What to Expect

We’re here for you and our focus is to provide the appropriate level of care to help you reach your maximum potential.

We offer three hours of therapy, five days a week, with additional therapy offered on weekends. Visiting hours are from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., seven days a week. Please keep in mind that our patients are periodically in and out of their rooms throughout the day. Here is what you can expect on a typical day at Mercy Rehabilitation Hospital:

  • Mornings, patients prepare for their first rehab session, receive scheduled medications, have vital signs recorded, get assistance with personal hygiene, dress and have breakfast.
  • After the first rehab session is done, it’s time for lunch. We encourage patients to come to our dining room to have lunch, but they are more than welcome to have lunch in their rooms and get some extra rest before going to their afternoon therapy session.
  • Afternoons, patients participate in their second rehab session of the day. After therapy is completed for the day, patients are assisted back to their rooms for additional rest prior to dinner.
