The Rehabilitation Center at LSS The Good Shepherd


Recovering from orthopedic, cardiac or neurological conditions and surgical procedures can mean a process of rehabilitation to restore activities of daily living and functional independence. We offer compassionate and personalized in-patient care and therapy that promotes a successful recovery and return home. Your recovery process can benefit from a short-stay in a private room where patients receive rehabilitation services and the education they need to return home.

While at the Rehabilitation Center, the therapy team will be available to work with you up to 7 days/week.  The Good Shepherd has a spacious and advanced rehabilitation gym with all the necessary equipment to help with your therapy progression.  There is an additional space next to the gym that emulates a home-like atmosphere to help best prepare you for your return home.

The Rehabilitation Center also offers outpatient physical, occupational and speech therapy services. Home care services are available through LSS Home Health Care.
