Individualized therapy

The rehabilitation program is led by a board-certified physiatrist who has advanced medical training and skills to diagnose and treat functional disabilities that may be caused by injuries, illness, or birth defects. Our healing attitude begins in our unique, personalized care setting, and follows through with our professional staff who take a holistic approach to total health — physical, psychological, social, and spiritual well-being. From Day One, we are focused on helping you achieve your biggest goal — going home.

We offer specialized rehabilitation nursing (many RNs are also certified rehabilitation nurses, CRRNs) and case management as well as comprehensive physical, occupational, speech/language and recreational therapy, supported by the latest rehabilitation technologies.

Our clinical association with Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital ensures that your care meets the standards among rehabilitation providers throughout New England. You'll benefit from the best of both worlds: the resources of a major rehabilitation hospital, and the family-centered, easily accessible environment of a local community hospital. Our rehabilitative programs and therapies meet quality standards in collaboration with Whittier Rehabilitation Hospital, a renowned rehabilitation hospital in New England.

The center provides specialized rehabilitation therapy for any condition that limits participation in daily life, including the following examples:

  • Stroke
  • Amputation
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer
  • Cardiac disease
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Guillain-Barré Syndrome
  • Neuromuscular diseases
  • Neurological disorders
  • Pulmonary disease
  • Complex medical problems
  • Orthopedic problems
  • Neuro-oncology

Comprehensive services

When it comes to accessing specialized services, you'll never have to worry. We are located on a dedicated floor within St. Joseph Hospital, so any medical services required during your stay - including CT scans, MRIs, ultrasounds, wound care, ICU and more - are all in the same building. What is more, you'll have the assurance and security of physicians on site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

St. Joseph Hospital Rehabilitation Center is accredited by DNV GL- Healthcare.


We accept referrals for admission from physicians, social workers, case managers, other health professionals, family members, and patients themselves.
