Cleveland Clinic's Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation features an integrated academic practice model, linking the main campus with nine acute care hospitals, three inpatient rehabilitation hospitals, more than 50 outpatient therapy venues, skilled nursing facilities, long-term acute care hospitals and Cleveland Clinic's Center for Connected Care. This enterprise employs a fully operational disease-based rehabilitation care delivery system. All of the department's clinicians work side by side with the surgeons and medical specialists who share their subspecialty interests and expertise. Patients benefit from innovative rehabilitation strategies provided by a unified academic faculty, with access to the full range of specialty consultants, sophisticated laboratory and imaging resources and Cleveland Clinic treatment protocols and carepaths.
Committed to the concept of teamwork, the department features an inclusive leadership structure that engages all of the therapy disciplines in meaningful roles. This collaboration has allowed us to be able to provide approximately 700,000 rehabilitation visits each year. Clinical, research and educational services are supported ...by the nation's premier information management platform that advances an efficient and value-based rehabilitation brand.
The department's commitment to helping patients maintain good health and improve function extends through outpatient clinics, inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and consultation in skilled nursing facilities. The clinical staff is charged with teaching the principles of rehabilitation care to over 1,000 Cleveland Clinic residents and fellows, and to the medical students of Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine and Case Western Reserve University. Our Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Residency Program, inaugurated in 2016, is the capstone of this effort.
Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation Hospitals (Avon, Beachwood and Edwin Shaw) share a common medical faculty, common electronic medical records, laboratory and radiology systems, and a commitment to use Cleveland Clinic's size and resources to create efficient and effective treatment protocols that will define the future delivery of rehabilitation services in the United States.
The rehabilitation research team partners with colleagues of many medical specialties and scientific fields to investigate novel treatments and therapies. This work elevates the level of care that is provided to patients, and sets the stage for development of Cleveland Clinic rehabilitation brand regionally, nationally and internationally, with new facilities in Las Vegas and Abu Dhabi.
