Partnering with and empowering patients to achieve their full functional potential.
The UCLA Health Department of Rehabilitation Services is a model of excellence by providing patient-centered care through evidence based practice, education, and research. We promote health and wellness in the continuum of care by providing a positive, supportive, and team oriented environment for patients, staff and referring physicians.
There are approximately 300 staff members, all with specialized expertise to meet patients' needs. Specialty areas include certified hand therapists, certified geriatric clinicians, orthopedic clinical specialists, neurorehabilitation specialists, smoking cessation, and gait/balance disorders. Staff members are encouraged to try creative treatment strategies while providing individualized treatment approaches, and the Rehab Department is an integral component of UCLA's Wellness Initiative. Patient satisfaction with all areas of rehab is consistently above 90%, and staff members are active participants in strategic development and problem resolution.
