Acute Stroke Rehabilitation

Centura Health offers an acute stroke rehabilitation program to give patients the strengths and skills they need to return to their highest level of function.

Having a stroke changes you, and often means that you must relearn and redefine how you live. That’s why stroke rehabilitation is one of the most vital phases of recovery for many stroke survivors. Centura Health’s multidisciplinary acute stroke rehabilitation program provides intensive physical therapy, occupational therapy  and speech therapy to give patients the strengths and skills they need to return to their highest level of function.
