Ranked in the Top 10% Nationally for Rehabilitative Care – It Matters!

Spartanburg Rehabilitation Institute ranked in the top 10% nationally for rehabilitative care, four years in a row (2014-2017).

The ranking is by the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR), a not-for-profit corporation that was developed with support from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation research, a component of the U.S. Department of Education.

The UDSMR ranks rehabilitation facilities based upon care that is:

  • Patient-centered
  • Effective
  • Efficient
  • Timely

This means that through services at Spartanburg Rehabilitation Institute, our patients are receiving the highest level of rehabilitative care available – without having to leave the area.

UDSMR, which administers the world’s largest medical rehabilitation database, provides common language and measurement tools to monitor patient results.

Through UDSMR, our hospital collaborates with peers throughout the United States to share information and establish best practices for patients. This helps us elevate rehabilitative care for everyone across the United States.

Advanced Stroke Certification

Spartanburg Rehabilitation Institute has received The Joint Commission’s disease-specific certification for stroke rehabilitation, which signifies the hospital’s dedication to developing better results for stroke patients. The award is given after a rigorous on-site review by an expert evaluator.

Amputee Rehabilitation Certification

Spartanburg Rehabilitation Institute is recognized nationally for developing better results for amputee patients. The hospital earned The Joint Commission’s disease-specific certification for Amputee Rehabilitation after a rigorous on-site review of the hospital’s compliance with national standards, clinical guidelines, and outcomes of care.

Amputation is when all or part of an arm or leg is removed surgically to treat an injury, disease or infection. After an amputation, an individual can face a difficult period of physical and emotional recovery. Rehabilitation following an amputation can enhance a patient’s recovery process and minimize functional disability. The goal is to help our patients reach the highest level of independence possible following an amputation so they can enjoy the highest quality of life possible.

Certification through The Joint Commission’s Disease-Specific Care Program is voluntary.
