Hospital setting improves access to care

Most patients spend about two weeks in the IRU, but you may stay for up to two months. Since the IRU is within the hospital, you have timely access to almost any medical service we offer — including 24/7 care from nurses who specialize in rehabilitation.

Because we offer complete care that’s customized for you, the IRU earned accreditation from CARF International, the leading agency assessing rehabilitation programs.


More than 1,000 people have received the IRU's specialized care, all geared toward helping them live as independently and fully as possible after a traumatic injury, accident, or illness. Read more in our Pulse article.
