Rehabilitation and Therapy Services

Maximizing the quality of life for patients and families

A person suffering from a severe, disabling injury or illness needs special care: an individualized, integrated effort led by a team of rehabilitation professionals.

At Eastern Maine Medical Center's Rehabilitation Care, (formerly known as Maine Rehabilitation Center), we provide comprehensive care for children, adolescents, and adults. Experience and flexibility allow us to treat disabilities and functional problems of almost any origin. Among the most common we see are related to:
  • Stroke
  • Head and spinal cord injuries
  • Back or neck pain
  • Chronic pain
  • Sports injuries
  • Work-related injuries
  • Multiple trauma
  • Amputations
  • Congenital disorders
  • Orthopedic injuries
  • Deconditioning
  • Neurological disorders
  • Rheumatological disorders
EMMC Rehabilitation Care offers multiple levels of care: acute (based at the hospital) for adults and children, sub-acute (based at the hospital's Ross division skilled nursing facility), outpatient (at the EMMC Outpatient Rehabilitation Center based at the Healthcare Mall on Union Street), inpatient (at EMMC’s State Street Campus), and home based. We also provide outpatient specialty clinics for adults and children with muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, and other chronic disabling conditions.

We are unique in the scope of services we offer. Our rehabilitation staff is the area's best trained and most widely experienced. In addition, Rehab Care is part of Eastern Maine Medical Center, which means whatever additional needs our rehab patients have — from surgery to nutrition services — it's all here.
