Medical Rehabilitation Center

Recuperating from an accident, major surgery or illness can be challenging and even life changing. When your doctor feels you need more recovery time as a patient, the medical rehabilitation team at CAMC is focused on helping you restore mobility and independence.

As one of only two hospital-based rehabilitation centers in West Virginia and the largest hospital-based rehab program in the state, you have on-site access to the comprehensive resources of our medical center, including laboratory, respiratory therapy, neurosciences and imaging services. It also means nursing staff are on site 24-hours a day, with 24-hour physician availability.

CAMC's Medical Rehabilitation Center offers a sophisticated array of services that are not available at other hospitals in the state. In addition, the center offers CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) accredited programs in stroke (adult), traumatic brain injury (adult and children), and inpatient and outpatient spinal cord rehabilitation (adult and children). Three major goals of rehabilitation in all of these programs are fostering functional independence, preparation for community re-entry, and preventing further disability.

Our interdisciplinary team includes the following:

  • Physiatrist
  • Rehabilitation Nurse
  • Psychologist
  • Physical Therapist
  • Occupational Therapist
  • Speech Language Pathologist
  • Recreational Therapist
  • Social Worker
  • Ancillary Support (Dietary, Respiratory Services, Counseling/Pastoral Care)

Patients at the center are recovering from a wide range of physical disabilities, including strokes, amputations, multi-system traumas, orthopedic injuries and neurological disorders. Our goal is to support activities that help patients integrate physical challenges into their lifestyle. We work closely with each patient's referring physician and family to set a plan for achieving the patient's goals. In addition, follow up visits to the attending physiatrist take place at the outpatient clinic where certified rehabilitation nurses assist with the delivery of outpatient care.

The Medical Rehabilitation Center is located at CAMC General Hospital along with CAMC's Neurosciences Center and Level I Trauma Center.
