Rehabilitation Services

Some of the most exciting things we do take place every day in our Rehabilitation Therapy Center. Our in-house therapists and nursing staff work as partners to treat patients who may have lost strength and mobility due to illness, trauma, or surgery.

It is easy to imagine the delight of both the therapist and the patients when that patient, who may have been incapacitated in one way or another, becomes increasingly independent through concentrated effort and care.

Our therapy department is led by the Rehabilitation Director who supervises a staff of other physical, occupational and speech therapists. These highly trained and certified therapists work exclusively for Newport Nursing.
