Our New and Improved Facility

The Rehabilitation Institute of Northwest Florida is located in a newly renovated facility offering patients private rooms, larger areas for rehabilitation, and an upscale dining area. The Rehabilitation Institute of Northwest Florida just completed a new expansion in September 2018 and includes adding 10 new private inpatient rooms (for a total of only 30 so we can provide personalized care); four equipped for bariatric patients, an expanded physical therapy gym, new landscaping, and an outdoor therapy garden that will foster the patient's ability to interact with nature while working on functional activities in a safe environment.
