Inpatient care

Acute inpatient rehabilitation is designed for individuals who need close daily physician monitoring, 24-hour registered nurses and intensive physical, occupational and/or speech therapy to maximize recovery. We treat conditions including neurological disorders, cardiac conditions and orthopedic and spinal cord injuries. We also provide comprehensive programs for recreational therapy and neuropsychology.

We provide inpatient rehabilitative care for:

  • Amputation
  • Arthritic conditions
  • Bowel and bladder dysfunctions
  • Brain injury
  • Cancer
  • Cardiac disease
  • Complex wounds
  • Guillain-Barré syndrome
  • Medically complex conditions resulting in significant functional decline
  • Neuromuscular diseases (e.g., multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s disease)
  • Neuropathy
  • Orthopedic injuries and surgery
  • Pulmonary disease
  • Spasticity
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Stroke
  • Traumatic injuries

Our inpatient rehabilitation programs include:

  • Ambulation and stair training
  • Body weight supported therapy
  • Electrodiagnostics
  • Home management
  • Leisure skills education
  • Medication management and education
  • Neuropsychology
  • Pain management
  • Prosthetic and orthotic assessment prescription and training
  • Self-care training
  • Socialization
  • Splinting and serial casting
  • Speech, language and cognitive therapy
  • Swallowing therapy
  • Transfers and mobility training
  • Vestibular and balance training
  • Vision training
  • Wheelchair seating and positioning

Adult brain injury and stroke rehabilitation

Our inpatient program provides comprehensive rehabilitative care for patients who have experienced brain trauma, stroke, cerebral aneurysms, brain tumors and other neurological conditions.

A focus on patient and family

Family involvement and support are critical to a timely and successful recovery. We offer a number of educational programs and resources for you and your loved ones, including family education and support groups, family observation and training days, and community reintegration training and resources.

G-EO System™-Robotic Assisted Gait Trainer

Glen Cove Hospital is the only facility in New York and one of only seven in the country to offer the G-EO System ™- Robotic Assisted Gait Trainer, the world’s most advanced robotic-assisted device in gait rehabilitation. It is the only device that offers the unique feature of realistically simulating climbing stairs and is operated by one therapist. The GE-O System offers multiple therapy options for phase-specific treatment of each individual patient throughout the whole continuum of care.

Therapy options with the GE-O System include:

Floor walking
Floor walking movement allows patients to regain their ability to walk in less time when compared to conventional therapy approaches. By offering a realistic simulation of a physiological gait pattern, it allows patients to recover mobility and their independence in daily living.

Stair climbing
The unique feature of simulated stair climbing (up and down) is generated by motion capture data and calculated to be in accordance with Blondel’s Rule for a step of 18 cm (2xstep rise+ step depth = 65 cm). This feature allows the possibility of a complete rehabilitation pathway toward full recovery and independence.

Partial movement
The unique feature of partial movements allows isolating and generating specific phases of the gait cycle. Partial movement can be seen as the “first steps” to take into the gait rehabilitation process or as a specific training over isolated movements (pre-swing, swing, and stance).
