Rehabilitation hospitals, aka inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, are a specific type of facility that provides rehabilitation to patients after certain acute care events such as a joint replacement, head injury or stroke, spinal cord injury, or cardiac events and procedures. They are different from skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) in that they provide intensive physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy, among other services.RelevancePatients entering a rehabilitation hospital must be able to participate in several hours of therapy a day to qualify for a stay. The goal of this type of therapy is to restore the patient’s mobility and ability to peform important tasks and functions needed for daily life and work. Medicare Part A will cover 100 percent of the cost of a stay in a rehabilitation hospital if the doctor overseeing the care feels the intensive therapy is necessary. The average length of stay in a rehabilitation hospital is 13 days.Source: The American Medical Rehabilitation Providers Association
