Shore Rehabilitation Institute (SRI) is a 40-bed acute rehabilitation hospital that is fully accredited by the Joint Commission and the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities in the Inpatient Rehabilitation Adult Program, Inpatient Rehabilitation Adult Brain Injury Specialty Program, and Stroke Specialty Program. The Institute directly adjoins to Ocean Medical Center. Our expert team provides a full range of inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services, and is dedicated to helping patients who have been disabled by disease or injury to progress toward their highest level of function and independence.
Located adjacent to Ocean Medical Center in Brick, NJ, SRI is fully accredited by the Joint Commission as an acute rehabilitation hospital, providing a broad spectrum of rehabilitation services.
Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation
Acute inpatient rehabilitation is the highest level of rehabilitative care available. At SRI, patients who require an inpatient stay are cared for by a highly skilled team including board-certified physiatrists, physicians, rehab certified nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, orthotists, recreation therapists, dietitians, case managers, social workers and a neuropsychologist. Together, they work to achieve the best outcomes possible for each patient.
Outpatient Rehabilitation / Aftercare Program
With a full array of services located within one facility, Shore Rehabilitation Institute’s aftercare and outpatient rehabilitation programs are excellent choices for patients discharged from our inpatient programs to continue outpatient therapy, or for anyone in the community requiring rehabilitation. The Aftercare Program is designed to address special rehabilitation needs as patients transition to community independence. Our physician directed program maximizes functional recovery while reducing preventable hospital admissions. Patients learn about improving physical function, decreasing pain and community resources to remain active and healthy. Our outpatient team provides the highest quality care through one-on-one patient sessions focused on improving function, along with patient and family education to maintain and continue progress.
