CENTER FOR ACUTE REHABILITATIVE MEDICINE AT HANOVER HOSPITAL
The Center for Acute Rehab provides intensive, inpatient, physical rehabilitation. Each patient works with a team of specialists including: rehabilitation physicians and nurses, occupational and physical therapists, respiratory therapists, dietitians, pharmacists, social workers and speech pathologists.
Individualized, structured, physician-supervised programs seamlessly coordinate with existing medical care. The combination of high-tech equipment with the support of our skilled, compassionate staff helps patients regain their maximum possible amount of independence. Our goal is to return them home to their community, confident in their improved skills and abilities.

Referrals to the Center for Acute Rehabilitative Medicine at Hanover Hospital may be made by a physician, insurance provider, family member, patient, or other concerned party. Call our 24 Hour Referral Hotline at 1.800.577.6812 to make a referral. We welcome your call.
Involving the Family
As with any lifestyle-altering event, attitudes and relationships with family members are affected. Shock, denial, guilt, anger, and depression are common. Serving as part of the rehabilitation team, our social workers help both the patient and the family to make necessary adjustments and learn to support one another.
Specialists also teach family members how to assist in the therapeutic process. Family will learn how to support the patient during their hospital stay, and how to continue making progress once he or she returns home to his or her community. Finally, this team finds appropriate resources to help continue the rehabilitative gains that have already been made.
