Transitional & Acute Rehabilitation

Transitional Rehab Image


Superior care focusing on the total well-being of the patient, rather than just their ailment, is what makes Santé a trusted leader for rehabilitation services. Also referred to as post-acute, sub-acute, or post-hospital rehabilitation, transitional rehabilitation at a Santé property provides the ideal setting for a compassionate continuum of care. At Santé, the goal is to help you reach your highest level of functioning and return you back home.

Santé is also proud to offer our Extensive Active Rehabilitation program (EAR). The EAR program or Acute Inpatient Rehabilitation provides intense interdisciplinary services that are necessary to restore loss of function and optimize recovery. Although the amount and intensity of therapy varies by the primary diagnoses and comorbidities, only patients who are medically stable are candidates for EAR rehabilitative care. Currently, Santé contracts with Arizona Foundation, BCBS, Humana and Cigna. The EAR program is available at our Mesa and Chandler locations.
