Northern Arizona Healthcare welcomes Rehabilitation Hospital of Northern Arizona

Northern Arizona Healthcare extends a warm welcome to the Rehabilitation Hospital of Northern Arizona (RHNA), with whom we will partner in providing the right care at the right time in the right place.

Before RHNA opened in Flagstaff, patients needing acute inpatient rehabilitative services had to leave Northern Arizona to find similar care services elsewhere. Rehabilitation Hospital of Northern Arizona is committed to serving and helping people recover close to home. As an inpatient rehabilitation hospital, RHNA will provide a minimum of 3 hours of aggressive physical, occupational, and speech therapies daily to patients suffering from disabilities caused by injury or illness, with an intense focus to help patients regain their independence and transition back to their home setting.

Ernest Health, the parent company of RHNA, built RHNA as the first free standing acute rehabilitation hospital in Flagstaff to serve both Flagstaff and all Northern Arizona communities. Ernest Health operates 25 hospitals across the nation, 17 of which that are Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRF) similar to RHNA. This expertise in rehabilitation care will be a great benefit to the region to continue Ernest Health’s practice of having top performing Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities. Northern Arizona Healthcare has a long standing relationship with Ernest Health’s other Arizona hospital located in Prescott Valley, Mountain Valley Regional Rehabilitation Hospital, which ranks in the Top 10% of nearly 900 Inpatient Rehabilitation Facilities (IRF) nationally.

Rehabilitation Hospital of Northern Arizona has recently received The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval. The Joint Commission accreditation is recognized nationwide as a symbol of quality that reflects an organization’s commitment to meeting certain performance standards.

Patients well enough to leave NAH’s Flagstaff Medical Center, but still needing a high level of care, now have a place to support them in their transition. Rehabilitation Hospital of Northern Arizona provides a missing service greatly needed by the people we serve together. With 40-beds and all private rooms, RHNA is committed to partnering with our healthcare community to help ensure amazing care is provided close to home. We are proud to be working with RHNA and look forward to serving our community together.
