Acute Care Rehabilitation at Our Hospitals

In the event of a major injury, surgery or illness, each of Atlantic Health System’s hospitals – Morristown Medical Center, Overlook Medical Center, Newton Medical Center, Chilton Medical Center, Hackettstown Medical Center and Goryeb Children’s Hospital – provide expert inpatient rehabilitation services, as referred by the patient’s physician. 

Our highly-experienced teams of physical, occupational and speech therapists collaborate with physicians, nurses, social workers and other caregivers in early functional recovery. Through precise evaluation and individualized care plans, they provide patients with the first step towards an independent and pain-free lifestyle. 

Treatment at this stage may include functional training, strengthening and positioning exercises, neuromuscular re-education, cognitive and communication training, diet management, and assistive device recommendations, as well as patient and family education.

What’s more, we can assist in choosing rehabilitation services after the hospital stay is over.
