Services We Offer

The following patients may be appropriate for one of the Memorial Hermann Community Inpatient Rehabilitation Units:

Individualized Treatment Program

An individualized and comprehensive treatment program is designed by the Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) interdisciplinary team to meet the specific needs of each patient. The inpatient rehabilitation team consists of the physicians, the patient, the family, physical therapists, speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, psychologist, social worker, case managers, clinical dietitian and 24-hour nursing services.

An individualized rehabilitation program is developed to promote independence and safety so that the patient can return to a productive and fulfilling life. The PM&R physician collaborates with the patient’s other physicians.

Scope of Services

At the Memorial Hermann inpatient rehabilitation unit, we provide individualized and patient-center care. The inpatient rehabilitation unit operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We provide rehabilitative care for individuals with many different debilitating injuries, illnesses and other serious medical conditions. Our patients benefit from the highly specialized care provided through our inpatient rehabilitation programs.

Each patient admitted to the inpatient rehabilitation unit is expected to have a diagnosis/condition which is known to benefit from comprehensive rehabilitation intervention. Functional limitations may include any of the following:

  • Mobility deficits
  • Activity of daily living such as grooming, dressing, or bathing
  • Feeding or swallowing deficits
  • Speech, language, or hearing deficits
  • Cognitive, perceptual and/or sensory deficits

Patients admitted for inpatient rehabilitation services* are expected to meet the following criteria:

  • Must be medically stable to allow for full participation in 3 hours of interdisciplinary rehabilitation treatments. Comprehensive therapy services may include:
  • Must require visits by a physician specializing in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and 24-hour rehabilitation nursing care
  • Must demonstrate potential for functional and/or cognitive improvement in a reasonable length of time
  • Must have a discharge plan that provides the necessary support based on the patient’s abilities at discharge.

Although the majority of our referrals come from acute-care hospitals, we also receive referral from other sources, - including, but not limited to, physician offices and skilled nursing facilities.

Funding sources may include private insurance, worker’s compensation, government programs (i.e., Medicare) and self-pay. In addition, charity care can be provided in accordance with the appropriate guidelines.
