A leader in rehabilitative medicine

It's important to choose a rehabilitation facility with a track record of successful outcomes. View our patient outcomes here. Paul Rosenthal Rehabilitation Center at Northern Dutchess Hospital has received the highest level of accreditation awarded to rehabilitation facilities from the Commission for Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

Accreditation demonstrates to patients that we:
  • Are committed to reducing risk
  • Address health and safety concerns
  • Respect cultural and individual preferences
  • Provide excellent quality of care

Rebuild your life

Through attentive, daily therapy sessions, we help you maximize your independence. We help you:
  • Restore skills such as dressing, washing and eating
  • Regain function and movement
  • Increase daily activities
  • Improve endurance and strength
  • Overcome challenges
  • Optimize your individual abilities
  • Live life confidently
  • Address complex needs

Admissions criteria

Our location offers a far greater level of therapy than a short-term rehab facility, such as a nursing home. We care for patients who:

  • Are 18 years of age or older
  • Require at least two skilled therapies: physical, occupational and/or speech
  • Receive three hours of therapy daily for five to six days per week
  • Need inpatient rehabilitation medicine managed by a doctor
  • Require around-the-clock supervision from nurses trained in rehabilitation medicine
  • Have a discharge plan

We are not able to care for patients who:

  • Require dialysis
  • Are ventilator dependent
  • Require telemetry


Rehabilitation is typically covered in full or part by most health insurance plans, including Medicare and Medicaid.
