The Neurological Rehabilitation and Research Unit, also called 1 West, is an 11-bed inpatient, acute rehab unit that specializes in patients with a neurological injury, surgery or illness.
We encourage family and friends of potential rehabilitation patients to tour the NRRU prior to admission. Tours can be arranged by calling the unit at (310) 794-6556 and speaking to the Charge Nurse or Unit Director. Website information is also available at http://www.ucla.rehab.edu
The NRRU is located in the Center for Health Sciences Building directly across the street from Ronald Reagan Medical Center on Westwood Boulevard. From Reagan, cross Westwood Boulevard and you will see the Semel Institute sign. This is the C-level entrance and there is an intercom at the left hand side of the doors to reach the NRRU and gain access. Once inside the building, take the elevator to the 1st floor and follow the signs that state Neurological Rehabilitation. Once you get to the 1st floor, turn right and you will see Neurological Rehabilitation, suite 17-443. This is the NRRU.
Please contact us if you have any questions, and we will do all we can to facilitate your recovery!
How is a patient admitted to the NRRU?
Your physician team in the acute hospital will contact our unit for evaluation. NRRU bases the admission decision on many criteria, including ability to tolerate three hours of therapy daily, potential to regain a level of independence, and insurance authorization.
How long will my loved one stay in the NRRU?
Our average length of stay for patients is approximately two weeks. However, length of stay may vary and is dependent on participation and functional progress toward goals.
