The Leon S. Peters Rehabilitation Center, located inside Community Regional, is an inpatient rehabilitation facility providing 24-hour nursing, physical, occupational, recreational and speech-language therapy to patients. Being a patient in the Peters Rehabilitation Center is the step between your hospital stay and going home. We're located within our Level 1 trauma center giving you access to all of the specialists and diagnostic equipment available at Community Regional throughout your stay.
You'll find comfort and privacy in one of our all-private rooms during your stay at the Peters Rehabilitation Center. Our therapists will care for you in our spacious treatment areas designed and equipped to meet the intensive needs of patients who’ve had neurologic or orthopedic limitations.
Evaluation and Treatment Plan
After admission you get a thorough evaluation so we can develop a personalized treatment plan that gets your independence back as soon as possible.
Training and Education
Helping you reach your highest level of functional independence is our goal. We also train your caregivers so you can be discharged home safely. Your caregivers will be expected to participate in training and education so they are prepared to help you care for yourself at home.
Rehabilitation patients also participate in a structured day of individual or group therapy sessions to reach their rehabilitation goals. You must have the ability to participate, tolerate and benefit from a minimum of three hours of therapy a day, five days a week. Patient and family participation in the rehabilitation program is essential when working toward the goal of achieving the highest level of independence.
Planning for Discharge
As you prepare to go home we’ll help you schedule follow-up appointments and with getting the necessary medical equipment and accessibility adaptations.
You may require further treatment after being discharged. If so, you'll be referred to one of our specialized outpatient rehabilitation services or home health services.
