Welcome to HealthSouth Yuma Rehabilitation Hospital We are an inpatient 41-bed acute rehab hospital with an onsite outpatient clinic in Yuma, Arizona. It’s a beautiful hospital with new equipment and a large gym. We offer our patients the latest technology such as the AutoAmbulator, Lite Gait, Smart Step by Adante, Bioness L300 and H200, Saeboflex, Reo, Nintendo Wii and Interactive Metronome. Our friendly therapists have a wide range of experience and are teamwork oriented. Many of our therapists have specialized training for neurologically impaired patients. The majority of our outpatient population diagnoses are neurological with some orthopedic diagnoses. Our inpatient population is a mix of neurological patients (emphasis in CVA and PD) and orthopedic patients.
Our unique area of the country offers many different opportunities for fun and exploration. We are approximately 3 hours from Phoenix, San Diego and Tucson. We are close enough to ski slopes for a weekend trip. We have sand dunes for recreational sports (they are the dunes in Star Wars and Space Balls). We hold the record for the most recorded hours of sunshine in a year, in the world! Summers are hot, but with the low humidity and close proximity to water sports at the Colorado River, we stay nice and cool. The winter here is beautiful - No coats required.
Many of our therapists enjoy hiking, rock climbing, golfing, volleyball, range shooting, and boating. Yuma is also the lettuce capital of the country so it’s not all desert. We are surrounded by small mountains.
