Care New England Inpatient Rehabilitation at Kent Hospital, located at 455 Toll Gate Road, Warwick, RI 02886, offers customized patient and family-focused rehabilitation treatment and education that emphasize each patient's unique strengths, abilities and preferences.
Rehabilitative care begins with appropriate therapies that lead the patient to the greatest degree of function possible, with individualized therapy goals to prepare patients once again, to enter the world of independent living. Kent Hospital works with their Care New England partners to provide an uninterrupted treatment path from inpatient rehabilitation, to home care and outpatient rehabilitation.
The rehabilitation process is designed to improve the quality of life for patients recovering from a variety of medical conditions which may include:
The Rehabilitation Center, developed in consultation with Boston's Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital, assures each patient superior care and convenience. The focus is on the whole person with the goal of returning that person to the best quality of life possible. The treatment team includes:
Our goal is simple: to help our patients lead a more independent life following an illness or injury. Conditions often treated include, but not limited to:
Upon completing Kent Hospital's inpatient rehabilitation program, our coordinated discharge planning process ensures that a patient's care needs continue without interruption even after discharge. Case Managers assist with any home equipment the patients may need, coordinate outpatient therapy and make follow-up appointments with their surgeon or referring physician.
Many factors will influence your length of stay, including severity of injury, previous health status, ability to tolerate three hours of rehabilitative services a day and medical complications. The rehabilitation team will discuss your length of stay with you after they have evaluated your condition. The team will work with you and your family to help determine the best discharge environment for you based on your needs at the time of discharge. If you are unable to return home, the team will assist you and your family in making other arrangements.
Interpretation services are available to all patients with limited English proficiency. Telecommunications devices (TDDs), television decoders, and hearing amplification devices are available upon request.

The Rehabilitation Center at Kent Hospital has passed an in-depth review of its services by CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities). The value in CARF accreditation is adherence to rigorous guidelines for service and quality, recognized nationally and internationally and a commitment to continually improving rehabilitation services.
At the Rehabilitation Center at Kent, we believe that discharges to a nursing home can be prevented for many patients. They can instead be given the opportunity to come to an inpatient rehabilitation program. It is there that they can benefit from an intensive rehabilitation program and regain their independence for a safe return home.
