What is Post-Acute Rehabilitation?

Post-hospital, post-acute, or short stay rehabilitation care is designed to improve a person’s transition back home following surgery, illness or injury. Short stay rehab residents no longer need the acute care setting of a hospital but still require a high level of clinical and rehabilitative care to ensure a speedy recovery.  The goal of the program is to provide the highest level of rehabilitation and skilled nursing care to residents while facilitating the transition, as quickly and safely as possible, from hospital to home.  Post-acute rehabilitation stays typically last twenty-one days or less.

Selecting a short stay rehab or post-acute provider is a critically important decision as the clinical team can significantly impact the success of treatment. It’s important to choose a short stay rehab program with a demonstrated track record of success and a proven commitment to clinical excellence and resident-driven care.
