Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility

Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation Hospital (CCRH), operating under a joint venture management agreement with Select Medical, is a system of 3 inpatient rehabilitation facilities with locations in Avon, Beachwood, and Akron (Edwin Shaw) that specializes in the medical care of clinically complex patients while providing an intensive, interdisciplinary rehabilitation program.

Inpatient Admissions: Case Mix Index

2019 – 2020

In 2020, the acuity of patients admitted to CCRH also increased. In acute inpatient rehabilitation, case mix group (CMG) is an indication of the complexity of an individual patient and is determined by primary diagnosis, comorbidities, age, and functional assessment upon admission. A rehab hospital’s case mix index (CMI) is the cumulative measure determined by its patients’ individual CMGs. The higher the CMI, the more complex the patient population. CCRH’s overall CMI increased from 1.45 to 1.54 in 2020. This was driven by the increased acuity of patients seen across multiple diagnostic groups.

Cleveland Clinic Rehabilitation Hospital: Discharges

2019 – 2020

From 2019 to 2020, the number of patients discharged from CCRH increased from 3251 to 3876, with increases seen across most major diagnostic groups. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, inpatient rehabilitation facilities played an important role in helping patients severely affected by COVID transition to the community, and in ensuring that patients suffering from the consequences of other diseases and injuries were transitioned in a timely manner out of acute care units.
