Intensity of Services

Patients will receive a minimum of three hours of physical and occupational therapy, Monday through Friday and one half day on Saturday, for a duration that is determined by the team. Speech and other services are provided in addition to the three hours of physical and occupational therapy. This program does not currently serve those who are ventilator dependent, comatose, or have burn management needs. Please understand that patients must be 18 years or older for admission. Those who are referred between the ages of 13 and 17 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Your Return Home: In 2011, 447 patients were discharged and 75 percent of those people were able to return to an independent living setting. The team will work with you and your family to help determine the best discharge environment for you based on your needs at the time of discharge. If you are unable to return home, the team will assist you and your family in making other arrangements.

Our Commitment to You: It is the policy of the Rehabilitation Center that all team members act in a manner consistent with the mission, philosophy, and operating policies of the program to bring to life the core values of Norman Regional Health System. Patient Satisfaction Surveys at the time of discharge indicated that 97 percent of our patients would recommend our program to others.
