For Patients

Pain Management

Our Pain Management Center at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital encompasses an experienced and dedicated team of professionals skilled in the treatment and management of a wide variety of acute and chronic pain issues. The goal of our physicians and nurses is to help you achieve as pain free existence as possible, while maintaining as high a level of normal function.

Because we recognize that every individual is different, we will customize your pain management treatments to fit your unique personal needs. At the Pain Management Center, we encourage you to be a partner in your treatment by asking questions and sharing concerns. We will listen closely, discuss your treatment options, and then develop a treatment plan designed specifically to support your healing from pain caused by accident, illness, or a degenerative medical condition.


The Acute Rehabilitation Program at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital offers medical rehabilitation, rehabilitation nursing, and therapies designed to restore a person’s capability to care for him or herself following a serious injury or illness. Individualized treatment plans that include a series of exercises, training, and education are created by a highly skilled team of rehabilitation experts. You will learn to transfer, walk, dress, eat, toilet, communicate, and problem solve so you can safely return to the community. Caregiver education and training are also important parts of our treatment plans.

Excellent Results

When compared to national standardized measures, our Acute Rehabilitation Unit achieves excellent results, far above the national average. These results are based on how much improvement is made on a daily basis and how soon you can return home. The program excels on both of these measures. Once home, you will continue your recovery through home health and outpatient rehabilitation services.

Expert Care

Under the direction of a board-certified physician specializing in rehabilitation (physiatrist), our treatment team includes rehabilitation nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, dietitians, respiratory therapists, speech-language pathologists, psychologists, a social worker/case manager, an orthotist, and other specialties as needed. Treatments take place in an active atmosphere using state-of-the-art technologies.

A Healing Atmosphere

The unit provides a relaxed setting ideal for healing the mind, body, and spirit between
treatments. Staff members are available to help you with concerns, and fellow patients offer support and
encouragement during group activities.

Self-Determination is Essential

The physician, therapy staff, and rehabilitation nurses make certain that you and your family fully understand your injury or illness. Our rehabilitation staff will work closely with
you to identify the most effective treatment goals. Your active participation, along with
teaching and training techniques, will help determine the best outcome.

Simple Referral Process

The Acute Rehabilitation Unit of Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital welcomes referrals. Hospitals and physicians will find the process is quick and easy, designed to access care for their patients as soon as possible. Every effort is made to quickly answer questions about bed availability and patient admission criteria. Tours of the facility can be arranged, and questions are always welcome.
