Orlando Health Advanced Rehabilitation Institute, formerly Orlando Health Orlando Regional Medical Center Institute for Advanced Rehabilitation, offers advanced inpatient rehabilitation care, services and research for individuals (ages 12 and up) with brain injury, spinal cord injury, stroke, amputation and other neurologic and musculoskeletal conditions. Patients directly benefit from Orlando Health's network of services, including specialized physicians, state-of-the-art technology, and diagnostic and treatment services not available at other centers.
Demonstrating a commitment to meeting the highest standards in quality, safety and outcome measures, the Orlando Health Advanced Rehabilitation Institute has received accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) in stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury and comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation programs.
To best meet the increasing need for rehabilitative care in Central Florida and beyond, the Orlando Health Advanced Rehabilitation Institute relocated to a free-standing facility on the Orlando Health – Health Central Hospital campus in October 2023. The new 54-bed inpatient rehabilitation hospital is distinctively designed to provide high-quality post-acute care for patients requiring medical and rehabilitative services with a seamless transition of care and ease of access to all available programs and services. An interdisciplinary team approach brings together rehabilitation physicians, coordinated therapy and nursing teams, ongoing dietary intervention, care management services and neuropsychology consultation as needed to help patients reach their individual rehabilitation goals at every stage of recovery.
Features of the new facility include:
All private patient rooms
Dedicated therapy space, including three therapy gyms, quiet areas for patients with brain injuries/strokes, bariatric access and an expansive outdoor space for additional therapeutic activity
Simulated apartment for activities of daily living, plus an additional training suite with four different home bathing designs

At Orlando Health Advanced Rehabilitation Institute, we also understand that the treatment journey continues after a patient leaves an inpatient facility. Our team is here to support that journey through outpatient services that will help each patient meet their individual rehabilitation goals and achieve the highest possible level of independence. Our outpatient centers feature interdisciplinary teams working together to provide top-notch care based on each patient's unique needs.
