We understand that this is a difficult time for you and your loved ones. Here are some questions that patients and families most commonly ask. If you cannot find the answer to your question here, please call our main line for more information: (808) 531-3511
In addition to toiletries we encourage all of our patients to bring at least 2 weeks worth of home medications and clothing. It is an important part of therapy to get you into your own clothes and functioning as you would at home or in your community.
What happens in my therapy sessions?
You will take an active part in therapy in 30 to 45 minute sessions throughout the day at least 5 days a week. Daily progress needs to be demonstrated and participation in therapy is a requirement.
We understand that family plays a crucial role in the recovery process. Since most of our rooms are semi-private we only allow one family member to stay overnight. Please speak with your case manager about overnight guest.
How often will I see my REHAB Doctor?
The difference between REHAB and other facilities is the close relationship and the level of interaction with your physician. Our doctors see patients at least 5-7 times a week.
What is a community pass? How do I get one?
Community passes gives you permission to leave the hospital campus for a designated time frame. You must speak with your doctor. Not all doctors will allow patients community passes.

How will my regular doctors know what happens at REAHB?
Your REHAB Physician will dictate a discharge summary that will be sent to your primary doctors.
Normally, the day before you leave arrangements will be finalized for; medication for one month, follow-ups with Primary Care Physicians (PCP), Medical Specialists and Outpatient Therapies.
