We're Raising the Bar
At St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Port Huron, we are continually working to raise the bar for our patients to live productive and active lives.
“Rehabilitation is exuberance over small gains. It is banishing ‘has been’ to replace it with the worth of being and becoming. It is negation of labels, because only pigeons fit pigeonholes.” -Dittmar, 1989
If you have a patient who might benefit from rehabilitation, please contact a Mercy Inpatient Rehabilitation Referral Coordinator, at 810-966-3160.
