Admission Requirements at Atrium Health Floyd Medical Center
Our inpatient rehabilitation program is accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospital Organizations (JCAHO). It is also an approved Medicare program.
The primary goal of our program is to help patients achieve personalized goals and gain as much independence as possible. This includes helping you return to a home environment safely and as independently as possible. Because families are part of the rehabilitation team, family members may be asked to attend specific conferences and training sessions throughout your stay.
You must be progressing with therapy to remain in the program. You will be determined ready for discharge once your goals have been met or no additional improvement is anticipated.
