When admitted to SSM Rehabilitation Hospital, you are assigned a room and unit according to your diagnosis.
All patient rooms are located within a dedicated rehabilitation hospital, providing
specialized 24-hour rehabilitation nursing and medical care.
All rooms have a bathroom, television and telephone. Any mail or flowers sent to
you during your rehabilitation are delivered every weekday to your room. We also
encourage you and your family to personalize your room with photos and other items
that provide comfort and encouragement.
Other Hospital Services
Other services conveniently available to you and your family and visitors during
your rehabilitation include a hospital gift shop, a cafeteria, and chapel for private
visits and comfort. Catholic Mass and Sacraments are offered, as well as non-denominational
Sunday Services and weekly Scripture groups.
Family and visitor lounges, dining areas, and outdoor patios or spaces offer additional
areas to visit with family and friends, connect with other patients or participate
in group activities.
Tobacco use is proven to be a health hazard. Therefore, all SSM Rehabilitation Hospital facilities
have been designated tobacco-free environments. Tobacco use is not allowed in any
of the buildings or on the property where SSM Rehabilitation Hospital operates, nor at any SSM Rehabilitation Hospital
recreational function. Resources and information are available to patients who use
tobacco. Please talk with your physician or nurse.
