Downers Grove, Award-Winning Rehabilitation Therapy

After an illness, injury, or surgery, your doctor may prescribe a short-term sub-acute rehabilitation stay so you have access to the therapy you need to get back to your life. And many people choose Downers Grove Rehab & Nursing to meet their therapy needs.


Our innovative, award-winning approach to rehab will help you get back to your life. Each patient enjoys a private room, ideal for recovery, and access to our state-of-the-art rehabilitation gym. And when you’re not working your way toward health, you’ll be able to relax in front of our fireplace, enjoy a delicious meal, or relax in one of our welcoming common areas. We want you to feel at home with us, until you’re strong enough to return to your own home.

Personalized Attention

We know nothing is more important than the trust between our patients and their caregivers, so Downers Grove is committed to safe staffing ratios, allowing each patient to receive the personalized care and attention they deserve. Our facility consistently ranks among the best-staffed in the nation for both nurse aides and RNs, according to CMS reports.

Holding Ourselves to the Highest Standards

Joint Commission accreditation is not mandatory for skilled nursing centers, but Downers Grove Rehab & Nursing appreciates the commitment to quality that The Joint Commission’s standards represent, so we gladly apply. We’ve earned the Joint Commission’s prestigious Gold Seal of Approval, along with an additional Post-Acute Care Certification, recognizing our effective care transitions and prevention of unnecessary hospitalizations.

Proven Outcomes

Our care staff, social service teams, therapists, and providers work together towards a  common goal of returning our patients to home quickly and safely. Thanks to this teamwork, we recently were named a Best Nursing Home by U.S. News & World Report for both Short-Term Rehabilitation and Long-Term Care, which only 4.5% of nursing homes earned. We also consistently earn an Above Average ranking for short-term care by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

Advanced Clinical Care

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound oaf cure. That’s why Downers Grove is certified by Vohra Wound Physicians as a Center of Excellence for Wound Management. Our certified wound care nurse and our clinical team have undergone specialized training to prevent and treat all types of chronic and complex wound and skin issues, reducing the need to send our patients out to wound care centers or hospitals.

Valuing Our Employees

We value the hard work of our team members through a supportive environment, flexible scheduling, a generous benefits package, and opportunities to advance their careers. And in return, our employees are loyal to Downers Grove Rehab & Nursing – with a lower staff turnover rate than other organizations in our industry.

Committed to Stopping COVID-19

In the early days of the pandemic, Downers Grove Rehab & Nursing chose to serve our community by opening a COVID Recovery Unit, where low-acuity, COVID-19 positive, older adult patients could continue to recover and receive rehabilitation before returning home. To date, this unit
has served over 400 patients from 4 different states. And we’re still continuing the fight, with COVID-19 vaccination rates for both patients and staff above the national averages.

Caring for Body and Soul

What truly sets Downers Grove Rehab & Nursing apart is our faith-based, non-profit mission. Our call is to serve each individual “in the name of Jesus Christ,” and we do that by investing in our staff and our patients, not shareholders. With a chaplain on every campus, our patients get the support and encouragement they need.
