Rehabilitation

Onslow Memorial’s Rehabilitation Program is one of only a few in Jacksonville, NC, offering comprehensive rehabilitation services to residents of Onslow County and the surrounding communities – all in one convenient location. Our services include Physical or Occupational Therapy, Speech-Language Pathology and Cardiac Rehabilitation available to both inpatients and outpatients demonstrating need for assistance in the areas of habilitation and rehabilitation.

Inpatient services are provided by a multidisciplinary team of experienced physical and occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists who are able to provide evaluations and treatment appropriate for admitting diagnoses. Therapy in this setting consists of therapeutic exercise, functional activity as indicated, patient and family education, ongoing assessment and supportive care as needed. Rehab services are provided to patients in all areas of the hospital as prescribed by their physicians, to include infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Therapists work in collaboration with physicians, nursing staff, families, discharge planners and dietary staff to make recommendations, to ensure safety, and to facilitate our patients' return to their former living environment as soon as possible.
