FAQs

What is the UM Rehabilitation Network?

The University of Maryland Rehabilitation Network (UMRN) is a coordinated system of inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation providers working together to help people recover from illness or injury. Offering a full range of physical rehabilitation services, the network brings together expert teams of committed care providers from facilities all across the state, ranging from community hospitals to a large academic medical center. All network members are part of the University of Maryland Medical System.

What does it mean for patients?

The UM Rehabilitation Network takes advantage of a collaborative team approach. Rehabilitation professionals at all facilities work together to provide consistent and appropriate care at every stage of recovery. The network offers patients flexibility, quality and access to a broad spectrum of expertise. With locations throughout Maryland, UMRN provides convenience and access to a wide range of specialized and unique rehabilitation programs, such as balance, aquatic (water) therapy and hand therapy. The bottom line: If your local hospital does not have a service you are looking for, another facility in the network probably does. Patients and their families can have peace of mind knowing that a coordinated team of experts is working together to make sure they receive the highest quality rehabilitation services available.
