Who We Are

Approximately the northern half of the province is served by the Saskatoon Rehabilitation Centre and the southern half by the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre in Regina. We are also affiliated with the College of Medicine University of Saskatchewan.
As a teaching and research unit of the University of Saskatchewan we participate in the training of medical students, other allied professionals, and post-graduate medical residents.

What We Do
Programs within the Rehabilitation Care Group provide assessment and rehabilitation to patients and their families in a holistic, timely, cost-effective, goal-orientated, interdisciplinary manner. The care provided is patient centered and based on current evidence in medical research.
Patients served have a variety of physical, cognitive, and/or psychological impairments and disabilities. They normally reside within the province, primarily in the northern half, but may be a resident outside of the province in some circumstances. Service is provided to help patients realize their full potential.
