Transitional Rehabilitation

The newly renovated Transitional Rehabilitation Units (TRUs​) at Canterbury Place provide short stay rehabilitation designed to meet the needs of patients being discharged from the hospital but who are not quite ready to return home.

Board-certified physicians and specialty-trained therapists help patients recover from surgery, accidents, and illness, and return home more quickly.

The TRUs consist of private rooms.

The Heart and Vascular Institute Transitional Rehabilitation Unit (HVI-TRU) is a partnership among UPMC Senior Communities, UPMC Rehabilitation Institute, and UPMC's Heart and Vascular Institute and is housed on the second floor of Canterbury Place. The HVI-TRU is tailored to complex cardiology and cardiac surgical patients in need of short-stay rehabilitation.
