Our programs are delivered in a comforting environment, together with staff, equipment and facilities at the forefront of rehabilitation.
We have fully equipped gymnasiums and outdoor space for functional activities, as well as a state of the art hydrotherapy pool. These advanced facilities ensure patients achieve their rehabilitation goals.
The Day Only Rehabilitation Program can consist of a combination of physiotherapy, occupational therapy or hydrotherapy. Hydrotherapy uses the resistance of water to strengthen muscles and improve coordination, stability and balance. The temperature of the water increases circulation, reduces muscle spasm and decreases pain.
Our Rehabilitation Services include:
- Orthopaedic Rehabilitation
- Cardiac Reconditioning
- Pulmonary/Respiratory Rehabilitation
- Neurological Rehabilitation (Please enquire to determine eligibility)

- Bariatric Rehabilitation
- Pain Management

Our programs are run by a multi-disciplinary team involving Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists who are supported by Rehabilitation Specialists. Additional support is provided by a Dietician and Social Worker as required.
Starting a Day Only Rehabilitation Program
Whether you are coming directly from Inpatient care or from home, we aim to make the process of starting your rehabilitation simple and trouble free.
A referral from your Doctor is required and can be faxed, emailed or delivered to the Day Only Rehabilitation Coordinator.
What to Bring
Comfortable clothing that is suitable for exercise and appropriate closed and non-slip footwear for the gym and pool area is recommended. You will also need your bathing suit and towel for hydrotherapy, and any prescribed mobility aides.
Our staff are available to provide health fund checks upon request before or after your referral to our Day Rehabilitation program. Depending on your hospital health care cover, there may be no additional costs. There are no additional costs for WorkCover, CTP or DVA.
As part of this program, the hospital can provide you with a local pick up/drop off service for a small fee. Please contact us for more information regarding the transport service.
