New England Rehabilitation Hospital of Portland

New England Rehabilitation Hospital of Portland

New England Rehabilitation Hospital of Portland (NERHP), a joint venture of Maine Medical Center and HealthSouth, is the only free-standing acute rehabilitation hospital in Maine. Since 1986, we have been providing quality inpatient and outpatient physical rehabilitation services. Our results-oriented therapy programs help people improve their level of function and reclaim their role in the community, at home and at work. 

NERHP provides comprehensive inpatient and outpatient medical rehabilitation to patients with stroke, brain injury, cardiac, pulmonary, spinal cord injury, amputation, and other neuro-muscular impairments. Our primary function is to provide diagnostic and treatment services to people requiring physical rehabilitation in order to achieve their highest level of independence in the home and the community.
