Stroke

Comprehensive care after a stroke

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each year nearly 800,000 Americans suffer a stroke. After this cerebrovascular event, it is quite common to be left with some type of disability.

For more than 60 years, Casa Colina has been at the forefront of care for individuals recovering from stroke, offering a nationally renowned continuum of care that includes acute hospital rehabilitation, short-term residential rehabilitation and day treatment, home and community services, and outpatient care. Patients are admitted to the level of care most appropriate to their health condition, and services are personalized to meet their unique needs.

Supported by the Casa Colina Research Institute, our experienced clinicians and residents-in-training combine cutting-edge methods with proven clinical pathways to help stroke survivors overcome the diverse challenges they face.

The Optimal Choice for Inpatient Rehabilitation

For some, stroke rehabilitation begins in our hospital’s Joint Commission-accredited, 68-bed Acute Rehabilitation Wing. Here, patients receive at least three hours of intensive therapy a minimum of five days per week from experienced therapists, many of whom are certified in neurological rehabilitation. Clinical teams meet weekly to discuss patient progress and map out the next steps of each patient’s recovery.

Our state-of-the-art inpatient facilities include:

Transitional Living to Prepare for Home

Our Transitional Living Center (TLC) is a 46-bed, CARF-accredited treatment facility offering clients recovering from stroke a bridge between inpatient rehabilitation and home. Residents undergo up to six hours of individual and group therapy, six days per week, to help them regain function and increase their independence.

For families traveling from a distance to be near their loved one during rehabilitation, we offer on-site housing on a first come, first served basis.
