A Therapeutic Environment

CMH provides a community-based, therapeutic environment for various rehabilitation needs, including: post-orthopaedic surgery, arthritis, injury, stroke and disease.

Through both long-term and short-term rehabilitation programs, we are able to help patients maximize their ability to function independently and get ready to return to the community. We also have follow-up, on-site care to ensure you’re meeting your personal goals.
