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.
Here at Westborough, our 40-bed LTACH unit provides a hospital level of care that includes complex medical treatments and procedures for patients who are acutely ill and require a longer length of stay.
Our 25-bed IRF unit is able to manage patients who require a hospital level of care and a more intense level of rehabilitation, which consists of 3 hours of combined therapy per day, up to 7 days per week.
