At University of Utah Health’s Rehabilitation Center, our focus is to preserve, enhance, and restore the quality of life for people with disabling conditions. We provide individualized care for a variety of conditions helping you to regain independence and confidence in yourself.

Our Center’s dedicated teams are composed of regionally and nationally respected specialists dedicated to supporting patients and families from acute rehabilitation through wellness and independence. Even after a patient leaves our inpatient center, we continue to provide specialized rehabilitation care through outpatient physician services in our outpatient therapy services, wellness programs, ongoing patient education, and access to support groups. We are also the only CARF accredited inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation program in Utah.

For Patients With Unique Needs

Patients going through rehabilitation have unique needs. They also need an expert, caring team of health providers giving specialized care to make sure they have the best recovery possible.

The Craig H. Neilsen Rehabilitation Hospital will be the preeminent destination in the Mountain West for patients recovering from and adjusting to life-altering injuries and conditions. With 172,000 square feet, this advanced facility will be a restorative and healing environment designed to speed recovery and improve quality of life for patients after they return home.

This new building will provide state of the art rehabilitation services, including:

  • access to renowned physicians,
  • an outdoor therapy terrace,
  • a large therapy gym, and
  • inpatient beds with sweeping views of the Salt Lake Valley.

The rehabilitation hospital is scheduled to be completed in late 2020.
