Inpatient Programs

Mary Free Bed's inpatient programs specialize in adult brain injury, spinal cord injury or disease, pediatric and adolescent programs, stroke, and orthopedics. We also see other diagnoses such as amputations, multiple fractures, neurological and neuromuscular disorders, multiple sclerosis, general deconditioning, Guillain-Barré syndrome, and West Nile virus, among many others.

Outpatient Programs and Specialty Services

When you no longer need intensive inpatient rehab care, you may be referred to in-home care or to the Mary Free Bed Outpatient Therapy Center. Right here on Mary Free Bed's campus, comprehensive outpatient therapy, with direct physiatry involvement, is available to pediatric and adult patients. To meet your needs, our multi-discilpinary teams work with you to tailor a treatment plan. With thousands of patients seen every year through Mary Free Bed's outpatient center and specialty programs, our health professionals have the experience you need to help you get back to living.

Outpatient programs require a physician's prescription for treatment. Patients must be able to tolerate treatment and have transportation to the Mary Free Bed Outpatient Therapy Center. Once a prescription is received and insurance coverage verified, the patient is contacted to schedule the initial assessments.

Clinic Services

Once your inpatient stay at Mary Free Bed is complete, your doctor may want to follow up with you in the Mary Free Bed Rehabilitation Hospital Clinic. The clinic is multidisciplinary and comprehensive, so in addition to the doctors and nursing staff, other specialty areas are available, if you need them.

Clinic referrals may be initiated by doctors, hospitals, school staff, parents, public health nurses, and case managers. You needn't have been a Mary Free Bed inpatient to be seen in our clinic.

Clinic hours are 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Visits are by appointment only. Primary medical care and emergency room services are not available.
