Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation
Marianjoy’s Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Program is a journey through a continuum of care that begins before a patient arrives at Marianjoy, continues through our inpatient setting and may include rehabilitation care at one of our subacute facilities or our outpatient program. We also provide extended support after formal rehabilitation is completed.
Marianjoy’s Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Program typically treats patients with spinal cord injury resulting from:
Marianjoy's goal is to provide exceptional, compassionate and individualizes treatment to assist the patients and family in rebuilding their lives. Our experienced staff has dedicated their lives to improving the outcomes of patients with spinal cord injury. At every level of care, patient needs and goals are our focus. We pride ourselves on our interdisciplinary approach, where our team works together to optimize the patient’s performance.
Families are encouraged to visit and have scheduled times to meet with the treatment team to review the patient’s progress and to learn how to provide care for the patient. Staff support and encourage family participation in the patient’s care. We provide an abundance of printed materials that also help educate patients and families about their needs. Patient and family education are a vital part of the care we provide in preparing our patients to move on to the next level of care.

Levels of Care
When patients leave Marianjoy, they may transition to one of several other treatment programs. Our goal remains to help every patient become as independent as possible. After an inpatient stay at Marianjoy, a patient may continue rehabilitation at one of our subacute care sites, day rehabilitation program, or comprehensive outpatient programs.
Even after patients complete formal rehabilitation, Marianjoy offers resources to help individuals continue their progress, including support groups and individual consultations. Our goal is to remain a valuable resource for every patient who comes through our doors.
Attending and consulting physicians are not employed by Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital, but are independent physicians with privileges to provide services to patients at our facilities. The attending physicians are employees of Marianjoy Medical Group, a separate corporation from the hospital.
