Rehabilitation After A Stroke
Stroke is the leading cause of disability in the United States. At St.
Jude Medical Center, we’re proving it doesn’t have to be.
Our stroke recovery program has been accredited by
CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities), an independent,
international organization that promotes the standards of care for rehabilitation
programs. Accreditation demonstrates that a hospital's program represents
the highest quality, value, and optimal outcomes for the individuals served.
By bringing together experts in physical medicine and rehabilitation,
speech pathology, occupational therapy, speech therapy, neuropsychology,
and physical therapy, we are creating a level of care and comprehensiveness
that is second to none.
Recovery begins while a patient is still hospitalized, where board-certified
rehabilitation medicine physicians and an experienced team of nurses and
therapists help patients start to regain their independence. Our success
is evident in our outcomes: Over 95 percent of our patients return home
within three months of suffering a stroke
