HealthSouth Yuma Rehabilitation Hospital is an inpatient 40 bed acute rehab hospital with an onsite outpatient facility in Yuma, Arizona. It is a beautiful facility with new equipment and a large gym.

Exciting News for HealthSouth! HealthSouth is becoming Encompass Health. Our main corporate office has already transitioned to our new name however our hospitals won't make this transition untill later this year. Please be aware that some emails may reflect this new change.

We offer our patients the latest technology such as the Auto Ambulator, Smart Step by Adante, Bioness L300 and H200, and Interactive Metronome. Our friendly therapists have a wide range of experience and are teamwork oriented. Many of our therapists have specialized training to include Neuro-IFRAH certification, LSVT training for the BIG program, Interactive Metronome Certification, DriveAble Certification and Reo go. The majority of our population is adult/geriatric with a variety of neurological and orthopedic diagnoses.

Note from Therapy Director: Our unique area of the country offers many different opportunities for fun and exploration. We are approximately 3 hours from Phoenix, San Diego and Tucson. We are close enough to ski slopes for a weekend trip. We have sand dunes for recreational sports (they are the dunes in Star Wars and Space Balls). We hold the record for the most recorded hours of sunshine in a year, in the world! Summers are warm, but with the low humidity and close proximity to water sports at the Colorado River, we stay nice and cool. The winter here is beautiful. No coats required and outdoor activities are a must. Many of our therapists enjoy hiking, rock climbing, golfing, volleyball, range shooting and boating.
