Comprehensive Inpatient Rehabilitation

Specialized medical rehabilitation is an essential step on the continuum of care after a serious illness or injury. Regional One Health’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital has a proven track record of helping patients continue healing, regain independence and return home.

About Us

Regional One Health Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital is a 23-bed inpatient facility in a newly renovated space with attractive, spacious private rooms. Our physicians, nurses, therapists and other professionals form a team that understands health and healing and is committed to enhancing the quality of life for those we serve.

Our rehabilitation program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities International (CARF) and The Joint Commission. The accreditation process is based on rigorous specific standards, ensuring we provide the highest-quality inpatient rehabilitation services. Our specialty programs serving adult and adolescent patients include Comprehensive Medical Rehabilitation, Spinal Cord Injury and Brain Injury.

Our Programs

Our facility treats patients with a variety of diagnoses. In all of our specialized programs, medical management and nursing services are provided around the clock, and therapy is offered up to 7 days a week during daytime hours.

The Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital is the Mid-South’s leader in delivering medical care and rehabilitation therapy for patients with a variety of complex conditions that require intensive medical rehabilitation. Regional One Health is the Level-1 Trauma Center for Memphis and the surrounding 150-mile radius, giving our team a unique level of experience, skill and resources to help patients overcome the most challenging diagnoses. Our Comprehensive Medical Rehabilitation Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, which demonstrates our commitment to excellence in care, safety and patient outcomes.

A spinal cord injury is a life-changing event, and the Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital returns more patients to a home or community setting than regional or national averages. We treat patients with complete or incomplete injury to the spinal cord, tetraplegia and paraplegia. As a Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation partner and member of the American Spinal Injury Association, we provide the highest quality rehabilitation care, access to education and peer mentorship, and resources to help patients adjust to their new normal. Our Spinal Cord Injury Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, which demonstrates our commitment to excellence in care, safety and patient outcomes.

Participating in inpatient rehabilitation after a brain injury increases the likelihood of a patient being discharged home. Our comprehensive Brain Injury Program is led by therapists and rehab nurses credentialed by the Academy of Certified Brain Injury Specialists, allowing us to provide specialized care for every patient. We also offer access to a full range of education and support services to help patients and their families adjust to life after a brain injury. We treat injuries ranging from mild to severe. Our Traumatic Brain Injury Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, which demonstrates our commitment to excellence in care, safety and patient outcomes.

Following major multiple trauma, intensive rehabilitation is required to address complex health issues and help patients recover as much independence as possible. Because Regional One Health is the Mid-South’s Level-1 Trauma Center, our team has unmatched skill and experience in treating major multiple trauma patients. Every patient receives a customized treatment plan designed around their specific needs and goals, and our multidisciplinary approach allows us to provide comprehensive care for a variety of injuries.

Stroke can change your life immediately, but there is hope for recovery with the combined efforts of you, your family and your rehabilitation team. We use a patient-centered approach with services designed around you, starting with an individualized treatment plan created with input from you and your caregivers to help you achieve your goals and maximize your recovery.

The Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital provides a comprehensive multidisciplinary approach to orthopedic rehabilitation to help patients recover from musculoskeletal injuries, diseases or surgeries. We help patients maximize recovery and assist with reentry into the community via medical care and therapy designed to rebuild strength, function and mobility.

Specialized rehabilitation is essential to recovery from burn injuries, and our Firefighters Burn Center is the only American Burn Association certified burn center in the Mid-South. Because a burn can impact nearly every organ in the body and create significant scar tissue, rehabilitation must be designed around the unique challenges burn patients face. Our certified burn therapists have a proven track record of helping patients heal, avoid major surgery, and return to work, hobbies and independent living at a rate higher than peer facilities.

Your Rehab Team

As rehabilitation specialists, our providers have dedicated their careers to helping patients get back to the life they enjoyed before an illness or injury. Every patient’s care is led by a rehabilitation physician in conjunction with rehab-trained nurses. Patients also have access to physical, occupational, recreational and speech therapists, as well as case managers and social workers who offer support with discharge and the transition home.

We believe you and your caregivers are an integral part of the team. We seek your input and feedback throughout your stay to ensure your treatment program is always customized to your individual needs and goals.

Meet our Medical Director

Mario Ray, MD, MBA, FACP, is a physician and Hospitalist Medical Director at Regional One Health and an associate professor in the department of medicine at University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Dr. Ray received his medical degree and completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at University of Tennessee Health Science Center. Dr. Ray is also Hospitalist Medical Director at Regional One Health.

“My mom was an ICU nurse at Regional One Health, in the ‘80s and ‘90s, and brought me to work with her to get her check,” Dr. Ray shared. “While waiting on her, there were several code blues in the unit and the doctor calmly directed everyone to do their jobs and I thought, ‘That is the coolest thing I have ever seen and that is going to be me someday!’”

Dr. Ray has a passion for taking care of patients and doing his best to make a positive impact in their lives. “My favorite philosophy is ‘a good physician has no patients because he has done his job and the patients are healthy and can take care of themselves.’ That is what I work towards,” Dr. Ray said.

Dr. Ray grew up in the Orange Mound/Cherokee Heights area and is grateful for where he is today. “With the help of God and a handful of mentors in my life, I have come a long way,” Dr. Ray shared. “Without the help of others, I would not be where I am today.”
