The Rehabilitation Center


Therapist plays game with patientChildren's 18-bed inpatient rehabilitation center is accredited as a pediatric specialty program by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) – making it one of three in the state and the only one in Northern California that has a rehabilitation center with this designation. This accreditation acknowledges stringent national standards for programs offering comprehensive medical rehabilitation services.

As part of the rehabilitation team, your child and family are involved in the development and ongoing reassessment of the child's treatment plan. We work closely with you to help you understand your child’s special needs with the goal of successful transition back to home, school and community life.
Board certified physiatrists direct the care of patients in the inpatient rehabilitation center, with consultation available from other physician subspecialties. Counseling is provided by social workers, clinical psychologists and neuropsychologists.

Our expert team offers comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care featuring physical, occupational and speech/language therapy services.

FYE 2012  Inpatient Rehabilitation Center Demographic Information

Inpatient Rehabilitation Center Outcomes

Outcomes in the inpatient rehabilitation unit are measured by a software system called the FRESNO (Functional Rehabilitation Evaluation of Sensori-Neurologic Outcomes), developed by an interdisciplinary research team at the Hospital. The tool clinically assesses children and adolescents with disabilities regarding motor, self-care, cognition, communication and socialization.

FRESNO Outcomes

As part of an ongoing process to improve patient care and satisfaction, the parents and/or caregivers of our patients are given the opportunity to provide us feedback. Upon discharge of the patient, the parent/caregiver receives an exit survey to complete.
