Acute Rehab Unit

Mildred Rauth RehabCare Center offers comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation services to adults with medical conditions that produce a loss of function in mobility, cognition, or communication. Through the help of skilled professionals, patients are able to re-learn previous skills and develop new skills.

The PCRMC Acute Rehabilitation team recognizes the importance of privacy and independence for patients. Most of the 30 rooms on the floor are private patient rooms, and a Transitional Living Mini-Suite is available to help accommodate patients who are almost ready to go home. The Mini-Suite resembles a home environment with a private room, bathroom, small kitchen and living room to ease the transition from inpatient care to home. Living in the Transitional Living Suite for a few days helps build a patient’s confidence before returning home, and it is also a good final indicator that a patient is ready to go home.
