Inpatient Rehab Visitation
Family is an integral part of the rehab process and immediate family/caregivers are encouraged to participate in a patient’s daily care and therapy as needed.
General visitation is open. However, patients are often in therapy during the day. Late afternoon or evening and Sunday visits are best. When in doubt, please contact the patient to ensure they will be available.
You can call the inpatient rehab nurse desk at 918-421-8063 with any questions you may have.
We are conveniently located in the heart of Southeast Oklahoma and serve the adult population who may have experienced a setback due to stroke, brain injury, hip fracture, joint replacement or severe debility due to illness or accident.
