We also offer therapeutic recreation for eligible patients. Our mission is to provide superior therapy services to all persons referred in a compassionate, competent and effective manner, ever mindful of each patient's dignity and individuality.

Our multidisciplinary therapy team provides comprehensive rehabilitation and support services in a patient-centered environment with individualized therapy treatment for the following services:

  • Rehabilitative acute care
  • Inpatient rehabilitation
  • Outpatient services
  • Home care therapy & rehabilitation

Collaboration with Shirley Ryan AbilityLab

UChicago Medicine has entered into an agreement with Shirley Ryan AbilityLab to enhance and expand upon our current physical medicine and rehabilitation services. Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is the premier rehabilitation hospital in the country and has been ranked the “No. 1 Rehabilitation Hospital in America” by U.S. News & World Report every year since 1991.

A dedicated team from Shirley Ryan AbilityLab — including physiatrists (physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians) — now leads the administrative and clinical oversight of the therapy programs offered throughout the UChicago Medicine enterprise. This includes the inpatient rehabilitation unit, acute therapy and outpatient therapy at Ingalls Memorial Hospital and acute and outpatient therapy in Hyde Park. In addition, our physiatrists provide consult service at Ingalls Memorial Hospital and University of Chicago Medicine and will soon be adding consult service at Comer Children Hospital.

I look at every patient as a part of my family. And I think of it as if what if my mother was in the hospital or what if my sister was in the hospital, how would I treat them?

They try to put you back where you need to be and they'll be very pleasant to work with.
