Rehabilitation

The range of rehabilitation services you need for recovery are available in Kernersville

When you are trying to get better after a serious injury or illness such as a car accident or stroke, you want the best care possible. When you receive care at Novant Health Kernersville Medical Center, your providers know that. Physical, occupational and speech therapy services are available for you in the hospital once your most urgent medical needs are taken care of.

When you’re well enough to return home, your recovery may continue at a nearby Novant Health outpatient rehabilitation center. These centers can offer you an important range of services in a comfortable, safe environment as you recover from conditions such as a heart attack, concussion or fall.


Inpatient services

If an urgent medical problem brings you to our hospital, your providers will focus on your critical healthcare needs first. Once those have been treated, they can help you plan your recovery. Your care team may set up physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy services that you can get while you’re still in the hospital.

Outpatient services

Even when you’re healthy enough to go home, you have options for pushing harder for recovery by working with experts in our outpatient rehabilitation programs. Your provider may recommend that you focus on services that help you improve your balance, relearn basic abilities or build strength to prevent falls or other injuries. You can schedule a visit to work on those skills at Novant Health Rehabilitation Center – Kernersville, which is located close to our medical center campus.
