Orthopedic

Rehabilitation services are provided to patients who have orthopedic injuries or illnesses. This includes injuries and illnesses related to bones, joints or muscles. An experienced team of nurses, therapists and physicians provide services to inpatients. Nursing services are provided 24 hours each day, seven days a week.

The St. Luke’s team works closely with patients and their family to set realistic goals. We provide at least three hours of therapy each day to make sure every patient has the best care and best possible results to meet their goals.
