The Shannon Rehabilitation Center is an inpatient program dedicated to helping individuals with disabilities attain optimal independence. Our center provides patients with simulated real-life environments where they perform daily activities such as navigating the kitchen and bathroom and getting into and out of a car.
Medical Director, Chris Vanderzant, DO, leads an interdisciplinary team in the development of a comprehensive rehabilitation program. The rehabilitation team includes:
- 24-hour rehabilitation nursing.
- Physical therapy.
- Occupational therapy.
- Speech therapy.
- Case management, social work and psychology.
Patients and their family members are actively involved in establishing goals, participating in therapy and planning for life after discharge.
Conditions we treat
- Brain injury.
- Fractured hips and femurs.
- Poly arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
- Degenerative and progressive neurological disorders such as Parkinson's and multiple sclerosis.
- Multiple trauma.
- Other debilitating conditions resulting in loss of independence in self-care and mobility.
This program does not currently serve persons who are ventilator-dependent, comatose or have burn management needs. Persons under age 17 are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
A referral to the Rehabilitation Center may be made by a physician, insurance provider, family member, patient or other concerned party. Preadmission evaluations are provided at no charge to determine a patient's eligibility for admission to the program.
