For the health of your residents & the strength of your center, the right rehab service is key.
The right rehab service is key.
Though it may seem that all rehab providers offer similar services, look closer and you’ll find a world of differences that can affect your patients’ health and your center’s future. Key Rehab is intentionally different – in the range of services we provide, the systems we adhere to, even the locations in which we provide those services. We offer open and honest communication, years of experience, and the mechanisms necessary for our clients to provide the highest quality of therapy in a results oriented and cost effective manner.
Our business and reputation has been built on a solid foundation of patient care, client satisfaction, staff satisfaction, and sound financial and organizational management. Each of those principals plays a crucial role as we work to meet the needs of patients, residents, families, health care providers and their businesses.
Discover the difference Key Rehab can make for you.
The key to growth in your center begins in our corporate offices.
At Key Rehab, our mission statement comes not from a corporate boardroom, but from real life experiences in working with people in need of rehabilitation. We provide leadership and support to meet the needs of patients, their families, staff, and you – our client.
You can see those elements reflected in the attitudes and accomplishments of the people who guide Key Rehabilitation.

Our commitment to resident care—Key Rehab is dedicated to meeting the physical, mental and psycho-social needs of all residents at all times.
We offer a multi-disciplinary approach to Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech-Language Pathology and Psychology services. We meet patient and provider needs across the entire continuum of post-acute care.
As a privately owned company, we have the ability to respond quickly to the needs of our clients as well as the legal and financial demands of Congress, CMS, and insurance providers.
With a staff of more than 800 therapists, Key Rehab currently provides therapy and psychology services for more than 150 locations throughout Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Tennessee and in Oklahoma.
As we work with you to develop your rehabilitation services, we’ll pay particular attention to helping you contain costs and maximizing your business’ strengths.
Key Rehab services are perfectly adaptable for every point on the rehabilitation health care continuum.
- Subacute and rehab-to-home centers contract with us to provide a completely integrated rehab department in their locations at cost effective rates.
- Intermediate, residential, and assisted living communities incorporate Key Rehab therapists on-site to improve resident health and allow aging in place, at no cost to the center as Key Rehab does all the billing to Medicare and other payers.
- Community hospitals, critical access hospitals, home health agencies, and outpatient clinics contract with Key Rehab to outsource their entire department or to augment their staff with Key Rehab professionals
Developing a perfect fit for your facility is key.
No matter which broad category of rehabilitative care best describes your business, the needs of your center are unique. So from the very beginning, Key Rehab works with you to find workable solutions that meet your needs.
In every case, Key Rehab provides quality staffing, experienced local management, nurse/MDS/survey consulting, software technologies and billing, and intermediary relationships. Our systems are designed to integrate seamlessly with your billing and clinical software in order to capture real-time treatment data in a timely and accurate manner.
While every Key Rehab program is unique to the client, there are some elements of support that all of our programs offer, including:
- Highly trained, credentialed therapists
- Individual resident treatments
- Cooperative, communicative multidisciplinary teams
- Dedicated Program Coordinators
- Local Management Structure

The key is communication at every level.
Our mission, focus and organizational structure gives us the ability to intently focus on customer needs and therapist development. We are large enough to provide a stable relationship, yet small enough to give you true, individual attention.
Key Rehabilitation, Inc. works with you and your center staff to integrate your rehab program.
That program will be custom built for you and your needs. As situations change, the program can be modified to immediately match the needs of your residents and your center.
At the core of your Key Rehab team is your Program Coordinator. The Program Coordinator is a licensed therapist who heads a team of therapists solely dedicated to your center. In many ways, the Program Coordinator can be thought of as a department head for your center.
The Program Coordinator has four areas of responsibility:
- Identifying residents’ needs
- Patient treatments
- Staff scheduling
- Participation in your center’s meetings
Your Program Coordinator is mentored and guided by a Key Rehab Regional Supervisor (who is also a licensed therapist or nurse.) Each Regional Supervisor has responsibility for 3 – 5 Program Coordinators, and is responsible for making sure staffing and services are in place to meet your needs.
As the tenure of Key Rehab demonstrates, ours is a business model that has been proven to work in community after community. Over half our current clients have been with us for seven years or more.
The key is turning paperwork into green.
The old adage that the job’s not finished until the “paperwork” is done is never truer than when that job is rehabilitation paid for by Medicare or other insurance providers.
Key Rehabilitation utilizes a state of the art scheduling, documentation and billing system. The automated system schedules each piece of clinical documentation due and provides alerts about future due dates. Using the system, therapists are able to maintain productivity rates equivalent to realistic clinical standards as well as provide quality therapy planning and provision of services.
In addition to our state-of-the-art documentation system, Key Rehab has exhaustively researched and continually monitors Medicare therapy documentation requirements, then we provide extensive training on the requirements. But, we don’t stop there - we even have our own “in-house” RN clinical review team to double check that all documentation meets medicare’s guidelines for reimbursement.
As a result, Key Rehab is able to generate high quality clinical documentation that reflects patient needs, progress, and professional skilled services in accordance with Medicare expectations and guidelines.
The frustration of providing unnecessary or unaccepted services is eliminated.
Our business can play a key role in your center’s financial success.
