John Muir Health provides the only inpatient rehabilitation facility in Contra Costa County offering intensive acute care, with certified rehabilitation nurses (CCRN) providing direct patient care, immediate access to surgeons, physicians, and nurses trained in critical care, and a 98% patient satisfaction rating.

A therapy program as individual as you are

Our specialized rehabilitation professionals take a team approach to therapy for patients ages 14 and up. We begin by designing a personalized program, together with you and your family.

For up to three hours a day, we work with you one-on-one to help speed your return to the highest level of function and quality of life. Before you leave, our rehabilitation nurses give you the education and training you need to return to your former lifestyle.

State of the art facilities built to enhance healing

Designed for comfort, privacy and healing, our inpatient rehabilitation unit features 30 private rooms surrounded by a serene environment of colorful gardens and outdoor patios.

You can spend time in the rehabilitation garden, which features a variety of landscapes that replicate real-life challenges.  The garden provides an extension of your treatment where you can safely practice walking up stairs, perform activities that involve balance and improve your motor skills.  You can also use the golf putting green to improve your hand-eye coordination.  


Additionally, we provide indoor educational and therapy programs that use a variety of “out-of-the-box” techniques to improve your physical abilities.  These include pet therapy and “Wii-hab,” which uses interactive games to improve your strength, balance and coordination. Find out what to expect from the day you move in until the day you leave.
