Rehabilitation Services at Abrazo Healthcare, in Arizona

Arrowhead Hospital’s Rehabilitation Services department offers patients and their families comprehensive rehabilitation treatment and support. Our goal is to heal not just the body, but also the mind and spirit. We strive to help the patient return to a normal daily life as soon as possible.

Arrowhead Hospital Rehabilitation Services department is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). We provide physical, occupational, and speech Therapy in both inpatient and outpatient settings. We treat all patient age groups, including adolescents and the elderly. We also treat a wide range of injuries, ranging from cardiac and neurological to sports and orthopedic-related.

Our goal
We want our patients to return to functional living as soon as possible. We achieve this goal through:

  • Meeting patient needs
  • Using our strongest assets, both in people, facilities and equipment
  • Applying our process of evaluation, diagnosis and treatment to the individual

Our therapists
Rehabilitation therapists differ in their areas of evaluation, diagnosis and treatment:

  • Physical therapists evaluate and help improve patient mobility, strength and balance. 
  • Occupational therapists test and work on daily living skills, upper extremity strength and coordination.
  • Speech therapists assess and work to improve communication abilities, cognitive functions and swallow capabilities.

Our approach
The Rehabilitation Services staff work with a team approach, participating in interdisciplinary team rounds with case managers, social workers, dieticians, nurses and therapists all present or available to discuss each patient’s needs. As necessary, physicians and support staff are also present. All of our rehabilitation staff members use a holistic approach, helping to heal both the mind and the body.

Our process for care
Each step of our treatment plan is scrutinized and managed for the most accurate results. Below is a brief outline of our process. The steps are simple, but when followed, the results are long lasting:
