Named America's Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers for 2022 by Newsweek

Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation Ranked Among Best in Nation and No. 1 in the Region

Reputation, quality and follow-up care drive Newsweek and Statista Inc.’s ratings for America’s Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers

Gaithersburg, MD - Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation recently was named among the best inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRF) in the United States, and first in the region, by Newsweek and Statista Inc., a leading global provider of statistics and rankings. Rankings are based on a complex scoring model that includes a center’s reputation, quality of care, service and post hospitalization follow-up, as well as inpatient accommodations and amenities.

Named America's Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers in South Region for 2022 by Newsweek"This recognition from Newsweek is a testament to the skill, hard work, and compassionate care provided by our dedicated team of professionals," says Brent Reitz, President, Adventist HealthCare Post-Acute Care Services. "Adventist HealthCare is proud to lead the region and the nation in providing high-quality care using state-of-the art equipment that allows us to customize treatment to achieve the desired outcome for every patient and get them back to living their best life."

In 2022, Newsweek ranked 255 inpatient facilities, based on the results of an online survey of over 4,400 experts on physical rehabilitation. The physical rehabilitation centers eligible for being considered in the rankings were identified according to the definition of Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRFs) by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). IRFs are freestanding rehabilitation hospitals or rehabilitation units in acute care hospitals that provide a rehabilitation program of at least three hours of intense therapy services.

In addition to recommendations based on quality, outcomes, and service, survey participants were able to specify a standout program (amputation, brain injury, cancer, spinal cord injury or stroke) for the recommended facilities. Adventist Rehabilitation is certified by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) in all four of its specialty programs: Amputee, Traumatic Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury and Stroke.

Reputation accounted for 45% of the total score, and key performance indicator (KPI) data from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services accounted for another 45% of the score. Also factored in was a commitment to both improvement and research in order to meet the unique needs of each person served and promote the best quality of life. The last 10% of the score was based on CARF data and Model System scores from the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILR).

"This achievement shines a light on Adventist HealthCare Rehabilitation’s commitment to excellence from its entire staff and evidences a return on our investment in bringing advanced rehabilitation treatments to Maryland," commented Reitz.
