Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit

Glens Falls Hospital’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit is designed to maximize the independence of patients recovering from the disabling and debilitating effects of illness or injury. The goal of this program is to return patients to their homes at the high possible level of functioning.

The unit is located within Glens Falls Hospital, proving close proximity to all of the services the hospital has to offer. Physicians are able to follow up with their patients while they are receiving rehabilitation services.

Our rehabilitation team offers personalized, comprehensive care to patients recovering from, but not limited to:

  • Stroke
  • Spinal cord injury

Patients typically stay between five and three weeks in our 15-bed Center, receiving approximately three hours a day of physical, occupational and speech therapy to help them perform basic activities such as eating, dressing and grooming tasks without assistance.

Our Center features semiprivate rooms with adapted bathrooms, a dual-use dining room, therapeutic kitchen, a welcoming lounge and visits area, a day room featuring a computer with internet access for patient use and a therapeutic tub and shower that mimics a home environment.

Our therapists utilize our therapy gym and an array of equipment and technology to help meet their patients’ needs. Equipment and technology include: floor mats, parallel bars, a Nintendo Wii and a Lite Gait, which help patients gradually put weight on their lower extremities.
