Restore Ability and Return to Activity

Rehabilitation ServicesThe J. Leonard & Myra Levy Family Rehabilitation Department offers comprehensive, world-class rehabilitation services to patients of all ages. We are committed to working with patients and their families in a safe environment focused on results. Our expertise allows us to treat much more than pulmonary or immune system disorders. If you or your child has been injured, has limitations from an illness, or could improve overall physical or cognitive function, you will not find a better place to get treatment. You will see results.

In 2008, donor contributions fueled a comprehensive upgrade of the department, bringing in state-of-the-art equipment that provides better workouts for more people. Technogym equipment adds to the updated look and brings equipment similar to that used by Olympians at their training center in Colorado Springs and in Beijing. (Learn about our Personal Training and Group Classes that utilize this equipment.) And the Alex Kaufman Pediatric Group Rehabilitation Room is a new space designed just for kids, providing a large, cheerful area separated from the adult space.
