Inpatient Rehabilitation

Inpatient rehabilitation at McLaren Bay Region, McLaren Flint, McLaren Macomb, McLaren Northern, and McLaren Oakland helps patients achieve their highest level of independence after serious injury, illness, or surgery.

We work together to develop goals that put you on the path to recovery. Each patient receives at least three hours of therapy on five or more days a week. We target strength and balance as well as cognitive and motor skills. The length of stay is individualized by what you need, your progress and your ability to participate. Our goal is to get you back home functioning as well as possible. We want you to be able to do your own activities of daily living, get in and out of a car or get back to what you love.
