Inpatient Rehabilitation

Tour Our Inpatient Rehab

Families and prospective patients may arrange a tour of our Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit by calling 573-331-6501 or 573-651-5551.

Southeast’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit uses state-of-the-art equipment and best practices rehabilitation philosophies to help patients regain their highest level of function so they may return home and to the community.

Often following a hip fracture, amputation or a neurological event such as stroke, back surgery and other debilitating illnesses, we find the slightest medical complication can hinder progress and cause you to miss a window of great opportunity in reaching your rehabilitation potential.

If the medical need is enough to keep you in the hospital, Inpatient Rehabilitation is an excellent way to optimize overall outcomes. It is perfectly safe to pursue early rehab as long as it is directed by our board certified physiatrist and monitored by our rehab nurses who have years of experience managing your medical needs while your therapy progresses.
