Neurology Rehab Services

At Allied Services Integrated Health System, neurological recovery is a team effort. The interdisciplinary recovery treatment teams at Allied Services Rehab and Heinz Rehab’s neurological programs provide comprehensive care, physical therapy, and rehabilitation for individuals who have had a stroke or suffer from some other neurological disorder and are undergoing outpatient rehabilitation services.

Depending on each patient’s needs, treatment teams may include a neuropsychologist, a counsellor, a certified rehabilitation registered nurse, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech pathologists. After a thorough evaluation of abilities and limitations, the patient goals and expectations are developed with the professional team, patient and family to attain new levels of independence.

Continuum of Care

To provide the best care possible for patients recovering from a neurological disorder, 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 neurological disorder requires 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 which has many of the same rehabilitative therapies and techniques available.

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, which have award-winning specialty programs for stroke and neurological rehab, spinal cord injury, and brain injury.

After discharge, patients receive follow up appointments from a physiatrist.

Admissions & Referrals

Patients need a prescription from their doctor in order to enroll in the outpatient neurological rehabilitation program at Allied Services Rehab and Heinz Rehab. Insurance coverage for this program is provided by most health insurance policies.

For specific questions on how to obtain a referral or health insurance coverage, please call 570-826-3900 (Wilkes-Barre and the surrounding areas) or 570-348-1360 (Scranton and the surrounding areas).

Patients are admitted on an inpatient basis to the stroke and other neurological disorders program at Allied Services when they are medically stable and determined appropriate for a rehabilitation program. Referrals may be made by a private physician, general hospital, family member, or those who have been injured themselves.
