The award is presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world’s leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.
The award recognized 280 leading inpatient rehabilitation facilities in 25 states and four regions. The Center for Rehabilitation at Wilmington Hospital ranked in the top five for the South region.
“We are incredibly honored to receive this recognition for the state-of-the-art and patient-centered care our inpatient rehabilitation team provides to our patients,” said Jennifer Thomas, vice president of Rehabilitation Services at ChristianaCare.
“We work together with our patients to reach outstanding outcomes and meet their goals for recovery from conditions such as brain injury, spinal cord injury, strokes, trauma and joint replacement. We are so proud of the incredible work of our team and our patients as we face those challenges together and get them back to living their fullest lives.”
To determine the best rehab centers, Newsweek examined three data sources:
- A national online survey of experts with knowledge of physical rehabilitation centers (physicians, physiotherapists, doctors, clinic managers and other health care professionals).
- Quality metrics data published by the U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS).
- Accreditation data on physical rehabilitation centers provided by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
For over 30 years, ChristianaCare’s 40-bed rehabilitation facility has provided the highest quality rehabilitation services in the state and among the best in the region. This innovative facility includes state-of-the-art equipment, the latest therapeutic technology and techniques and real-life skill simulation environments.
The Center for Rehabilitation has received CARF accreditation since 1993, ensuring it meets rigorous service, safety and quality standards. CARF-accredited specialty program area designations are ongoing for stroke, limb loss and brain injury.
