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 before their stroke. Whether the need is to regain speech, relearn motor skills, or both, Swedish's Rehabilitation Center offers individualized treatment programs to match unique needs.

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.

Our approach to stroke rehabilitation is unique because we do not use a one-size-fits-all philosophy. Our program is structured around the severity of the stroke, the location and type of stroke, and the unique needs of each patient.
