Our inpatient pediatric rehabilitation unit in the Division of Rehabilitation Medicine is accredited by the Joint Commission. Since 1997, we have been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). In 2018, in addition to being accredited for our comprehensive integrated inpatient rehabilitation, pediatric specialty care program and brain injury specialty program, we also received accreditation for our cancer specialty and interdisciplinary pain specialty program. We are the first in the world to have a CARF accredited pediatric cancer specialty program, and the second in the world to have an interdisciplinary pain specialty program.
If your child requires treatment in our Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit, you will be admitted to Location A on the fourth floor. The unit is designed to involve your family in the rehabilitation process and provide follow-up instruction to community caregivers.
We will teach you skills to help you and your child get around better at home and at school. And we will provide follow-up care through outpatient clinics and therapy services. Family support is available through support groups that meet on a regular basis within the medical center.
