Acute Inpatient Rehab Unit Recognized as Top Performer

The Acute Inpatient Rehab Unit at Baxter Regional Medical Center was recently recognized as a 2015 Top Performer by Uniform Data System (UDS). The Top Performer achievement is for those among the top 10% of UDS subscribing facilities in 2015 rankings (based on 2014 data).

UDS is the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services intermediary for inpatient medical rehabilitation facilities. Approximately 70% of all inpatient rehabilitation facilities are subscribers, with data tracked and benchmarked against other rehab facilities nationally. BRMC was previously recognized as a Top Performer in 2008.

The Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit is committed to providing individualized and flexible treatment programs for patients who have been disabled by injury or illness, with a mission to assist the patient in obtaining the skills needed to live and work independently. Successful rehabilitation demands a healthy transition from the hospital to the home and community.
