Homeward Bound

  • There's no place like home, especially after a serious injury, illness or surgery. That's why SSM Health Homeward Bound partners with other health care facilities with a proven commitment to quality.

    Designed around the needs of the patient, SSM Health Homeward Bound serves individuals who either do not need or do not qualify for inpatient (hospital) rehabilitation, but are not quite ready to return home after a serious injury or illness.

    SSM Health Homeward Bound is part of an integrated network of rehabilitation services offered by SSM Health Rehabilitation Hospital. This means patients have convenient access to coordinated care for every rehabilitation need.

    By partnering with other health care facilities, we offer patients a unique combination of goal-oriented rehabilitation and medical care. SSM Health Homeward Bound gives patients access to the services of a skilled nursing facility, while offering care in a dedicated rehab unit.

    SSM Health Homeward Bound is designed to meet the needs of patients who:

    • are recovering from a serious illness, injury or surgery, including joint replacement, stroke and neurological conditions, spinal cord injury, brain injury, and general debility or weakness from disease or injury
    • can benefit from intensive physical rehabilitation - combination of physical, occupational and speech therapy
    • require 24-hour nursing care
    • are motivated to participate in a goal-oriented rehabilitation program
