HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital is home to the Advanced Rehabilitation Center (ARC), a unique therapeutic setting that allows you to receive intensive, comprehensive rehabilitation services along with inpatient medical care. At the ARC, we take a holistic approach to rehabilitation, meaning we care for you as a whole person—body, mind and spirit—during your stay with us. Your individual treatment plan is interdisciplinary in nature, including various forms of therapy, medical services, behavioral health services and family training and support.
The ARC often cares for people suffering from severe arthritis, strokes, head or spinal cord injuries, major traumas, major joint replacements, severe burns, amputations and severe fractures of the hip or leg. Patients are typically referred to the ARC by their physicians when their recovery plans includes at least two types of therapy (physical, occupational or speech) along with inpatient care for a medical issue. In addition, patients must be healthy enough to participate in three hours of therapy a day.
