Inpatient rehab is required when patients require intensive (24-hour) therapy services and medical management. Inpatient rehabilitation is delivered in a specialized hospital that focuses on physical, occupational, and/or speech therapy. Care in this setting is coordinated by a doctor who specializes in rehabilitation medicine. Patients also receive care from nurses with specialized rehabilitation training who reinforce therapy goals in addition to managing the patient’s medical needs. The inpatient rehab length of stay is about 10-14 days. After inpatient rehab, most patients return home often with outpatient rehab or home health services.
The Amputee Program provides specialized evaluations and therapy for patients in the early post operative period, to assess the need for balance, and transfer training, as well as, wound and skin care. Strength, endurance, and mobility are all a focus. Learn more about Amputation Rehabilitation

Inpatient Rehabilitation Top Performer Award
Both Allied Rehab Hospital and Heinz Rehab Hospital received the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation’s (UDSMR) Top Performer Award. UDSMR is the largest third-party quality outcomes vendor in the inpatient rehabilitation industry. Each year, UDSMR compares to nearly 800 inpatient rehab providers in its national database on key quality measures including functional improvement (that is, how much better our patients get at being able to get around and take care of themselves) and the percentage of patients who return home after rehab. Facilities whose quality scores are among the top 10% of all providers each year receive the Top Performer Award. For the sixth consecutive year, Heinz Rehab Hospital made the list, scoring in the top 9% of rehabilitation hospitals nationwide. Allied Rehab Hospital earned the award for the ninth consecutive year (each year the award has been given), scoring in the top 2% of rehab facilities.
As a result of the evaluations by UDSMR, in 2013 Allied Rehab Hospital in Scranton came out as the top-ranked inpatient rehab facility among the 770-plus evaluated nationwide.

Do Allied Services rehab hospitals achieve results?
Our patients make significant improvements in important functional activities like being able to walk, get around, and take care of themselves. We measure our patients’ improvement in functional activities using a tool called FIM™. The charts below show FIM™ improvements achieved by our patients relative to national benchmarks.
How long will I stay?
The average patient stays with us for about 11 days. Patients receive at least 3 hours of therapy, 5 out of 7 days. The chart shown below compares the average length of stay for our patients compared to national benchmarks.
What happens after rehabilitation?
Upon discharge, about 76% of our patients return to their homes. However, whether a patient is able to return home depends upon the type and severity of each patient’s diagnosis and other unique circumstances. The next chart shows the percentage of patients who returned home immediately after their stay at one of our rehab facilities compared to national benchmarks.
