Champion Partners in Rehab at Gadsden

Champion Partners in Rehab at Gadsden features 33 private suites with private baths on the Gadsden Health & Rehab campus. We are dedicated to providing compassionate rehabilitative care to residents following a hospital stay, surgery, illness or injury. We specialize in short-term and long-term skilled nursing care, customized to your needs, incorporating the latest techniques and treatments.


Post-hospital, post-acute, or short stay rehabilitation care is designed to improve a person’s transition back home following surgery, illness or injury. Short stay rehab residents no longer need the acute care setting of a hospital but still require a high level of clinical and rehabilitative care to ensure a speedy recovery. The goal of the program is to provide the highest level of rehabilitation and skilled nursing care to residents while facilitating the transition, as quickly and safely as possible, from hospital to home. Post-acute rehabilitation stays typically last twenty-one days or less.

Selecting a short stay rehab or post-acute provider is a critically important decision as the clinical team can significantly impact the success of treatment. It’s important to choose a short stay rehab program with a demonstrated track record of success and a proven commitment to clinical excellence and resident-driven care.

Comprehensive Care​

Surgery or illness can take away your ability to carry out your daily tasks independently. Don’t let a small setback keep you from recovery. Our highly experienced team at Rehab at Gadsden offers specialized treatment and therapy options for a diverse range of difficulties.

From regaining your physical abilities to practicing your cognitive skills, we can identify any speech, occupational or physical requirements you may need, and utilize our extensive team of trained professionals to provide premier services in your local area.

Our facility doesn’t just offer personalized therapy, such as joint replacement rehabilitation or communication skills, but we also provide routine and emergency services required for medical needs such as cardiac recovery, wound care management and other essential services.

Personalized Recovery​

Following our mission and vision, our primary goal  is to provide you or your loved ones with a personalized recovery plan that:

• Offers superior quality services

• Enhances your quality of life

• Uses cost-effective solutions

• Is personalized to your specific needs

Our personalized care begins with a caring patient diagnosis of your needs. Rehabilitation is a very personal journey, so no two individuals who have undergone the same procedure need the exact same rehabilitation services and progress in the same way.

As your local Nursing Facility, Gadsden Rehab offers the long term or short term care needed to give you or your loved one the best chance at a full recovery in a comfortable, safe environment.

Premier Rehabilitation in Gadsden, Alabama​

With our skilled team and proven rehabilitation treatment options, you or your loved one will enjoy a safe, beneficial stay for a short period or extended time.

Today's rehab patient might be an active senior citizen recovering from a knee replacement before returning to the golf course, a grandmother recovering from a stroke, or a young woman receiving physical therapy to recover from an auto accident. Personalized treatment begins at admission with a therapy screening that takes into consideration each patient’s medical condition and their ability to endure extensive rehabilitation therapy.
