This type of specialized care resulted in their hospital becoming the first facility licensed as a rehabilitation hospital by the state of Colorado in 1968.

Inpatient rehab admission criteria


To participate in their inpatient program, patients must meet the following criteria:

  • It must be anticipated that the patient will make progress toward functional goals within a reasonable time frame.

  • The patient must require daily nursing and physician care.

Inpatient amputation rehabilitation


Starting a comprehensive rehabilitation exercise program following a surgical amputation is essential to the recovery process. Their approach to rehabilitation after amputation focuses on post-surgical and prosthetic therapy, ultimately helping their patients reintegrate into their daily activities.


Their amputation rehabilitation program focuses on:


  • Enhancing daily living skills
  • Maximizing independence
  • Regaining productivity


Preparing for a prosthesis


The period between the surgical amputation and the fitting of an artificial limb (prosthesis) is referred to as the pre-prosthetic phase of rehabilitation. The goal of this phase of rehabilitation is to heal, build strength, control pain, enhance independence and prepare for the prosthesis fitting.

After the prosthesis fitting, they educate the patient and their family on proper prosthesis use, maintenance and care.


Inpatient neurological rehabilitation



They tailor their neurological rehabilitation treatment plans to meet the specific needs of their patients. Although participating in three htheirs of therapy per day is critical to success, rest and relaxation are also crucial components. Their team will build a daily plan that allows for rest periods in the patient's private room between sessions.


They provide rehabilitation programs for a variety of neurological conditions that include but are not limited to:


  • Aneurysm
  • Arteriovenous malformation
  • Brain tumor (cancerous and noncancerous)
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome
  • Huntington's disease
  • Meningioma
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Muscular dystrophy
  • Spinal disorders and injuries

As part of their mission to help their patients achieve maximum independence, They also work with regional organizations to provide restheirces and support to their patients. Their facility works closely with the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado, and They are an active supporter of the Rocky Mountain Stroke Association, serving stroke patients and their families.


Neuropsychological evaluations


Clinical neuropsychology is a medical specialty focused on brain function. A clinical neuropsychologist is a licensed psychologist with expertise in how behavior and skills are related to brain structures and systems.

They perform neuropsychological evaluations to help doctors and other healthcare professionals understand how a patient's brain is functioning.


Inpatient stroke rehabilitation


After stroke treatment, rehabilitation can help patients regain function and skills. Even though stroke rehabilitation does not reverse brain damage, rehabilitation can substantially reduce disabilities related to stroke and help people achieve the best possible long-term outcomes.

The inpatient stroke rehabilitation program helps patients:


  • Relearn to take care of personal needs, such as dressing, eating or bathing
  • Be safe in the home, including training for family members and caregivers
  • Relearn to use an affected arm and/or leg
  • Regain speech and thinking abilities
  • Cope with the life changes that stroke recovery often requires


Inpatient brain injury rehabilitation


Their inpatient brain injury program is designed for individuals who require 24-htheir nursing care, a physician to manage ongoing medical conditions and rehabilitative therapies.


Brain injury rehabilitation involves two essential processes:


  • Restoration of functions that can be rehabilitated to pre-injury levels
  • Learning how to do things differently when functions cannot be restored to pre injury levels


Controlled Stimulation Unit


Patients with brain injuries can often be highly sensitive to stimulation. Stheirces of stimulation can be TV, radio, phones, other electronics, lighting or too many visitors. Because of this, they follow low stimulation guidelines for patients recovering from traumatic brain injuries.

Additionally, they are home to the only Controlled Stimulation Unit (CSU) in the state of Colorado. Their CSU was specially designed to optimize the brain’s ability to heal during this important time in the recovery process.


Inpatient orthopedic rehabilitation


Many patients are unable to go directly home after an orthopedic surgery. These patients can benefit from their inpatient orthopedic rehabilitation program, which helps restore strength, mobility and the ability to perform activities.
