Children and families who come to ChildServe for inpatient rehabilitation can expect to receive great care. ChildServe's Inpatient Rehabilitation Medicine Program is designed to help children recovering from injury or illness transition from hospital to home. Our dedicated, credentialed staff are experienced in working with complex medical issues such as traumatic brain injuries, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries, vent dependency, burns, complications of prematurity, and developmental delays.

ChildServe's Inpatient Rehabilitation Medicine Program is located on the 21-bed Stelter-Fisher Transitional Care Unit on the ChildServe campus in Johnston, Iowa. Licensed and certified professionals provide specialty, pediatric care that addresses each child's developmental, medical, and rehabilitative needs in a family-centered, child-focused environment. In addition, through multiple learning opportunities, staff members assist parents with the education and support needed to successfully transition their child home.

At ChildServe, each child and family is supported by a care team that understands the child's needs. A care plan focusing on growth, development, and play-based treatment will be designed to transition the child home.
