The Center for Medicare/Medicaid Services (CMS) evaluates the quality of inpatient rehabilitation programs by reviewing the Program Evaluation Model (PEM). The PEM measures physical improvement of skills (such as eating, dressing and walking), discharge to community and functional efficiency. Functional efficiency measures the average improvement that is made by patients each day in rehab.

We’re proud to say our inpatient rehabilitation programs’ clinical outcome scores are greater than the national average and we exceed the national average in getting patients home safely.
