The Rehabilitation Center
Get back to what matters most...
The Rehabilitation Center at Dauterive Hospital is helping people get back to what matters most in their lives -- home, family, work, play or all of the above.
The first and only hospital-based, comprehensive rehabilitation program in the Teche Area, The Rehabilitation Center helps patients rebuild their lives after an accident, stroke or other incident and become independent with a greater quality of life.
The 12-bed unit located on the third floor of Dauterive Hospital features spacious rooms equipped with private baths, an "activities of daily living" kitchen area, gym, dining area and other treatment rooms.
The Rehabilitation Center, housed within an acute care hospital, has the ability to handle virtually any medical need that may arise.
The 5,500 square-foot Outpatient Department provides a full spectrum of services including strength, coordination and mobility programs, manual therapy, hand therapy, neuromuscular re-education, treatment of speech, cognitive and swallowing dysfunction and patient and family training.
Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation is designed to help people recuperate from conditions related to heart disease and respiratory problems.
All with acute medical guidance...
