Every patient at Fletcher Allen Inpatient Acute Rehabilitation is cared for by a team of rehabilitation experts. Our doctors, nurses and therapists have advanced training in rehabilitation, enabling them to customize a care plan for each patient’s unique needs. Our patients benefit from participation in acute rehab: intensive therapy five days a week and daily consultation with a physiatrist (a medical doctor who specializes in rehab).

Our rehabilitation facility offers a comfortable 34-bed facility with private rooms. The program is individualized to the needs of the patient, and the focus is on helping people to achieve a level of independence to safely leave our acute care setting and continue his/her recovery at home or in some instances, at a subacute pace.
Our rehabilitation program is appropriate for people who require 24-hour physician availability, 24-hour nursing care, and the skill of at least two different therapies, and can tolerate at least three hours of therapy for five days a week.
