Newsweek Includes Loma Linda as One of the Best Physical Rehab Centers

Loma Linda University Health has been included on Newsweek’s list of America’s Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers 2021. The award is presented by Newsweek and Statista, Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list was announced on August 25, 2021, and can be viewed on Newsweek’s website.

Darryl VandenBosch, interim vice president/administrator of Loma Linda University Medical Center (LLUMC) East Campus and Surgical Hospital, said this recognition is a testament to the entire rehab team and their dedication to their patients and the organization.

“Our team of board-certified doctors, nurses, therapists, and staff help our patients reach maximum recovery and provide customized care to meet their unique needs,” VandenBosch said. “It is our mission to continue providing the best care to every patient we serve.”

Loma Linda University Health’s multidisciplinary approach offers collaborative care to bring the best practices to patients. Most rehab services are offered at LLUMC East Campus, providing one-stop access to the most comprehensive rehabilitation services in the region. 

LLUH Rehabilitation Services includes inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation. Loma Linda is the leading provider of acute rehabilitation care in the region, offering hospitalized patients the most comprehensive experience at two inpatient units. Its outpatient therapies, orthopedics, sports therapy, and pediatric rehabilitation also assist patients in improving their quality of life.

In pediatric rehabilitation, Loma Linda works closely with families to develop a personalized treatment plan aimed at improving each child’s ability to reach their potential.

Finally, Loma Linda’s robotic rehabilitation therapy — the only one in the region — offers hope to patients of all ages suffering from neurological impairment due to stroke, injury, or disease (such as Parkinson’s). Using advanced robotics, the Loma Linda team helps the affected person reduce pain and improve their ability to move, stand, walk, or grasp and manipulate objects.

The America’s Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers 2021 list highlights the top inpatient rehabilitation facilities in the United States based on the quality of care, quality of service, quality of follow-up care, and accommodation and amenities. Facilities in the 25 states with the highest number of inpatient rehabilitation facilities — according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services — were part of this study. The rankings feature the top 230 centers nationwide.
