Thank you for your interest in our Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital
Milwaukee Rehabilitation Hospital is a 40-bed acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital located in Greenfield, Wisconsin, serving residents around Milwaukee and surrounding areas.
In fact, our rehab hospital is the one of the only acute rehabilitation hospitals in Greenfield. While ideally, patients or their caregivers should never need to leave their personal communities for quality rehabilitation care, choosing the best rehab experience for you is more important than choosing proximity.
The Power of Inpatient Medical Rehab...
Recent medical studies definitively show that Inpatient Rehabilitation, often called an Inpatient Rehab Hospital or Facility (IRF), result in substantial improvement in the patient's physical mobility and ability to care for themselves.
For patients needing inpatient rehabilitation, nursing homes are virtually unregulated as to how rehabilitation services are provided. The absence of these critical regulatory standards leads to more varied and less intense rehabilitation treatment in the nursing home setting. The benefits can far outweigh the cost and result in stronger patients so they can get back to living their lives.

In Sandy's words, no two days look the same in her role and she greets each day with a smile.
Her advice to patients and caregivers seeking rehabilitation for themselves or loved ones - this is a premier inpatient rehabilitation Hospital; where I would want to go if I had rehab needs. The staff is great! She loves working with the patients and their families.
