Texas Rehabilitation Hospital of Fort Worth is an inpatient setting. Patients stay overnight and have the full medical continuum available as needed.

In some instances a patient may receive a lower level of therapy intensity daily to accommodate his/her individual needs. These patients receive 15 hours of therapy over a 7-day period. The focus of inpatient rehabilitation is wellness and achieving the highest level of independence possible to return to living in the community.

Intensity of Services
Patients at Texas Rehabilitation Hospital of Fort Worth are expected to participate in at least 3 hours of therapy per day, 5 days per week. On average, our patients participate in 3 to 4 hours of therapy each day Monday through Friday and a lesser amount of therapy on Saturday and Sunday. In certain special circumstances patients will not be required to participate in 3 hours of therapy per day, but these cases are rare. For example, patients receiving dialysis or chemotherapy - these patients will participate in 15 hours of therapy over a 7-day period. (An average of 2 to 2.5 hours of therapy per day). If a patient is too ill or unable to participate in this level of therapy due to medical complications, the patient may be discharged to a more appropriate level of care. This is not done immediately, as often times a patient can recover in one to two days and begin fully participating again.
