LSS The Good Shepherd is a leading provider of rehabilitation and post hospital skilled nursing care and services in Ashland, Ohio. Our clinical staff, led by on-site registered nurses, manages a state-of-the-art disease management program, which closely monitors a person’s primary and secondary illnesses to provide for a speedy and complete recovery. This program is critical to our ability to accept and care for individuals with more specialized needs. We offer customized person-centered nursing care for both residents and rehabilitation outpatients, which allows for collaboration with doctors, specialists, families and patients.

The Rehabilitation Center

Recovering from cardiac, orthopedic or neurological conditions and surgical procedures can mean a long journey of rehabilitation to restore activities of daily living and functional independence. Your recovery process can benefit from a short-stay in a private room on our Stratford Rehabilitation Unit, where patients receive customized rehabilitation services and the education they need to return home as quickly as possible. Outpatient physical, occupational and speech therapy is also available.
