Inpatient Rehabilitation

Altru’s Inpatient Rehabilitation’s goal is to maximize or restore a patient’s functional level of independence for discharge to a community setting (home, assisted living or basic care).

Our services stem back to 1958, when the University of North Dakota’s Medical Center Rehabilitation Hospital opened its doors. In 1968, we became one of the first rehabilitation inpatient programs in the United States accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). Altru maintains that accreditation today. Altru's Inpatient Rehabilitation holds a distinguished place in the regional medical community, and has, over the years, provided care to thousands of individuals.

To learn more information about admission, please call 701.780.2569.
