As one of our nation’s ﬁrst hospitals dedicated solely to rehabilitation, the mission of MetroHealth Rehabilitation Institute is to restore function, social participation and quality of life to persons with signiﬁcant disabilities.
Our approach delivers outstanding rehabilitation care, trains the next generation of rehabilitation clinicians and scientists, and discovers new knowledge that becomes part of our standard of care.
We treat the most complex rehabilitation patients in the region, many of whom are admitted through our Level I Adult Trauma Center and Adult and Pediatric Burn Center, and Joint Commission Comprehensive Stroke Center.
Our premier Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency Program; Spinal Cord Injury, Brain Injury and Pain Medicine Fellowships; and post-doctoral Research Fellowship provide outstanding training for our future physicians and scientists.
In partnership with Case Western Reserve University and the Louis Stokes Cleveland Veterans Affairs Medical Center, we are in the forefront of innovation and discovery that attracts research participants, clinicians and scientists from across the nation and internationally.
We look forward to working with you as we serve the northern Ohio community and the nation.
