Inpatient rehabilitation hospitals are facilities that specialize in the delivery of comprehensive multidisciplinary rehabilitation services to patients with complex medical conditions that compromise their ability to function normally.
The conditions usually treated at an inpatient rehabilitation hospital include stroke, amputation, multiple trauma, traumatic brain injuries, and neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease.
Physiatrists, which are doctors that specialize in rehabilitation medicine, lead the rehabilitation team that usually consists of physical, occupational, and speech therapists as well as case managers, social workers, nutritionists, psychologists, and other rehabilitation professionals.
Medlux Rehabilitation & Wellness partners with several acute rehab hospitals across the Chicagoland area to provide them physiatrists and mid-level providers to lead their rehabilitation teams. The hospitals we are affiliated with include:
- FHN Memorial Hospital (Freeport, IL)
- Franciscan Health Olympia Fields (Olympia Fields, IL)
- Franciscan Health Center for Rehabilitation (Olympia Fields, IL)
- Mercyhealth Javon Bea Hospital - Rockton (Rockford, IL)

Subacute rehabilitation refers to inpatient rehabilitation care delivered at skilled nursing facilities (SNFs). Like acute rehabilitation hospitals, subacute rehabilitation programs include comprehensive multidisciplinary treatment teams, but usually at a lower intensity and specificity.
A major difference between acute and subacute rehabilitation programs is that most subacute rehabilitation programs are not led by physicians who specialize in rehabilitation medicine.
Complex wounds often lead to severe debilitation and require management by physicians with special training in wound care. The most commonly managed conditions include diabetic ulcers, venous stasis lesions, and decubitus ulcers. Medlux Rehabilitation & Wellness partners with skilled nursing facilities to provide physiatrists and mid-level providers that specialize in comprehensive wound care.
