Complete care for rehabilitation
A complete approach
Located at Legacy Good Samaritan Medical Center, Legacy Rehabilitation Institute of Oregon (RIO) is an inpatient rehabilitation facility offering the highest level of care available.
We offer patients and their families a complete approach –– round-the-clock medical and rehabilitation services in a caring environment, as well as therapy, skills training and counseling –– all in one location. That approach offers an extra level of care that sets us apart from other programs.
What is RIO?
Under the direction of doctors who specialize in rehabilitation (known as physiatrists), we create a personalized plan to best meet our patients’ needs that includes goals and a target date for discharge. Each week, the team meets to review and revise the plan to get the best possible results. Family members and patients are an important part of the team.
Legacy Rehabilitation Institute of Oregon was the first in the state to coordinate job training, counseling, and physical and occupational therapies in the same location. This coordinated approach remains the foundation for the positive results our patients enjoy.
Our team at RIO can help patients through a range of conditions, including:
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Brain injury
- Multiple sclerosis
- Multiple trauma
RIO is the first in the Pacific Northwest to offer the ZeroG® Gait and Balance Training System, a robotic body-weight support system. The system prevents falls and uses dynamic body weight support to allow patients to practice walking, perform balance exercises, and move from sitting to standing. Patients using the system may start exercising and walking faster and may have a shorter length of stay.
