About our program

Since 1990, the Lodi Health Acute Physical Rehabilitation Unit has offered thousands of patients the opportunity to recover from major illnesses or injuries and return home with their families.

We are centrally located at Lodi Memorial Hospital, between I-5 and Hwy 99 in Lodi, California.  Lodi Health offers the only acute-physical-rehabilitation facility in San Joaquin County and strives to exceed expectations with quality care, compassion and innovative equipment.  Our team of therapists and nurses offers specialized training and experience to facilitate recovery in patients with complex medical and physical conditions.  Our rehabilitation goal is to provide intensive and coordinated care to overcome patients' new challenges, maximize patients’ functional outcomes to regain independence, and ease the transition back to home or community settings.

Our program serves patients with:
  • Strokes
  • Amputations
  • Spinal-cord injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Guillian-Barre
  • Multiple traumas
  • Neurological disorders
  • Other complex conditions

The Acute Physical Rehabilitation Unit provides a physician who specializes in rehabilitation and sees each patient at least five days a week to update and manage the patient’s medical needs. The physician oversees the care and meets weekly with the interdisciplinary team to promote recovery to the fullest potential.  The team includes: rehabilitation nurse, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech/language pathologist, recreational therapist, social worker, nurse case manager, patient discharge advocate, respiratory therapist (as needed), and registered dietician.
