Stroke Rehabilitation Facilities

The Emergency Department
At WakeMed, we have emergency departments across the county nearby where people work and live. We understand that when you have an emergency – an accident, heart attack or stroke – it is critical to get quality medical care immediately. With this in mind, our team of experts is ready to provide a distinct plan of care that will guide patients and families from the minute you enter our doors.

Primary Stroke Centers
WakeMed Raleigh Campus & Cary Hospital are both Joint Commission certified Primary Stroke Centers. Learn about our acute care programs.

Neuro Care Unit
This acute hospital unit, located on our Raleigh Campus, is specially designed for individuals with more severe injuries or strokes, who are medically stable, and can benefit from coordinated rehabilitative services, but may need more time to recover before being ready to move to the next step. While on the Neuro Care Unit, each patient’s schedule will accommodate the patient’s current level of functioning and provide occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy.

WakeMed Rehabilitation Hospital
Our inpatient rehabilitation hospital, located on our Raleigh Campus, treats patients who need intensive rehabilitation therapy after their inpatient hospital stay for stroke, brain injury, spinal cord injury, orthopaedic conditions or other physical trauma. More than 30 percent of the patients we treat in our Rehabilitation Hospital are recovering from stroke.

Our goal is to help patients become as independent as possible so they can return to daily life. To ensure each patient is receiving the best care possible, our team of experts, also called an interdisciplinary team, leads patients through their individualized rehabilitation program.

We strive to create a comfortable, homelike setting for our patients and their loved ones and are always open to feedback on what we can do to enhance a patient's stay. We have common areas equipped with TVs and computers. We also have a private dining room so that families can host birthday parties, celebrations, and other important special events while loved ones are hospitalized.  Patients and families have access Monday through Friday to our onsite HealthPark, which boasts a fish pond, walking track miniature golf course, ping pong table, and multiple venues to enjoy and visit with family, friends, and guests. Additionally, we have newly renovated gym space, inpatient care unit and the very best equipment available to ensure your best possible outcome. During the week and as needed on weekends, patients undergo at least three hours of therapy that may include occupational therapy, physical therapy and speech therapy. Patients also have access to neuropsychological services and recreational therapy.

Our focus and attention on details doesn’t stop at aesthetics. Our highly trained treatment team members deliver a level of care and compassion unmatched in our area. The nurses, therapists, nursing and therapy aides, case managers, physicians, and physician assistants are dedicated to assist you with getting back to your life, as quickly as possible.

Additionally, as result of being centrally located on WakeMed’s Raleigh Campus, patients have the added support and convenience to additional levels therapeutic care like outpatient rehab, day treatment, wound care and other supportive services during their time with us.
