Our Approach

We are one of two accredited Stroke Specialty Centers in the state of new Mexico. We also have received our 3rd straight 3 year general accreditation from CARF International- the highest accreditation level provided by this organization. As such, we pride ourselves in providing consistently excellent, evidence-based care to all of our patients.

Process and services

All patients are provided with in-depth assessments by healthcare professionals which may include:

  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians (as well as daily consultations by internal medicine physicians)
  • Occupational therapists
  • Speech and language pathologists
  • Physical therapists
  • Mental Health Counselors
  • Dieticians
  • Respiratory therapists
  • Case managers

Care plans are personalized and collaborative with weekly meetings to help determine services and equipment needed to ensure your recovery beyond inpatient rehab is safe for the patient and his or her loved ones.

Patients and their families are highly encouraged to attend our research-based education presentations (known as Stroke Class), which occur every Tuesday from 2:00-2:30 PM and Thursday from 2:00-2:30 PM (see our flyer which highlights some of the focus topics offered during these classes).

State of the art equipment is utilized within our rehab facility, including Vital Stim electrical stimulation units to promote improved swallowing for those recovering from dysphagia (or difficulty with swallowing), as well as our new overhead body weight support system, the Zero G.

Patients and families are also encouraged to attend our monthly Stroke Support Group, led by a speech and language pathologist and a counselor. Several community members are regular attendees at this support group, and patients and families are encouraged to continue to attend the group beyond discharge.
