Because hospital stays are getting shorter, it’s more important than ever that patients recovering from surgery, illness, or injury find a setting that encourages their complete recovery. Riverton Transitional Rehabilitation Center is here to make everyone feel at home during that time.

When you or someone you love is in need of nursing care and/or rehabilitation, Riverton Transitional Rehabilitation Center wants you to resume a meaningful lifestyle as soon as possible. They are uniquely qualified to meet the care needs of individuals with “hospital-level” acuity, and offer a combination of clinical and rehabilitation services to help patients recover in an environment that is as comfortable as possible.

As part of Rocky Mountain Care’s network in Utah, Riverton Transitional Rehabilitation Center is under the same ideology. They strongly believe that each of their patients is special and unique, and deserves the highest respect and service possible. Their care and specialized programs meet the individualized needs of their patients and allow them to regain as much independence as possible and live life to its fullest potential.

After illness or surgery, rehabilitation is an essential component for a successful recovery. Riverton’s facilities offer physical, occupational, and speech therapy on both an inpatient and out-patient basis. 

“We see patients with joint replacements, but we also have a specialty in neurological patients, such as those who have experienced a stroke,” explains Kristy Rehfledt, administrator for Rocky Mountain Care’s Riverton facilities. “We work closely with the neurologists in the surrounding hospitals, and have experienced great outcomes.”

Therapy services are available to all qualifying patients seven days a week in a spacious therapy gym with a team of dedicated therapists.  These therapists have had professional training to assist with balance issues, fall prevention, cognitive (awareness) skills, complex medical conditions and incontinence.

“The staff who work here have a very high competency level,” says Kristy. “Not only that, but they all really enjoy what they are doing, and enjoy being here, which is a big part of why it is so comfortable for patients.”

Don’t wait until it is a necessity to come experience the difference at Riverton Transitional Rehabilitation Center. You can take a tour at any time by dropping by 3419 West 12600 South in Riverton to see what makes it feel just like home.
