Saint Luke's Rehabilitation Institute
This one-of-a-kind facility reimagines rehabilitation care for the 21st century with leading-edge technology and personalized treatment in a comfortable space close to home.
The experts at Saint Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute, located on the Saint Luke's South Hospital campus, guide patients along their journey to recovery in the only comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation hospital of its kind in the Kansas City region—all while keeping them close to their homes and families.
Patients recovering from stroke, brain, spine, cardiovascular, trauma, pulmonary, and orthopedic conditions receive compassionate care from our team of specialists in this 100,000-square-foot, 60-bed facility.
Leveraging the latest in equipment, research, and therapies, our specially trained experts create individual care plans that help get patients back to the lives they love.
Saint Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute is on the east side of the Saint Luke’s South Hospital campus in Overland Park, Kansas, near many hotels, restaurants, and other amenities.
At the Rehabilitation Institute, our recovery outcomes match or exceed those of world-renowned facilities.
- Discharge to home rate of 79% (regional average is 73%)
- A better patient-to-therapist ratio of 5 to 1 (the national average is 7 to 1)
- An average patient stay of about two weeks
Each year, Saint Luke’s Rehabilitation Institute helps patients return to their optimal level of function. The Institute is backed by all of Saint Luke’s extensive knowledge and experience, providing comprehensive care for complex medical issues.
Saint Luke’s cares for the most stroke patients in the region, so we know a one-size-fits-all rehabilitation plan doesn’t work for every patient. Our stroke patients go through a thorough assessment and goal-setting process. Our multidisciplinary team of expertly trained rehab therapists, physiatrists, social workers, and psychologists put together a customized plan with the goal of improving every aspect of a patient’s life so they can return home at their highest functioning level.
Our combination of leading-edge technology and personalized treatment is one reason that more of our stroke patients return home—instead of requiring additional rehab at a long-term care facility—than other facilities in the region.
In addition to rehab, our team works closely with the neurologists at Saint Luke’s Marion Bloch Neuroscience Institute to provide medical care that meets the specific needs of recovering stroke patients.
