Inpatient rehabilitation at United Hospital

  • Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute's inpatient rehabilitation units provide a comfortable environment, where each patient can receive therapeutic care and practice daily living activities. Patients also benefit from counseling, education, 24-hour rehabilitation nursing care and a daily visit with a physical medicine and rehabilitation doctor (physiatrist).

    Courage Kenny's inpatient unit at United Hospital is on the eighth floor and is called Unit 8940. The unit has 16 beds.

    Patients benefit from 24-hour rehabilitation nursing care. Patient rooms are arranged for observation by nursing staff and to promote socialization and support among patients and families. United Hospital has two therapy gyms. For convenience, one is located on the 8th floor adjacent to the rehab unit. The other is located on the first floor near the therapeutic garden. The gyms are equipped to help patients regain as much independence as possible. Therapeutic kitchens feature high- and low-tech solutions to address common mobility and cognitive challenges. A healing garden provides horticultural therapy to practice skills and to benefit from the healing effects associated with plants and the natural environment. To ensure continuity of care, patients who need therapy will work with the same therapists who treated them upon admission.
