Comprehensive healthcare services since 1982
We take great pride in our commitment to total patient care, professionalism, and respect, provided throughout the rehabilitation process, helping us restore, as fully as possible, the skills, confidence, and independence our patients need to return to a quality, satisfying life. We have helped thousands of patients return home after an injury or illness, which is illustrated by our superior clinical outcomes. Both our Pulmonary and Stroke programs are Joint Commission Certified.
Here at Bradford, we are equipped to provide complex medical treatments and procedures to patients who are acutely ill, have multiple complications and those who require specialty care and continuous monitoring, within our 35-bed LTACH unit.
Our 25-bed IRF unit is able to manage patients who require a more intense level of rehabilitation, which consists of 3 hours per day, up to 7 days per week.
Both our Pulmonary and Stroke programs are Joint Commission Certified.

Joint Commission Deemed Status
The Joint Commission is a national accrediting organization that has been recognized by The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), through a process called “deeming,” as having standards and a survey process that meet or exceed Medicare’s requirements.
What does “deemed” status mean?
Deemed status is a prestigious distinction that signifies that the hospital not only meets but exceeds standards set forth by both Joint Commission and CMS.
