Serious illness or injury. It's not something we like to think about. However, sometimes it happens. When it does, Bellin Health’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit is here to help you make the fullest recovery possible, so you can return to your lifestyle feeling — and functioning — better.
Bellin provides inpatient rehabilitation for individuals who require different therapies such as physical, occupational or speech therapy. These therapies aim to help them recover from specific medical or surgical conditions.
By offering inpatient rehabilitation care, we can provide our patients with a seamless continuum of care. With a better than average length of stay of 10-12 days, we also provide superior functional outcomes.

They work closely with other healthcare professionals, including physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists, to develop comprehensive treatment plans tailored to each patient's specific needs.
