Rehabilitation at Maui Memorial Medical Center (MMMC)
Our experts at MMMC provide inpatient therapy to patients hospitalized with illnesses and injuries, as well as those recovering from surgeries.
For example, a therapist may:
- Show you exercises to begin your recovery after joint surgery.
- Provide speech, swallowing or cognitive (thinking) skills retraining after a stroke. Our rehab team is part of our nationally recognized stroke program.
- Give you and your caregivers helpful information to improve your recovery as you transition home. For example, you might learn exercises you can do at home and get advice on how to modify your daily activities so they're safer and easier for you.
- Provide care for complex wounds.
As needed, the team will continue to support your recovery in the outpatient setting even after your hospital stay.
