Inpatient Stroke Rehabilitation:
The Good Shepherd Difference
Not all stroke care is the same! Good Shepherd's stroke patients receive better care and have better outcomes.
When it comes to inpatient rehabilitation for weakness, paralysis, pain, swallowing problems and other disabilities resulting from stroke, no one is more focused on getting you better faster than Good Shepherd.
Good Shepherd's specialized stroke medical team helps you recover your ability to speak, walk and take care of yourself as quickly as possible. Unlike nursing homes, rehabilitation is all we do. For short-term and long-term rehabilitation, choose Good Shepherd.
At Good Shepherd, stroke survivors get better stroke rehabilitation results in less time, and more stroke survivors go home - not to a nursing home - after discharge. Check out our latest patient outcomes for stroke, and see how they compare to similar facilities regionally and nationally.
