• Rehabilitation

  • St. Catherine Hospital is committed to providing personalized rehabilitation focused care, assisting patients and families to meet the challenges of recovery from an illness or injury. At evaluation, an individualized plan of care is established to guide patient treatment. It is our goal to help patients return to productive lives – back to their homes, their communities, friends and families.
