Ochsner Rehabilitation Hospital Named Best Physical Rehabilitation Center in Louisiana by Newsweek

NEW ORLEANS, La.Ochsner Rehabilitation Hospital ranked first in Louisiana in Newsweek’s 2022 list of America’s Best Physical Rehabilitation Centers. Newsweek worked with global market research and data firm Statista Inc., to conduct its annual online survey with more than 4,400 physical rehabilitation experts. A total of 11 rehabilitation facilities throughout the state were named to the Louisiana list, with Ochsner Rehabilitation Hospital taking the top spot.

Ochsner Rehabilitation Hospital, in partnership with Select Medical, provides personalized care and rehabilitation while recovering from medically complex conditions, including stroke, amputation, and brain, spinal cord, and orthopedic injuries. The hospital operates with the commitment to help patients retain function and independence for daily living following illness or injury.

“Ranked first by Newsweek is a great honor, and this recognition is a testament to the hard work and high-quality care provided by the entire team at Ochsner Rehabilitation Hospital. We are proud to care for our patients helping them reach their goals. At Ochsner Rehabilitation Hospital you will find the convenience and comfort of community-based care, along with the clinical expertise and national experience in medical rehabilitation,” said Neil Fedders, chief executive officer, Ochsner Rehabilitation Hospital.
