Transitional Rehabilitation Services

At the The Specialty Hospital at Rittenhouse, as you begin to grow stronger and prepare for the next step in your journey to recovery, our transitional rehabilitation services provide a therapy component that complements our four medical programs and focuses on increasing your overall function, strength, and vitality.

What to Expect

Transitional rehabilitation patients at the Penn Therapy & Fitness receive a mix of physical, occupational and speech therapies. The duration and frequency of therapy is adjusted on a patient-by-patient basis, to accommodate each person’s care plan, taking into account:

  • Medical status
  • Progress toward functional goals
  • Willingness to participate
  • Participation in daily life activities
  • Discharge destination 

The transitional rehabilitation services also serve as a bridge to other levels of care, such as inpatient rehabilitation, skilled nursing, outpatient therapy, or home health care. Through our transitional rehabilitation, we’re committed to work with you to help maximize your independence—one step at a time.

Who Can Benefit From Our Transitional Rehabilitation Services

As transitional rehabilitation patients build strength they begin to tolerate more physical, occupational and speech therapy. To officially move to our transitional rehabilitation services you must be able to tolerate one hour of therapy, 5 days a week, and have a discharge goal to either go home or to another level of inpatient rehabilitation.

Our patients are transitioning on the road to recovery from conditions such as:

  • Brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Progressive Central Nervous System (CNS)
  • Cardiac disease
  • Major or multiple trauma
  • Amputation
  • Stroke
