Rehabilitation therapies help patients regain independence and mobility after an injury or other impairment. Franciscan Health's outpatient rehabilitation teams follow programs designed to promote success - returning people to their home or community and enhance their quality of life.
Outpatient Rehabilitation Services to Achieve Your Goals
The Franciscan Health outpatient rehabilitation programs provide an evidence-based approach to rehabilitation care. The primary goal of outpatient rehabilitation is to assist patients with functional limitations and help them regain their independence and the skills required for daily living.
Our outpatient rehabilitation programs promote personal and professional interaction with experienced, highly trained therapists who use aggressive, yet compassionate, techniques to individualize each treatment plan. All therapies are conducted under the direction of the patient’s physician.
