The multidisciplinary team of rehabilitation and clinical experts with the two Care New England Centers for Rehabilitation look forward to working with you on regaining your strength, mobility and independence.
As you recover from an injury or illness, you can enjoy the comprehensive approach we take to the rehabilitation process. We can help you if you need more intense inpatient rehab or with outpatient services if you do not require admission or after you are discharged. In addition, our affiliation with the Care New England Health System gives us access to the VNA of Care New England which can provide key services in your own home.

- Orthopedic injury or surgery aftercare.
- Progressive neurological disease.
- Amputation and diabetes.
- COPD and congestive heart failure.
- General surgical recovery.
