At White County Medical Center’s inpatient rehabilitation, our goal is to assist patients in reaching their highest level of functioning and return them to their previous activities. We help patients return to home and independent living as soon as possible. Inpatient rehab treats neurological, orthopedic, and cardiac patients. The unit also offers a formal stroke rehabilitation program.
Physicians and staff members work with each patient and family to set individual goals. Patients come to the unit for intense physical rehabilitation: Patients spend at least three hours each day in therapy, which may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and recreational therapy. In addition to one-on-one sessions, patients also participate in group activities.
You may also have the opportunity to participate in activities like animal assisted therapy, horticulture therapy, quilting therapy, and gospel singings.
In a weekly meeting, the attending rehabilitation physician, all attending therapists, a social worker, and a representative of the rehab nursing staff review the patient's progress, discuss his or her current level of function, and revise the individual plan of care and goals for the upcoming week.
WCMC’s inpatient rehabilitation is a specialty unit. The facilities are located on the South Campus of White County Medical Center at 1200 South Main in Searcy. For more information, call (501) 278-3480.
