The Company’s inpatient rehabilitation hospitals offer specialized rehabilitative care across an array of diagnoses. The majority of patients it serves experience physical and cognitive disabilities due to medical conditions, such as strokes, neurological disorders, hip fractures, head injuries, and spinal cord injuries, which are generally non-discretionary in nature and require rehabilitative healthcare services in an inpatient setting. Patient care is provided by nursing and therapy staff as directed by physician orders.
