Comprehensive Rehabilitation Leader in Central Iowa
Younker Rehabilitation is a regional leader in the physical rehabilitation field, offering an acute inpatient rehabilitation hospital that can manage complex patient needs as long as it does not impede on the patient's participation in their rehabilitation plan. We serve our patients throughout their physical rehabilitation journey, from an inpatient stay to outpatient rehabilitation at our Younker Rehabilitation Clinic to physical therapy and physician care.
If the person served is cognitively unable to make decisions, a family member or legal representative must be identified to speak on the behalf of the person served prior to the decision for admission.
You and your family are the focus of our physical rehabilitation team. We know you have experienced a life-changing event and your family is important in your recovery. Beyond emotional support, family
members have the important role of learning exercises and other techniques to help you after you leave the hospital.
