Inpatient Rehabilitation Services

The Rehabilitation Services Department at Hurley Medical Center provides high-quality patient care that includes physical medicine management and one-on-one physical, occupational, speech and language therapy to patients from across Northeastern Michigan.

Our team of experienced physicians, therapists and nurses work collaboratively with patients and their families to help individuals recover—in body, mind and spirit—from acute illnesses, injuries and chronic conditions. We address the physical rehabilitation while ensuring self-esteem and emotional well-being are considered as the patient seeks to achieve a successful return to the community.

The 13-bed unit has a separate area for Brain Injury Rehabilitation, featuring physicians that are specialists in Physiatry and Neuropsychology that guide teams of therapists and nursing staff.
