Outpatient Rehabilitation

The Adult Comprehensive Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Program includes a 37-bed unit located within Advocate Christ Medical Center. We serve a diverse population of adults, 18 years and older, and have been accredited by CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) for more than 30 years.


Our interdisciplinary rehabilitation team includes experts who work together to personally individualize and coordinate a treatment plan for each patient. Physiatrists (doctors specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation), rehabilitation nurses, social workers, psychologists and therapists are highly trained in knowing how to help a patient with a disability maximize their skills and independence to live life to the fullest. We work with each patient and family when setting goals and discharge plans as both are a major part of the team. Nothing motivates us more than the gratitude of an appreciative patient and family who are able to navigate the challenges of a disease or injury with our assistance.

The rehabilitation program provides a daily physiatrist visit, 24 hour rehabilitation nursing, social services and therapy, including occupational, physical, recreational and speech therapy. Patients will receive a daily minimum of three hours of therapy Monday through Friday. At times a modified therapy schedule, including weekend therapy, may be used based on individual needs. A great advantage of our program is its location within Advocate Christ, which is a quaternary, medical center.
