Dr. Z has been a great addition to our team. He is great with the patients, always speaks with the therapists directly and routinely follows up, as needed. The program is running very smooth here, thankfully!

Bring acute level care to your sub-acute setting—at no cost to your center.

Our physiatrists become highly visible, hands-on members of your team, working alongside your primary care staff. Together, we create, implement and document the need for multidisciplinary plans of care for each patient.

This is the kind of care your patients deserve—and would be getting if they had more time at the hospital.
