Brain Injury

BI

At Penn State Hershey Rehabilitation Hospital, patients benefit from a highly specialized program that is tailored to the unique physical and/or functional limitations, cognitive impairments, and emotional or behavioral difficulties of the individual.

Our goal-directed approach helps brain injury patients to:

  • Maximize arousal and responsiveness
  • Develop new cognitive and behavioral strategies to compensate for any deficits
  • Improve physical function and mobility to enhance the skills needed to perform daily activities
  • Overcome the psychological and social problems that often interfere with the adjustment to an independent life at home, work and/or in the community

Stroke

Specialized

Research shows that early and specialized stroke rehabilitation can help to optimize an individual's physical and cognitive recovery and enhance quality of life. Studies also indicate that where a stroke survivor goes for treatment can make all the difference in his or her recovery. Penn State Hershey Rehab delivers a comprehensive program of medical, nursing and therapy care to successfully address the individual needs of each stroke patient. Our goal-directed approach to stroke rehabilitation tailors treatment to help patients:

  • Restore physical function and enhance the skills needed to perform daily activities
  • Build strength, improve balance and regain mobility
  • Improve speech and swallowing
  • Develop new cognitive and behavioral strategies to compensate for any deficits

Spinal Cord

Spinal Cord

We understand the challenges patients with spinal cord injuries face, and together, we will help you set goals, learn new skills, modify your lifestyle to fit your needs, and help you obtain the very best outcomes.

This goal-directed approach enables patients to:

  • Improve physical function and mobility
  • Develop the skills and strategies to perform daily activities
  • Utilize adaptive technologies that facilitate activities at home, work and in the community
  • Overcome the psychological and social problems that often interfere with adjustment to life ahead

Transitional Care

Transitional Care

Transitional Care at Penn State Hershey Rehab Hospital bridges the gap between the hospital's acute care setting and the patient's home, allowing for a smooth transition. This unit is designed to provide medical, nursing and therapy services to patients with the express purpose of "transitioning" them back to their prior living arrangements when possible.

The program allows patients to receive medically supervised therapy by highly trained physical, occupational and speech therapists in a comfortable, friendly setting.


Center for Wound Care

Wound Care

The Penn State Hershey Center for Wound Care offers an outpatient program focused on non-healing and chronic wounds. We utilize a team approach to healing by offering physicians who specialize in vascular, plastic and podiatry to provide a comprehensive plan for healing.

The wound care center specializes in treatment of:

  • Diabetic foot ulcers
  • Wounds due to vascular problems
  • Pressure ulcers
  • Other non-healing wounds

Outpatient Center

Outpatient

The Comprehensive Day Program at the Penn State Hershey Outpatient Rehabilitation Center offers individuals the advantages of living at home while receiving a combination of multiple therapies in a structured, supervised environment during the day. The goals of the program are to maximize personal and functional independence that reestablishes a daily routine and ultimately allows individuals to actively participate in community and life roles.

The Comprehensive Day Program may be an important next step in an individual’s continuum of care, transitioning from hospital to home. For other individuals, it may offer a vital first step in their rehabilitation.


Pediatric Rehab

Pediatric-Rehab

Our specialized 10-bed pediatric rehabilitation unit offers families a safe, secure, and emotionally supportive environment for our youngest patients. Our goal is to not only improve physical function, but to also foster children’s emotional well-being throughout their recovery.
