Methodist Hospital Rehab Unit
A new lease on life.
An inpatient rehabilitation unit gets a taste of its own medicine.
Renovating to rehabilitate.
HED partnered with Methodist Hospital of Southern California to renovate its Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit, creating a safe, healing and nurturing care environment for patients and caregivers. As part of the renovation, an existing 20,000,00 square foot medical / surgical unit was converted into a patient-focused, therapeutic rehabilitative space.

The state-of-the-art unit includes a physical and occupational therapy gym, a speech therapy space, an “activity of daily living” suite, and spaces for dining and recreation. An outdoor Zen garden offers a peaceful, quiet escape for respite and emotional healing.

To optimize patient and staff safety, patient rooms were outfitted with ceiling-mounted patient lifts, cutting-edge technology and a new IT system. A centralized nurses’ station maximizes efficiency, enabling nurses to dedicate more time to patient care and training.

Methodist Hospital’s newly renovated Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit now provides critical rehabilitation services for patients recovering from debilitating injuries and illnesses throughout the greater San Gabriel Valley, providing empathetic, supportive care on the road to recovery.
