Hughston Orthopedic Hospital's Rehabilitation Center was ranked among the top 10 percent in the U.S. by the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehab.

The center was scored against other U.S. rehabilitation centers that subscribe to UDS. The UDSmr looked at several components to score centers, including the severity of patients' medical conditions, length of stay efficiency and patient improvement while at the center.

Hughston's Rehabilitation Center, located on the third floor of the hospital, offers acute inpatient rehabilitation services. It admits patients with illnesses and injuries such as stroke, spinal cord injury, amputation, joint replacement and burns.

Individualized programs at the center address physical and medical problems as well as difficulties with everyday activities like eating and talking.
