of the inpatient rehab unit, here at Henrico Doctors’ Hospital, Parham. On our Inpatient Rehab Unit,
patients will participate in Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Speech Therapy. Upon admission, all three
of these disciplines, or two of the three disciplines,
will be seeing the patient. And working with the

help develop a plan of care. This plan of care is put
together by Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech

and rehabilitation nurses in order to help patients
reach their maximal functional potential in order to return home. Some of our specialties include certified rehabilitation nurses. We have physical therapists
