Ernest Health, a nationally recognized healthcare provider, has announced the opening of Green Bay Rehabilitation Hospital.

The 40-bed medical rehabilitation hospital provides specialized rehabilitative care to patients who are recovering from disabilities caused by injuries, illnesses, or chronic medical conditions. This includes strokes, brain and spinal cord injuries, multiple traumas, various neurological and musculoskeletal disorders, cardiac and pulmonary conditions, amputations, and other medically complex conditions.

Green Bay Rehabilitation Hospital is Ernest Health’s first location in Wisconsin. They provide specialized inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services to patients within a 200-mile radius. 

“We’re proud to offer Ernest Health’s nationally recognized level of care and eager to serve northeast Wisconsin. We’re honored to become a part of Green Bay’s outstanding medical community,” says Michael Roffelsen, CEO of Green Bay Rehabilitation Hospital. 

The hospital’s services include physical, occupational, and speech therapy; rehabilitative nursing; respiratory therapy; dietary services; case management; pharmacy services; social work services; pain management; and more. A physician-led interdisciplinary healthcare team works with patients and family members to create individualized treatment plans to maximize recoveries. Patients are offered the latest in rehabilitative technology and equipment to enhance treatment options.

One example of medical technology offered at the hospital is Rise&Walk® from the Nashville-based company Healing Innovations, Inc. The innovative technology is designed for patients with neurological and mobility impairments. It supports gait training by synchronizing upper and lower extremity movements, providing a versatile neurorehabilitation station that combines robotic-assisted gait training, seated activities, and a balance support zone. The technology is developed in alignment with the latest research to promote neuroplasticity, a key factor in functional recovery.

Roffelsen says that incorporating technology allows them to enhance care for patients while tracking progress, keeping staff safe from injuries, and improving overall efficiency.

Green Bay Rehabilitation Hospital features all private patient rooms, each with private baths, a gym equipped with advanced rehabilitation equipment, and outdoor therapy areas. 

The Ernest Health Green Bay Rehabilitation Hospital is located at 1110 Kepler Drive and occupies the second and third floors of the Horizon Square Building.
