At Lafayette Regional Rehabilitation Hospital, our outpatient services are designed to provide rehabilitation services to patients who are no longer required to be in the hospital, but still need physical, occupational and/or speech therapy to help them continue to recover fully.

How we provide care
Our medical professionals work as a team with our outpatients and their family members to create individualized treatment plans so our patients can continue to progress at their own ability levels after leaving the hospital. Our rehabilitation team includes specially trained physicians, occupational, speech and physical therapists – among other medical professionals. It is led by our full-time medical director, who is board-certified in physical medicine and rehabilitation.
Our patients who are treated through our outpatient programs have access to well-equipped therapy areas, including a 6,000-square foot therapy gym with private treatment rooms, a heated aquatic therapy pool with an electric lift, and a therapeutic courtyard to allow practice on different terrains such as ramps, stairs, gravel, dirt, curb, curb cut-outs, and wood decking.
We also offer treatment in our multiple day rooms, which include a daily living suite and a transitional suite. These areas allow patients to practice normal, daily, at-home activities under the supervision of a healthcare professional. Some of these activities may include cooking, cleaning, or doing laundry.
To help expand our treatment, we offer support groups for patients and caregivers. These groups allow our patients to share experiences with others with common challenges, explore resources, encourage one another, and learn how to best navigate their circumstances.
Lafayette Regional Rehabilitation Hospital offers a Stroke Support Group and an Amputee Support Group, providing resources and assistance to patients, their family members, and caregivers.
