University of Chicago Medicine's therapy and rehabilitation services specialize in the treatment of injuries and disorders — particularly those sustained by trauma, orthopaedic or neurological injury, burns, cancer or wounds. 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.

Highly skilled therapists design unique treatment plans for each individual's rehabilitation needs. Working with physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, social workers and other health professionals, we share a team approach to patient care. 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

Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities

CARF

The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities have accredited Ingalls Memorial for three inpatient rehabilitation programs: Stroke Specialty Program (Adult), Cancer Rehabilitation Specialty Program (Adult) and Hospital (Adult). We have state-of-the-art facilities that provide a wide range of therapy and rehabilitation, including acute inpatient rehabilitation.

Our latest accreditation is the ninth consecutive three-year accreditation from CARF that demonstrates that we meet internationally recognized standards and commit to continually enhancing the quality of our services and programs while focusing on customer satisfaction.

Collaboration with Shirley Ryan AbilityLab

UChicago Medicine has entered into an agreement with ShirleyRyan 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 programs offered at Ingalls Memorial Hospital in Harvey. In early 2020, the alliance with Shirley Ryan AbilityLab is expected to expand to support inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services provided on UChicago Medicine’s Hyde Park campus. The last phase of the collaboration will extend to Ingalls’ outpatient facilities in the south suburbs.
