It all begins when your doctor determines that you will benefit from acute inpatient rehabilitation. Like any medical specialty, rehabilitation requires a referral, which is coordinated by your hospital case manager. Rehabilitation programs have very specific guidelines, so a Clinical Rehabilitation Specialists will review your medical history and collaborate with you, your physician, your nurses, and your caregivers to determine if inpatient acute rehabilitation is best for you.
Referrals from your doctor, a healthcare professional, or a family member can be made by calling (727) 588-5831.

- Medically stable and has the potential to participate in three hours of therapy per day, at least five days per week
