Horizons Hall is a 70 bed sub-acute rehabilitation unit which offers well-appointed rooms with Internet access, flat screens TV’s, and private bathrooms.

Horizons also houses a 3,000 square foot, state-of-the-art therapy gym furnished with various equipment used to increase function and independence including a treadmill, Nu-Step machine, standing table, parallel bars, and a recumbent bike. Therapists also use specialized equipment like the LiteGait system, which assists patients who must maintain a limited weight bearing status and maintains proper posture while training, and the SciFit Pro II upper/lower body ergometer, which offers bi-directional movement, resistance and a heart rate monitoring system. A full kitchen, full bathroom, and laundry facilities are also installed in the gym to help mimic realistic activities, further ensuring safety upon returning home.
The therapists come from a diverse background of providing acute, sub-acute, inpatient, and outpatient care. Some have even worked at top research rehabilitation centers. The expertise of our staff is complemented by years of experience, with each therapist holding anywhere from 10 to 20 years of practice and specialization.
Rated “excellent” in patient satisfaction surveys, the therapy department is committed to assisting patients in reaching their goals. Therapists achieve excellent outcomes by providing personal attention to each patient, addressing functional transfers and mobility issues, practicing “everyday” activities, and providing patient/caregiver education to ensure success upon discharge. “Family meetings” are arranged with our therapists along with our social services department to discuss patient’s progress and answer any questions or concerns families may have regarding the patient’s rehabilitative goals. The rehabilitation team includes a Physiatrist who visits twice weekly to medically oversee the rehab program and ensure patient recovery. Programs run 7 days a week and include occupational, physical, and speech therapy.
