Medical rehabilitation is a complex, interdisciplinary system of inpatient and outpatient therapies that is part of more complex system that includes emergent and acute care following catastrophic illness or injury as well as networks that provide long term services and support. This system and its components provide opportunities for a broad diversity of applied research studies. The targets of current research at RHI range from interventions to reduce disability to ways to better measure rehabilitation effectiveness to leading edge methods to evaluate patients and maximize their outcomes.
A program of research integrated with clinical practice that establishes RHI as a world class
neuroscience rehabilitation center.
As we continue to grow as a rehabilitation hospital and a leader in medicine and research development, RHI invites physicians to contact us about patients that could be eligible for rehabilitation and participation in our studies and medical advancement. The partnership between RHI and physicians is important in the continual effort to support and provide the best care for the patient.
