Our Approach and results

Combining the latest technologies and research with a unique, transdisciplinary team approach, we involve the patient and family, the referring physician, the physiatrist and the complete team of rehabilitation professionals in each step of the recovery process. Focused on helping our patients do the things they want to do, we address each individual’s traits, passions and values to restore him or her to the most full, independent lifestyle possible.

We don’t just provide therapy, we rehabilitate lives, families, hopes and dreams. We grasp hands and lock arms with patients and families, guiding them through each step to recovery. We connect personally with them. We cheer. We shed tears. Chapter by chapter, we play important roles in each others’ life stories.

All of Madonna’s programs offer:

  • An intensive therapy program that is available seven days a week;
  • Programs with less intensive therapy, depending on the needs of the patient;
  • 24-hour rehabilitation nursing and physician supervision
  • A continuum of inpatient and outpatient programs to provide services in your home or in Madonna’s day-treatment program


The difference between a specialized rehabilitation hospital like Madonna and any other kind of therapy program is the focus on “real life” skills. Exercise and treatment are important, but at Madonna the process of relearning work skills, cooking, driving, writing or handling finances means the patient will have what it takes to get back to his or her life again. It’s that environment of “hope” where ordinary desires become extraordinary realizations.

Experienced staff and state-of-the art equipment allow Madonna programs to be progressive and innovative. Spacious treatment areas, many private rooms with roll-in showers, and lounges for family gatherings all contribute to a comfortable rehabilitation experience.

Plans are begun early to make a smooth transition from the hospital to home. More than 80 percent of Madonna patients who complete their program return to their previous living situation.

A patient’s progress is monitored throughout the rehabilitation process. By comparing scores of similar patient groups, it is possible to estimate how much care and time are needed to reach each person’s specific goals.

The value of Madonna’s experienced staff, who treat thousands of patients every year, means that each therapist can offer the latest techniques and methods to produce the best results for every patient.

For some, hope comes from a place deep within. Others are motivated or inspired from an outside source. For many, hope is nurtured and cultivated – and that’s the Madonna experience.
