  • Total hip replacement
  • Spinal injuries and surgeries
  • Multiple traumas

Evidence-Based Practice

Salude’s orthopedic and musculoskeletal rehab is driven by evidence-based practice.

Therapists track patient progress as they work toward recovery and adjust therapy as needed.

Exclusive “Transitionist” Care Model

Our “transitionist” model utilizes our full-time physician CEO to lead the clinical program. As a part of this model, we have nurse practitioners, internists and a physiatrist (rehabilitation physician) available up to 7 days a week.

We are different from other recovery centers in that our care services aren’t just limited to within our four walls. We have nurse practitioners in our community available for patient home visits as needed after they are discharged home from Salude and until they are safely bridged to their own specialty and primary care physicians.

“I was impressed that the business executive made time to see patients. The nurses administered medication with a smile, and the physical therapists brought me much needed return of strength. Even the CNAs showed care, especially in the dining area.”

– Nicholas D.
