The Comprehensive Integrated Inpatient Rehabilitation (CIIR) Program at MedStar Good Samaritan is located within our hospital building. As a result, we are able to provide our patients with rehabilitation care and acute care services all under one roof - and so can offer continuous and comprehensive expert care. Our partnership with MedStar National Rehabilitation Network enables us to offer expert, specialized care in a state-of-the-art facility. Since 1971, our high standards of quality care have earned us accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). In addition, we have achieved CARF accreditation as a Stroke Specialty program since 2007.
Your treatment team—along with your input—will develop an individualized plan of care focusing on your capabilities rather than disabilities. This positive approach allows our rehabilitation professionals to help you return to your highest levels of independence.
Our complete spectrum of services includes: support groups, home healthcare services, and additional follow-up care. Quite simply, we find this winning combination of expertise, support programs, and medical and surgical services best for our patients and their families.

- Assisting with communication skills
- Providing patient and family education, counseling and training
