These health care facilities form the core of the clinical activities of the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.
University Hospital, the base of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, is a major tertiary care center and regional referral center that serves the 15-county Central New York region. The rehabilitation program operates a 33-bed inpatient unit in a 30,000 sq. foot state-of-the-art rehabilitation center with a full array of exercise, therapeutic, electrodiagnostic, and urodynamic equipment.
At this 154-bed facility adjacent to university hospital, we operate an 18-bed Inpatient General Medical Rehabilitation Unit, outpatient rehabilitation, prosthetic, hand and back/spine clinics. Residents obtain valuable direct evaluation and treatment experience through these programs.
