Rehabilitation Admission Criteria

Our goal at St. Joseph Medical Center is to rehabilitate our patients so they can return to their home setting with the ability to function as independent as possible.

Admission to acute rehab is based on specific guidelines including your particular illness or injury and how it has affected your ability to function.

While the majority of our rehabilitation clients are treated for one or more of the following conditions, we welcome referrals for all diagnoses.

  • Stroke (CVA)
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Congenital deformities
  • Amputation
  • Multiple trauma
  • Hip fracture
  • Brain injury
  • Burns
  • Polyarthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis and possibly joint replacements resulting from arthritic conditions
  • Neurologic disorders
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Parkinson's disease
