Rehabilitation Process

Injury Prevention

Because many injuries that require rehabilitation are avoidable, St. Joseph’s and Barrow are committed to injury prevention. Our skilled staff members offer events and programs to educate community members of all ages about stroke, fall prevention, water safety, concussions and more.  To learn more, call (602) 406-3868.

Acute Hospital Rehabilitation

Our acute therapy team evaluates patients who are in the hospital for acute, or short-term, conditions to determine whether rehabilitation is necessary and, if so, to create an appropriate treatment plan. Patients might be candidates for rehab if they exhibit:

  • Loss of mobility
  • Inability to perform activities of daily living
  • Diminished level of function
  • Speech or communication deficits
  • Cognitive impairments
  • Difficulty swallowing

Inpatient Neuro Rehabilitation

The Bruce and Deborah Downey Neuro Rehabilitation Center is a comprehensive inpatient rehab program for patients with severe neurological conditions, such as brain injury, spinal cord injury and stroke. Patients work with members of our interdisciplinary rehab team to develop the skills and independence necessary to return to activities of daily living. To learn more, call 602.406.REHAB (7)342.

Outpatient Rehabilitation

Outpatient Rehabilitation provides ongoing treatment for patients discharged from the hospital, the inpatient rehabilitation program, or by referral from the community. With an emphasis on patient and family participation, outpatient rehab aims to increase independence by helping patients reach their maximum level of function. To learn more, call 602.406.3230.

Center for Transitional NeuroRehabilitation

The Center for Transitional NeuroRehabilitation (CT)N is a unique program for adolescents and adults with brain injuries who are transitioning to home, work or school. CTN is an intensive outpatient program that provides patients and family members with the skills, education and support needed to maximize their independence and productivity.  To learn more, call (602) 406-3473.

Barrow Connection
