COVID Rehabilitation

Outpatient Rehabilitation Services for those suffering from post-COVID symptoms.


COVID-19 can have effects on physical, cognitive or mental health for weeks to months after initial diagnosis. Ellenville Regional Hospital’s COVID Rehabilitation Program is dedicated to providing care to patients suffering from post-COVID symptoms.


What symptoms do we address?

COVID has different effects on everyone, but our team will create an individualized program that addresses your specific needs and symptoms. Some of the common effects from COVID that will be addressed in our rehabilitation program include:

  • Cough
  • Chest Pain
  • Shortness of breath
  • Reduced endurance levels
  • Muscle aches and body pains
  • Muscle weakness and atrophy
  • Decreased balance and coordination


How do I know if this is right for me?

Ellenville Regional Hospital offers this program to anyone that has tested positive for COVID-19 and is suffering from the long-term effects. These symptoms can be addressed in our Outpatient Rehab Department. Individuals can simply get a prescription from their PCP with diagnosis of deconditioning and be evaluated.


Recovery Care and Services

Our Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech and Language Pathology departments will complete your evaluation to determine your specialized care. Based on the initial evaluation, an individualized plan of care will be developed and you will receive a written home program as well. Patients are typically seen 2-3x a week for at least 4 weeks.
