Presbyterian Medical Center


You set the pace for recovery in our rehabilitation programs

A serious injury or illness such as a stroke can keep you from the activities that are most important to you. The medical team at Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center understands this. Rehabilitation can improve your recovery after a heart attack or concussion, or help you get relief from chronic pain. You can get training and assistance for building strength, improving balance and restoring other areas of health. Physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy are among our rehabilitation services. Your doctor can recommend the right level of care.

Inpatient services

When you have a medical emergency, your care team will first make sure your illness or injury is being treated. As your providers evaluate your progress, they may recommend rehabilitation services that you can receive during your hospital stay. If your risk for falling or hurting yourself is lower, your doctor might recommend continuing your therapy after you leave the hospital.

Outpatient services

Our programs can help you get stronger and relearn skills after a serious illness, elective surgery or other procedures. If you have heart disease or a breathing problem such as emphysema, your provider might also recommend wellness rehabilitation programs. These services can help you strengthen your heart or lungs through exercise or managing stress.

You can schedule visits to work toward your goals at the Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center outpatient rehabilitation center. The center is located close to the medical campus.
