Mercy Medical Center Recognized on Top Rehab Centers List


Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids has been recognized on Newsweek America’s Top Physical Rehab Centers 2022 list.

According to a press release sent by Mercy, the list highlights the best inpatient rehabilitation facilities in the country based on quality of care, quality of service, quality of follow-up care, accommodation and amenities.

Newsweek rankings are compiled on a national and regional basis. The 25 states with the most installs were rewarded individually, and the remaining states were grouped into four regions: Northeast, Midwest, West, and South.

Mercy was valued in the Midwest region and was the only hospital in Iowa ranked in the top 10.

“Mercy’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Unit (IRU) is proud to be recognized as one of the nation’s most highly regarded physical rehabilitation facilities,” said IRU Medical Director Carla Schulz, MD. , FAAFP, in the press release. “We strive to take excellent care of our patients and we have good results. This recognition reflects our remarkable teamwork and is further proof that the care we provide to our patients is effective, efficient and patient-centered.

Newsweek honored 255 hospitals in total, based on the results of an online survey of more than 4,400 physical rehabilitation experts.

Earlier this year, Mercy’s IRU received the Uniform Data System (UDS) for Medical Rehabilitation Top Performer Award in recognition of outstanding performance in its rehabilitation program, according to the release.

Additionally, in 2020 Mercy’s IRU received a three-year accreditation from CARF International (Certified Acute Rehab Facility), which was achieved amid the COVID-19 pandemic. CARF-accredited facilities must meet the highest standards and demonstrate a demonstrated commitment to the best patient care.
