Insist on the Best Inpatient Rehabilitation
If you or a family member is recovering from an injury or illness – such as a stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury or multi-trauma – you deserve the best inpatient rehabilitation available to return to the people and activities you love more quickly and with more function and independence. You have the right to choose your rehabilitation provider, so insist on the best.
Why should you insist on Good Shepherd? Patients come to Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital (GSRH) from all across America to receive inpatient rehabilitation from the nation’s leading experts. Below are just a few of the reasons:
Good Shepherd Has More Technology for Mobility Recovery
GSRH is a national leader in the use of rehabilitation technology to help patients regain mobility. The organization is a clinical super-user of the Ekso bionic exoskeleton for spinal cord injuries and recently became the first health-care facility in North America to make Ekso with Variable Assist available for patients who suffer a stroke or other neurological conditions. The device allows Good Shepherd therapists to help patients get on their feet faster and regain the ability to walk more quickly.
Good Shepherd Has More Specialized Staff
Your recovery should be guided by experts who specialize in rehabilitation. Good Shepherd employs more rehabilitation specialists than any other provider in the region. We have the most:
- Physicians who specialize in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R)
- Therapists and nurses certified as Brain Injury Specialists (CBIS)

In addition, our hospital staff will coordinate care with your trusted family physician and other specialists for seamless continuity of care.
