Sandra and Leon Levine Pediatric Inpatient Rehabilitation Center
Opening in August 2019, The Sandra and Leon Levine Pediatric Inpatient Rehabilitation Center at Prisma Health Children’s Hospital–Midlands will be the first center of its kind in South Carolina.
Bringing light, changing lives
Because an inpatient pediatric rehabilitation program hasn’t existed in South Carolina before now, patients and families have faced challenges when they had to go out-of-state for care. We’re happy to announce our new center bridges this gap.
A comprehensive, interdisciplinary patient- and family-centered program
Our mission is to maximize the child or young adult’s functional potential, quality of life and reintegration into their home, school and community.
Children and teens who will benefit from comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation services include those with:
- Brain injury, spinal cord injury, or multi-trauma after a car accident or other trauma.
- Brain or spinal cord infections or tumors.
- Acute stroke or anoxic brain injury.
- Loss of function after major surgery or a prolonged illness or hospital stay.
Who we are
Our care team specializes in functional ability, offering medications, therapies and programs to restore skills and mobility to those children and teens facing temporary or permanent disabilities and loss of function.
To maximize functional progress and optimize recovery, we work closely with:
- Physical therapists
- Occupational therapists
- Speech language therapists
- Cognitive education specialist
- Recreational therapist
- Music therapist
- Social worker and case manager
- Respiratory therapists
