The Team Approach
Rehabilitation care at St. Joseph is a team concept. As with any successful
team, a good leader is top priority. Our team leader is the physiatrist,
who is a physician who specializes in physical and rehabilitation medicine.
However, the most important player on our team is the patient. At St. Joseph,
we make sure patients are always directly involved with daily decisions
about their rehabilitation.
The rehabilitation process begins as the interdisciplinary team identifies
the physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs of each patient following
disability. This procedure assists in developing an individualized plan
of care which will assure the patient attains the highest possible level
