What is an outpatient rehabilitation facility?

An outpatient rehabilitation facility is a place where you get services that help you recover or improve a condition. These facilities are free-standing, and you don’t need to check into the hospital. Facilities may offer:

  • Occupational therapy
  • Physical therapy
  • Respiratory therapy
  • Speech-language therapy
