Inpatient Physical Rehabilitation
Henry Ford Health System has two Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Units designed for patients requiring intensive, in-hospital rehabilitation following a serious injury, illness or surgery. They're located at:
- Henry Ford Macomb Hospital - Clinton Township
- Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital
Both units are staffed by a comprehensive, multidisciplinary rehabilitation team consisting of physiatrists, advanced-practice nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, social workers, therapeutic recreation specialists and other highly-skilled health professionals. These teams specialize in providing 24/7 medical and inpatient rehabilitative care to patients who have:
- Undergone joint replacement, spine surgery, limb amputation or other orthopedic procedure.
- Experienced a stroke
- Complications or issues related to Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis, Guillain-Barre syndrome or other neurological conditions
- Cardiac conditions, including myocardial infarction and artery bypass
- Suffered a brain injury, spinal cord injury or other trauma
- A debility caused by cancer, pulmonary disease or other serious medical condition
All patients on the unit receive intense, daily physical and occupational therapy. Patients also have access to social services, 24-hour nursing care, psychological testing and support, and comprehensive pre-discharge education. Family members are encouraged to visit and become actively involved in their loved one's healing process through caregiver education.
When continued outpatient therapy is needed, patients who choose one of our convenient outpatient locations find that their care plan is seamlessly transferred and medical needs met with Henry Ford staff taking care of all the arrangements.
