Passport to Independence
During Sept. 20 – 26, HealthSouth hospitals around the country celebrate National Rehabilitation Week with the theme “Passport to Independence.” Together, our team of experts, state-of-the-art technologies and individualized therapy plans, can make a world of difference in helping our patients reach their goals and arrive at their destination of independence.
Whether patients have endured stroke, amputation, arthritis, brain injury, joint replacement, multiple trauma, neurological disorder or spinal cord injury, our customized passport to independence can get them back to the things they love like spending time with family, playing a round of golf, gardening, cooking and traveling.
Case managers, occupational therapists, physical therapists, rehabilitation nurses, rehabilitation physicians*, respiratory therapists and speech-language pathologists lead our patients to all of the stops on their journey to independence and create a therapy plan that is customized to meet each patient’s needs.
National Rehabilitation Week was established in 1976 to create awareness of people with disabilities and promote the benefits of rehabilitation. In 1990, a presidential proclamation designated the third week of September as National Rehabilitation Week, which has grown to include more than 7,000 organizations.
*We provides access to independent private practice physicians, specializing in physical medicine and rehabilitation.
