Patient Resources

  • Your health and safety is our top priority. We are adhering to the guidelines issued by the CDC, particularly as it relates to large group gatherings, to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). All Penn State Health Rehabilitation Hospital support groups are cancelled until further notice.

    A significant part of one's rehabilitation process goes beyond the therapy services that they will receive. This includes patient resources that will assist the patient in their educational process. Such resources can include general orientation, referral to support groups or referral to various organizations, just to name a few.

    While at SSM Health Rehabilitation Hospital, our patients will have two primary sources for different resources that they might need such as information on support groups, community transportation or various referrals. The first such resource is your case manager who will be available to provide you with any resources that you might need. Secondly, a resource library exists both in our rehab gym available to you and your family as well as in our case management office.
