Physical Rehabilitation–Miller-Dwan Inpatient

Every day, providers and patients put forth heroic efforts to amplify independence and hope.

Miller-Dwan inpatient physical rehabilitation is a place where hundreds of children and adults who have sustained a traumatic illness or injury are cared for each year. It is a place where people with diminished or complete loss of function learn to walk or use their arms again, to communicate visually or verbally, to swallow—to take on and conquer challenges that many people without disabilities take for granted.

A place of dedication, skill and compassion

Miller-Dwan Inpatient setting is known for its highly effective treatments and dedicated staff. It is accredited by CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) and ranked among the best in the United States for care.

Supporting Inpatient Physical Rehabilitation

Equipment and Programming. Advances in medical technology change rapidly. To provide the best outcomes for adults and children, cutting-edge equipment and programs are a must.

Education. Highly-skilled staff members are critical to an individual’s ability to get well, and ongoing training makes such expertise possible.

Independence. Being well again means living life to its fullest. Care extends beyond the walls of the medical center with activities designed to help adults and children integrate back into their communities and lives. They relearn everyday activities they participated in prior to their injury or illness, and have the opportunity to try new things that can become lifelong hobbies moving forward.
