NOW OPEN

The Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation Hospital, a joint venture with Select Medical, is now open. The new 60-bed, adult inpatient rehabilitation hospital next to Cleveland Clinic?s Avon medical campus offers comprehensive rehabilitation treatment for patients with complex neurological, medical and musculoskeletal disabilities.

The 68,000-square-foot hospital features private rooms and the latest rehabilitation equipment to care for people with stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury and a variety of medical and surgical conditions. The hospital will also serve as a primary teaching site for a new residency program for physicians in physical medicine and rehabilitation beginning in July 2016.

?Our existing platform of rehabilitation has been taken to the next level through the combined expertise of our organizations,? says Frederick Frost, MD, chairman of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Cleveland Clinic. ?This beautiful new facility allows patients to access treatment that rivals any rehabilitation program in the United States.

Patrick Schmitt, DO, is the medical director for Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation Hospital. Dr. Schmitt most recently served as medical director of rehabilitation for Cleveland Clinic?s East Region and holds an appointment in the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and the Department of Bioethics.

This exciting new partnership has allowed us to develop comprehensive programs that reflect both the mission of Select Medical and Cleveland Clinic to provide an exceptional patient care experience that promotes healing and recovery in a compassionate environment,? says Dr. Schmitt. ?Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation Hospital is committed to Cleveland Clinic?s guiding principle of ?Patients First,? with a focus on comprehensive rehabilitation and a goal to maximize the health, function and quality of life of those we serve, ultimately returning those patients back to their homes.

Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation Hospital is an acute inpatient rehabilitation facility. Its patients will have close physician specialty care, including physicians trained in physical medicine and rehabilitation. Programming at the new hospital will take advantage of Select Medical?s experience partnering with its flagship hospital Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation in New Jersey. For at least a decade, U.S.News & World Report has named Kessler among the top 1 percent of the nation?s rehabilitation hospitals.

Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation Hospital will employ 200 clinicians and staff, and will draw patients from the region as well as from the large national and international population served by Cleveland Clinic,? says Sam Bayoumy, CEO, Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation Hospital.
