Swain Community Hospitals’ Rehab Services Department provides
a wide range of services and locations to treat our patients.

Our highly-trained, compassionate staff is committed to helping our patients reach their goals and helping improve quality of life.  Our focus is on providing one-on-one, personalized care for our patients. Patients are typically treated by the same therapist and/or assistant throughout their plan of care, offering an attention to detail and the subtleties of each individual's progress that we believe truly makes a difference in our patients' outcomes.

Many of our staff have achieved Doctorate level training or specialty certifications, including specialists in vestibular rehab, lymphedema, orthopedics, pediatrics, geriatrics, and hand specialty.
