What it is

A stroke can happen at any age. The physical, mental and emotional impact can range from mild to severe. A stroke is a brain injury, and as with other types of brain injuries, each person’s challenges and rehabilitation goals vary and may change over time.  Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute provides comprehensive care for people with a stroke. No matter where you are in your journey, Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute is the place to be.

Inpatient services

Stroke rehabilitation often begins while you are still in the hospital. Once your condition has stabilized, your medical care team will recommend the treatment that is best for you before you leave the hospital. In some circumstances, your physician may recommend comprehensive rehabilitation in a hospital setting where we can provide you with 24-hour medical care.

Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute provides inpatient rehabilitation for patients recovering from a stroke at: 

Abbott Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis

United Hospital in St. Paul.

Sub-acute inpatient care is available through the Transitional Rehabilitation Program (TRP) at our Courage Kenny facility in Golden Valley. This site is licensed as a skilled nursing facility (SNF). Therapy is provided at an intensity that best fits your needs and goals.

Services are available across the lifespan – from pediatric to adults. A referral from a provider is needed for most services.
