Lifepoint Rehabilitation brings its personalized inpatient care model to the new facility, focusing on acute rehabilitation and recovery for patients who suffer from stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, complex neurological disorders, orthopedic conditions, multiple traumas, amputation and other injuries or disorders.

“We are pleased to welcome patients to UC Davis Rehabilitation Hospital as we bring our evidence-based framework for inpatient rehabilitation care to the Sacramento community,” said Russ Bailey, President of Lifepoint Rehabilitation. “We know that high-quality, patient-centered inpatient rehabilitation care has a profound impact on the lives of those recovering from illness, injury and surgery, as well as those managing chronic conditions. Ultimately, our goal is to ensure our patients return home to their families and resume their normal daily activities more quickly. We look forward to continuing this important work alongside UC Davis Health as we advance our mission of making communities healthier.”

The facility is outfitted with leading-edge amenities and adaptive units, including a 12-bed brain injury unit and four private rooms for bariatric patients.
