The Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit at San Angelo Community Medical Center is designed to provide specialized care for patients who have been diagnosed with or suffering from health care issues that have caused a recent decline in their functional abilities, such as neurological problems, an amputation, or an orthopedic condition.
An Inpatient Rehab experience is very different from a typical hospital stay, with the goal of admission being to prepare the patient and caregiver to leave the Unit capable of dealing with the physical, psychological and cognitive effects of their disability.
The Unit offers an array of services designed to return the patient to the maximal level of functional independence as possible.
The Unit is overseen by a Physician Medical Director with over 15 years of Rehabilitation experience who directs an interdisciplinary team of nurses and therapists.
The team is made up of Rehab Nurses, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists, a Professional Case Manager, Social Worker, and a Psychologist. This team is dedicated to spending time with the patient and family to assist them in overcoming and coping with the effects of their loved one’s disability.
The Rehab Unit at San Angelo Community Medical Center is a CARF accredited facility, which gives each patient and family the confidence that they are receiving the best quality of care in West Texas.
