by our clinical engineers for safety before use.
