Rehabilitation is important for a patient’s transition from a care environment to their home, yet it may be a neglected part of a patient’s treatment. At National Park Medical Center Rehab, we want feeling better through rehabilitation to be a way of life.
The NPMC Rehab unit offers flexible, custom-designed treatment programs for individuals who have been disabled by injury. It is our mission to provide comprehensive rehabilitation services of the highest quality in order to improve the functional independence of those we serve.
The NPMC Rehab program provides services for patients who have suffered functional loss due to a disabling illness or injury including:
- Stroke (CVA)
- Congenital deformities
- Major Multiple Trauma
- Brain injury
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Orthopedic Dysfunction
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Parkinson’s Disease

When entering the NPMC Rehabilitation unit, patients are allocated a team of professionals to help them regain their independence as soon as possible. Within their own unique rehabilitation program, individuals are given the support of the Medical Director, rehabilitation nurses, physical, occupational, recreational and speech therapists, social workers, psychologists, family physicians, spiritual services, family members and rehabilitation support members.
Family education and training are an important part of the program. Family members and caregivers through the program can learn:
