Outpatient rehabilitation is used for people who are living safely at home, but require rehab therapy to help them live free of physical limitation or pain. Outpatient rehab is delivered at specialized centers, so people receiving this level of care are able to travel. In most instances, people require physical therapy; however, others may require occupational therapy, speech therapy, or some combination thereof. Usually, patients receive about 12-15 one-hour therapy sessions over the course of a four-week period. After Outpatient rehab, most people are discharged with no further services.

You may also contact the Joint Commission Office of Quality Monitoring to report a concern, or register complaints, about a Joint Commission accredited health care organization, by either calling 1-800-994-6610 or emailing a complaint at jointcommission.org.

To provide the best care possible for individuals suffering from a debilitating condition or injury, Allied Services provides a comprehensive, seamless continuum of rehabilitative care. Our outpatient programs are primarily for people living safely at home who have completed or did not require a post-acute inpatient stay, but require additional rehabilitative therapy to alleviate physical limitation or pain.
If a patient suffering from a debilitating condition or injury requires intensive, around-the-clock nursing and/or therapy services, but cannot tolerate or does not require the intensity of therapy delivered during an inpatient rehab hospital stay, or their insurance does not cover inpatient rehabilitation, they would be an appropriate candidate for a transitional or long-term stay at our skilled nursing facility. Conversely, if the patient requires 24-hour care and can tolerate the intensity of a stay at one of our rehabilitation hospitals, they would be best suited for a stay at one of our inpatient facilities.
At Allied Services, patient outcome metrics such as average number of visits, pain reduction, reduced function limitation, and likelyhood of recommending Allied Services to others, are among the best in the United States:
- 98% of our outpatient population reported that their overall rating of care received was either good or very good.
- 97% of our outpatient population reported that they would recommend out services to others.
- 93% of our outpatient population reported that they either had no pain or a decrease in their pain during their treatment.
Patients need a prescription from their doctor in order to enroll in the outpatient programs at Allied Rehab and Heinz Rehab.
