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.
