Cardiac Rehabilitation to Increase Endurance

The specially trained staff at Valley Children’s Inpatient Pediatric Rehabilitation Center provides therapeutic expertise to help patients with congenital heart defects or acquired heart disease build endurance as they recover from surgery or hospitalization. Through an individualized program, our inpatient pediatric rehab team helps patients regain strength and reduce future health risks.

Specialty Care with Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

As the only pediatric provider in the region with physiatrist-based care, our board-certified and fellowship-trained physician specialists combine physical medicine with rehabilitation expertise. Our specialized team of physiatrists directs all care at Valley Children's 20-bed Inpatient Pediatric Rehabilitation Center. In addition to rehabilitative care while in the Hospital, our team provides detailed educational care for caregivers and patients as they prepare to return home.
