The Swedish Medical Center, Denver, comprehensive stroke services include in-hospital rehabilitation for stroke patients.

Many stroke survivors face the challenge of regaining both cognitive and physical skills - skills that were automatic or easy before their stroke-- after their stroke. Examples include the need to regain speech or relearn motor skills. Swedish's Acute Rehabilitation Center offers individualized treatment programs to match the needs of our patients.

As one of the nation's top acute inpatient rehabilitation centers, Swedish is dedicated to guiding patients through extensive activities that promote wellness and comfort for a lifetime. Whether someone has experienced a mild, moderate or severe stroke, our goals are the same: returning him or her to the family and community, easing pain, promoting mobility and function, and advocating for a productive future.
