What we do

What We Do

We treat patients so that they can return to their normal lives with minimal disruption.

We provide doctors with the service, support and environment they need to fully focus on treating their patients.

We positively impact the lives of our staff, through flexibility, respect and involvement.

We contribute to the communities to which we belong and collaborate with them to improve locally available healthcare.

Specialist Rehabilitation Services

Our specialist rehabilitation hospitals and units provide interdisciplinary rehabilitation for both inpatients and outpatient/day therapy programs. We aim to restore function and independence following illness or disability. Our intensive and comprehensive rehabilitation programs are personalised to meet individual needs. We work with our patients to achieve their goals, whether it’s to return to home, or to return to work or to recreational activities. 

Our experienced and dedicated teams include Rehabilitation Specialist Doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, occupational therapists and speech pathologists. Other members of your team may include a dietitian, pharmacist, podiatrists, psychologist or social worker. 

Our rehabilitation services include:

  • Orthopaedic – joint replacements, fractures
  • Musculoskeletal
  • Multi-trauma rehabilitation 
  • Amputation rehabilitation and gait retraining  
  • Neurological – stroke, traumatic brain injury, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease
  • Spasticity management
  • Pain management
  • Reconditioning – restorative e.g. following illness or surgery
  • Cancer rehabilitation
  • Cardiac (Phase II) and Pulmonary programs
  • Falls prevention and balance programs
  • Hydrotherapy – our hospitals have hydrotherapy pools onsite, or have local access

Inpatient admissions may be suitable for those requiring more intensive rehabilitation therapy, require nursing assistance, or for those transitioning from hospital to home.

Outpatient/Day Therapy programs provide rehabilitation to those in the community. These may be individualised programs or in a group setting e.g. cardiac phase II group, falls prevention and balance group, cancer rehabilitation group.

At Pulse Health Rehabilitation Units our holistic and person-centred approach provides patients  with the best rehabilitation and support in their recovery. We strive to achieve our promise – healthcare with a heart.
