For Patients

At the UPMC Rehabilitation Institute, we provide our patients with comprehensive, inpatient and transitional rehabilitation services to meet their individualized needs.

  • Recover from injury
  • Restore function
  • Regain independence

Transitional Rehabilitation Services

Our transitional rehabilitation units (TRUs) are designed to meet the needs of patients being discharged from the hospital but who are not quite ready to return home. As part of the UPMC Rehabilitation Institute, the TRUs:

  • Provide individual patient focused rehabilitation services
  • Promote quality care and provide continuity of treatment plans
  • Promote appropriate utilization of patients' health care benefits
​Outpatient Services

Our outpatient services are designed for those people who need rehabilitation, but who can receive that care outside of an acute care or skilled rehabilitation center.
