Roper Rehabilitation Hospital

Roper Rehabilitation Hospital, located within Roper Hospital, is a 52-bed inpatient “hospital within a hospital” nationally recognized for excellence in helping people overcome disabling injury or illness and reach their fullest functional potential. Since opening in 1992, our excellent team has been committed to making every moment of our patients’ recovery matter. More than 80% of our patients recover enough to return to independent living rather than an institutional care setting.
