Rehabilitation Programs

The Rehabilitation Services Department at Auburn Community Hospital provides high-quality inpatient physical, occupational and speech therapy and outpatient physical, occupational therapy care to patients that are in need of skilled services. Additionally, we provide dedicated rehabilitation services to patients recuperating or residing at our Finger Lakes Center for Living. The department’s priorities are to help patients be as independent and functional as possible while providing pain/symptom management to achieve their goals. We also provide screening and injury prevention techniques to reduce injury risk along with restoration of joint and muscle function to promote the healing of our patients in a caring and compassionate manner.
