Rogers Inpatient Rehabilitation Services

Mercy Rehabilitation Services - Northwest Arkansas offers premier inpatient rehabilitation services in a dedicated acute rehabilitation unit. 

Our acute rehab hospital is designed to assist patients who have recovered from the acute phase of an illness or injury but still need 24-hour physician management and nursing care in addition to rehabilitation services. 

Patients who may benefit from acute inpatient rehab services include those who have had a: 

  • Stroke and other neurological impairments 
  • Complex fracture 
  • Multi-injury accident 
  • Amputation 
  • Head injury 
  • Spinal Cord Injury 

Patients with other disabling injuries or illnesses will be evaluated for admission to the inpatient rehabilitation unit to determine if the patient meets rehab admission criteria.

Why Acute Rehab vs Skilled Nursing Facility

Research has shown that acute inpatient rehabilitation can result in better patient outcomes than if a patient was discharged or transferred directly to a skilled nursing facility. Benefits of inpatient acute rehabilitation include: 

  • Immediate access to emergency care if needed 
  • More hours (15 hours a week) dedicated to comprehensive rehabilitation therapy than a traditional skilled nursing facility or sub-acute rehabilitation unit 
  • No transfer to an outside facility for hospital diagnostic or ancillary services (which occurs in other rehabilitation settings) 
  • 24/7 physician medical coverage and rehabilitation RN nursing care 
  • 24-hour pharmacy services 
  • Specialized onsite services, such as skin and wound treatment as well as orthotic and prosthetic services
