Why Choose Us for Inpatient Treatment
At Memorial Rehabilitation Institute, your care is both innovative and personal. Our 12,000-square-foot gym is equipped with some of the latest therapeutic equipment, including robotic technology for the treatment of various neurological conditions. In addition, our therapeutic simulated community provides an environment where patients can practice life skills such as a visit to a grocery store or library. Patients can practice getting in and out of a car and learn how to navigate through a one-bedroom transitional apartment. This allows patients and families to gain confidence in their ability to manage at home and in the community, while still having therapists and staff nearby.

Inpatient Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
We strongly suggest that you bring clothing that’s comfortable to wear, including sweatpants or slacks, loose shirts or tops, and a sweater or sweatshirt.

Our pharmacy department will review all your medications and work with your doctor to create an accurate list of all the drugs that you are taking. So please leave all medications and herbal supplements at home.
