We’re here to help

An illness or chronic condition may leave you weak and lacking the strength, skills and energy to perform everyday tasks. You may have balance, walking or speaking challenges, as well as cognition and memory issues.

Our medical rehabilitation specialists understand these difficult and frustrating situations. We offer advanced treatment, strategies and support to restore strength, endurance and abilities.

  • Conditions we treat

    Our experienced rehabilitation teams treat patients recovering from a wide range of medically complex conditions, such as:

    • Cardiac transplants, including the utilization of ventricular assistive devices
    • Congestive heart failure
    • Cardiac bypass surgery
    • Cancer
    • COVID-19
    • Post-surgical care for coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG), abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) repair, left ventricular assistive device (LVAD) implantation and other cardiovascular procedures

    • Frailty from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema and asthma

    OhioHealth Rehabilitation Hospital draws on the expertise of medical rehabilitation specialists to address the range of physical and functional issues that occur from medically complex conditions.

    In addition, family members are an important part of the care team. They may be asked to participate in therapy sessions to understand and support your needs.
