The America’s Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers 2023 list highlights top physical rehabilitation centers from all US states. The nation’s top in-patient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) were identified based on the following data sources:
- National Online Survey: Thousands of medical experts (physicians, therapists, medical doctors, administration & staff working in physical rehabilitation facilities) were invited to an online peer-to-peer survey.
- Quality Score: Participants were also asked to rank the quality of care, quality of service, quality of follow-up care, and accommodations & amenities. Data published by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) was taken into consideration.
- Accreditation: Data on physical rehabilitation centers provided by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) and the Model Systems Knowledge Translation Center (MSKTC) were taken into consideration.
The 19 freestanding inpatient rehabilitation facilities are joint venture partnerships with regional health systems across the country. In each, Lifepoint Rehabilitation supports the day-to-day operations and delivery of rehabilitation care. The company also provides contract management support to acute rehabilitation units, operating more than 250 such units within hospitals and other therapy settings nationwide.
