The Methodist Hospital Rehabilitation Department recently received a tremendous honor when the department was named to Newsweek magazine’s list of America’s Best Physical Rehab Centers for 2021.
This prestigious award is presented by Newsweek and Statista, the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.
The America’s Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers 2021 list highlights the nation’s top inpatient rehabilitation facilities based on quality of care, service, follow-up care and accommodation and amenities.
Facilities in the 25 states with the highest number of inpatient rehabilitation facilities — according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services — were part of this study. The rankings feature the top 230 centers nationwide. The awards list can currently be viewed on Newsweek’s website.
“On behalf of our nurses, therapists and staff who work tirelessly every day to rehabilitate our patients and improve their quality of life, we sincerely appreciate this recognition,” said Dr. Raymond Gritton, medical director of the Methodist Hospital Acute Rehabilitation Department. “Congratulations to our outstanding team for making this honor possible.”
The rehabilitation program at Methodist Hospital provides clinical services to patients who have lost a level of their independence from neurological and orthopedic conditions, along with severe debilitation from medical illness.
Acute rehabilitation care at Methodist Hospital takes place in a 30-bed inpatient unit and offers a unique opportunity for patients to optimize their functionality through an intensive interdisciplinary therapeutic program under the oversight of a board certified rehabilitation physician.
Methodist Hospital acute rehab services are managed by Kindred Hospital Rehabilitation Services under the direction of hospital administration.
