If you’re in a serious accident, have an injury or are dealing with a new condition or serious illness, you need the best possible care around the clock. Our inpatient rehabilitation programs offer 24/7 hospital-based care and expert therapy to help you start feeling like yourself again.
By working with a dedicated team of rehab physicians, nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and more, you’ll be on the road to recovery at a pace that matches your needs and health goals.
And that same level of support can continue with outpatient physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy and home therapy services – so you get the exact level of care you need at every step of your healing journey.

When you start inpatient rehabilitation, you’ll work with a dedicated team of experts committed to your success. Together, you’ll create a plan of care that addresses your specific needs, challenges and goals.
You’ll spend up to three hours each day working with your doctors, nurses and therapists to practice real-world skills, including:
You’ll use our life-like environments and cutting-edge technology to help speed your progress in the areas that matter to you.
Most patients complete our rehab program in 12 days or less. From there, we’ll work with your primary care doctor to make a plan for continuing care. This might include home visits, follow-up appointments, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy and additional outpatient rehabilitation.
Located at Aurora Sinai in Milwaukee, Easy Street is a real-world environment you can use to practice everyday skills before you leave the hospital. Easy Street includes a car, bank, movie theater, grocery store, bus and barbershop.
Within this life-sized world, you’ll practice the daily skills you’ll use once you leave the hospital – like getting in and out of a car – in a safe and supportive environment.
Easy Street at Aurora Sinai is the only rehab environment of its kind in the state of Wisconsin. We also offer practice environments at many of our other rehabilitation locations, like a fully furnished apartment at Aurora St. Luke’s.
