Inpatient Rehabilitation Service
Rehabilitation is a process that aims to maximise your recovery and restoration of independence after illness or injury. You are encouraged to consider what you will need to be able to do to function safety at home, as these forms the basis of your rehabilitation.
Our patients are accommodated in a designated ward area staffed by appropriately qualified nurses, near fully equipped therapy areas. The core allied health staff are employed by the hospital to ensure their exclusive availability to the defined programs at the level and standards set by The Australian College of Physicians. The service has its own fully equipped Gymnasium and purpose built Hydrotherapy Pool.
Inpatients who are recovering from orthopaedic or spinal surgery that would benefit from one of our Programs can be referred by their treating doctor.
