Greenwood Regional Rehabilitation Hospital has been ranked in the top 10 percent of inpatient rehabilitation facilities nationally for the 6th consecutive year.
The ranking was provided by the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation (UDSMR), a not-for-profit corporation that was developed with support from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research, a component of the U.S Department of Education. It ranks rehabilitation facilities based upon care that is patient-centered, effective, efficient, and timely.
“We continually strive to provide high quality care to our patients, so it’s exciting to be recognized as a national leader – especially for 6 years in a row,” says Kerry Trapnell, CEO of Greenwood Regional Rehabilitation Hospital. “But what I’m most pleased about are that patients right here in our community can receive the highest level of rehabilitative care available nationally without having to leave the area.”
UDSMR, which administers the world’s largest medical rehabilitation database, provides common language and measurement tools to monitor patient results.
“Through UDSMR, we collaborate with our peers throughout the United States to share information and establish best practices for patients,” says Trapnell. “This helps us elevate rehabilitative care for everyone across the United States.”
Greenwood Regional Rehabilitation Hospital has been a member of the Greenwood community since 2007. It provides intensive physical rehabilitation services to patients recovering from strokes, brain and spinal cord injuries, and other impairments as a result of injury or illness.
