The road to recovery following a disabling illness, traumatic injury or orthopedic surgery can be a long one. The good news is, you don’t have to travel alone. At the Southern New England Rehabilitation Center, we are with you every step of the way.

As the recognized leader in rehabilitation, we have helped thousands of people return to health and independent living. As an affiliate of CharterCARE Health Partners, we can also help you access any hospital, nursing home, or home care you might need as you continue on your journey.

From the first meeting with our highly-trained staff, you will know you are in the right hands.

A history of rehabilitation

Helping people recover and live fuller lives is what we have done for the past two decades -- and continue to do today. When you are recovering, you want to regain independence and get back into your home setting safely and as soon as possible. We share those goals and will work to make them a reality.

Established in 1995, the Southern New England Rehabilitation Center is known for comprehensive rehabilitation services. The Center’s skilled staff of professionals lead by a board certified rehabilitation physician provides a full range of coordinated rehabilitation care. Our clinical expertise and compassion make a big difference as we develop individualized plans of care for the unique needs of each patient. Our medical staff is comprised of physicians board-certified in rehabilitation medicine and internal medicine. We are your advocates as you rehabilitate and recover.

Our 24-bed inpatient center offers rehabilitation programs for people who have experienced serious injury or illness that limits their abilities to function in everyday settings. Because each patient is unique, we make sure treatment plans suit each patient's specific needs and goals.

Khin Sein Yin, MD, the Center's medical director, was Fellowship trained in Spinal Cord Injury Medicine at University of Washington/Puget Sound VA Hospital in Seattle. In addition to treating inpatients, Dr. Yin leads an outpatient clinic for pain management and conditions including spinal cord injury and Parkinson’s disease.

The Center’s clinical staff maintains academic affiliations to help train future rehabilitation professionals. Our annual educational conference for medical and rehabilitation professionals is regionally recognized.

Additionally, we support educational events with community organizations, including the American Stroke Association, Multiple Sclerosis Society, Brain Injury Association of RI and the Arthritis Foundation, and host support groups.
