Inpatient Services - Adult Rehabilitation

Inpatient Services - Adult Rehabilitation

The purpose of rehabilitation is to help the patient reach the highest level of function by preventing complications, reducing disability and improving independence.

Rehabilitation team members work with hospitalized patients to optimize their recovery from the acute phase of an illness, injury or surgery and to assist with safe and timely discharge.

There are 4 inpatient units with ‘designated’ adult rehabilitation beds in the region:

  • Royal Jubilee Hospital has a 24-bed Complex Musculo-Skeletal (orthopedic, amputee, medical, and surgical) Rehabilitation Unit
  • Victoria General Hospital (VGH 5N) has a 20-bed Neurological (stroke/brain injury) Rehabilitation Unit plus eight prehab surgical beds
  • Victoria General Hospital (VGH 5B) is an 18 bed Medical/Subacute Unit that has 9 designated Neuro/Rehab Beds
  • Nanaimo Regional General Hospital has 25 bed General Rehabilitation Unit

Smaller facilities also have rehabilitation for inpatients but do not have designated rehabilitation beds/units.

How to Get Referral
