Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit

For more than 20 years, Grand View Health’s Inpatient Acute Rehabilitation Unit (ARU) has helped countless patients recover their strength, flexibility, mobility and overall functionality. Our team of dedicated rehabilitation specialists work around the clock to help our patients regain their independence and live healthier lives.

Our ARU provides comprehensive, personalized and flexible treatment plans to patients who have been harmed or disabled by illness, disease or injury. Our primary goal is to help our patients regain the ability to live and work independently. We thoroughly evaluate each patient that is referred and develop a customized treatment plan to help them recover safely and effectively.

The ARU includes 14 private rooms and is located on the third floor of Grand View Hospital. Qualified patients within the hospital can make a seamless transition to our unit, and we can easily arrange transfer for patients who are located at another hospital.
