Acute rehabilitation services
Recovery from serious illness or injury often requires intense physical, occupational and speech therapy. Once a patient is discharged from the hospital, this intensive level of therapy may best take place in an inpatient rehabilitation unit such as Providence Acute Rehabilitation Center (PARC) in Portland. Acute rehabilitation services are also available in southern Oregon at Providence Medical Medical Center.
