You have a choice in rehabilitation. Let us help determine the right care.
Since 1997, the Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit at College Station Medical Center (CSMC) has been dedicated to helping patients who have suffered an injury or illness that limits their daily life activities. We provide rehabilitative care for patients 18 years of age and older.
CSMC’s rehabilitation unit has all private rooms conveniently located on the second floor of the hospital. There is a dedicated gym and training kitchen to relearn the activities of daily living.
The unit is staffed by a multi-disciplinary team of medical professionals with a broad range of therapeutic experience. Our team includes a board certified Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physician, physical therapists, occupational therapists, rehabilitation nurses, speech-language pathologists, an activity coordinator and a social worker. Together, they formulate a specialized treatment plan to enhance recovery and achieve the desired outcomes that are required for a successful return to normalized activities.
Weekly rehab team meetings for the patient and family help keep them informed about the patient’s progress and current goals for rehabilitation.
We provide care for individuals needing intense inpatient therapy, which is defined as a minimum of three hours of daily therapy for at least five days per week. We also provide complex inpatient patient care with close medical supervision and 24-hour rehab nursing. Prospective patients that are viable rehab candidates should understand their commitment to achieving realistic rehab goals within a reasonable period of time. The patient and family should demonstrate a willingness to participate in the recommended therapy program.
We serve patients with a wide variety of needs from post-surgical recovery to chronic medical conditions including:
- Brain injury
- Cardiac and pulmonary diseases
- Guillain-Barre Syndrome
- Hip fractures
- Joint replacements
- Multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease
- Multiple trauma
- Spinal cord injury
Our team works closely with patients to implement a treatment plan that will help them achieve their goals. We use therapy from a number of disciplines in individual sessions to give patients the skills they need to be as independent as possible. In addition to 24-hour-a-day medical support, our program provides a full range of therapies and services, including:
- Physical therapy
- Occupational therapy
- Speech therapy
- Activity therapy
- Rehabilitation nursing
- Social work services
- Nutrition services
