Inpatient Rehabilitation Center in Jasper, Indiana

Intensive Programs for Long-Term Recovery

The Inpatient Rehabilitation Center provides intensive rehabilitation patients who have experienced a serious illness, trauma, or major surgery. Rehabilitation professionals will work with patients on how to live with an injury or illness by teaching them new ways of caring for themselves and assisting them with improving their abilities.

The Inpatient Rehabilitation program serves patients with a variety of medical, physical, and functional needs including patients who have had a stroke, brain or spinal cord injury, multiple trauma, fracture of the hip or femur, amputation, joint replacement surgery, or have a degenerative and progressive neurological disorder such as Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis.

The goal of Inpatient Rehabilitation is to assist each patient in:

  • Achieving functional independence in balance and coordination
  • Swallowing
  • Mobility/walking
  • Speaking/communication
  • Daily activities such as bathing
  • Grooming
  • Dressing and household chores

Admission Criteria

Medicare and supplemental insurance covers most services provided during a rehabilitation stay as long as the admission criteria are met. Our Rehabilitation Medical Director will make the decision whether the patient meets the criteria, however, the decision is subject to review by Medicare. Prior authorization of coverage from private insurance, Medicaid, and managed care will be verified prior to admission. The prior authorization is not a guarantee of payment. The rehabilitation team will explain any limitations and update patients and families regarding coverage.

  • The individual needs at least two disciplines of therapy (physical, occupational, or speech therapy)
  • The individual needs 24-hour nursing care
