Within each of our lifetimes, it is likely we will need at least one rehabilitation service. Through acute physical therapy care, Medical Center of McKinney’s Inpatient Rehabilitation team approach assists patients in recovering from many types of injuries and illness. From stroke and arthritis patients to injured workers, our professional rehabilitation services help get patients back on their feet again.
MCM’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit provides comprehensive physical rehabilitation services as a continuation of the hospital’s full range of care.
Based on their individual abilities, patients are provided with the care and armed with the skills they will need to return to an independent lifestyle.

Admission to MCM’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit is based upon the individual’s demonstrated inability to perform self-care or mobility activities, and upon a reasonable expectation that the patient can increase his or her ability to function independently. There also must be a demonstrated need of medical necessity. Hemodialysis services are available on the Rehabilitation Unit.
Patients may be referred to the MCM Rehabilitation Unit by several sources which include:
- Discharge planners
- Allied health professionals
- Third-party payors
- Family, friends or self
- Social service professionals
The multidisciplinary team will develop an individualized treatment plan to help the patient become as independent as possible in the activities of daily living, including mobility and homemaking skills, as well as facilitate re-entry into the home and community. Specific goals may include:
- Increasing physical and cognitive function to the maximum possible level
- Improving the individual’s functional communication abilities
- Ensuring maximum mobility and safety with adaptive equipment necessary
- Increasing independence in self-care skills and homemaking levels to their maximum
- Providing knowledge of available community resources to smooth the transition to home and community
The patient’s role becomes that of an active participant in learning how actions, choices and attitudes affect the neurological condition and learning techniques to manage the condition.
