Achieving Independence

The rehabilitation process is a cooperative effort, shared by the patient, the patient’s family, and the interdisciplinary treatment team. At MidHudson Regional Hospital we are committed to maximizing the quality of each patient’s life and to reinforcing the therapeutic approaches that will facilitate independence.

Physical Rehabilitation

The Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Program at MidHudson Regional Hospital offers the most up-to-date and comprehensive rehabilitation treatment available in the region. Rehabilitation is a learning process that involves not only physical restoration, but emotional, psychological, and social adjustments for both the patient and the patient’s family. With treatment that focuses on the whole person, our team of medical professionals customizes a rehabilitation plan for each patient.
