Transitional Rehabilitation Units

UPMC Content 3

A partnership between UPMC Senior Communities and the UPMC Rehabilitation Institute, our newly renovated Transitional Rehab Units (TRUs) provide short-stay rehabilitation designed to meet the needs of patients being discharged from the hospital 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.

As part of the UPMC Rehabilitation Institute, the TRUs:

  • Promote a safe and timely transition for short- term rehabilitation patients as they progress towards their discharge home.
  • Provide individual patient-focused rehabilitation services.
  • Promote quality care and provide continuity of treatment plans.
  • Promote appropriate utilization of patients’ health care benefits.

To refer your patient to one of the UPMC Rehabilitation Institute’s TRUs, call the Central Admissions Office at 412-688-3900.
