Roosevelt Warm Springs Rehabilitation and Specialty Hospitals


Roosevelt Warm Springs Rehabilitation and Specialty Hospitals

In July 2014, the Roosevelt Warm Spring Hospitals transitioned from ownership by State of Georgia to Augusta University Health. This brought together the Roosevelt legacy at Warm Springs with the state’s academic health system. "Augusta University Health has the unique knowledge and experience needed to preserve one of our state’s oldest and most revered assets," said Gov. Nathan Deal. "This move will assure that Georgians continue to receive compassionate and high-quality health care services."

Today, inpatient care is maximized through a two-hospital approach—The Roosevelt Long Term Acute Care Hospital provides services for the more medically complex patients while the Roosevelt Rehabilitation Hospital continues the hands-on-therapy and interdisciplinary teamwork second to none.

Roosevelt Warm Springs Rehabilitation and Specialty Hospitals: The healing power of serenity
  • Long Term Acute Care

    At Roosevelt Long Term Acute Care Hospital (RWSHL), patients are admitted from an acute care hospital, often from intensive care or step down units, and have an average length of stay with us of 25 days. Our patients are medically complex requiring multi-specialty medical services provided by board certified physicians making daily rounds and registered nurses providing 24 hour complete care. Completing the interdisciplinary team of professionals as needed by the patient may include respiratory therapist, physical therapist, occupational therapist, speech language pathologist, registered dietician, clinical pharmacist and case managers. We care for critically ill patients who have multiple co-morbidities, multi organ system failure and require specialized care.

  • Inpatient Rehabilitation Hospital

    Roosevelt Warm Springs Rehabilitation and Specialty Hospitals Rehabilitation Hospital (RWSHR) welcomes patients from all over the state of Georgia and surrounding states. Our patients are referred from acute care hospitals. Patients in a rehab facility participate in a very structured program including, building strength, endurance and self care while having medical issues managed. Our goal is to prepare patients to return home and resume their lives. We focus on early intervention for conditions affecting mobility, activities of daily living, swallowing and cognitive abilities. The sooner patients begin their rehabilitation, the better the outcomes tend to be. Our inpatient rehabilitation hospital offers patients the opportunity to get necessary complex medical care while getting back on track with their lives. We also offer psychological support, as physical trauma can be emotionally draining.

Prevent Secondary Strokes

Did you know that if you’ve had a stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA), you are more likely to have another one? Preventing a second stroke is vital! You can do your part by:

  • Seeing your physician regularly
  • Following your medication instructions as prescribed by your doctor
  • Maintaining healthy blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels

You can also make good lifestyle choices to prevent a second stroke. These include:

  • Saying NO to salty, fried, and fatty foods: You will benefit from eating a Mediterranean-type diet; rich in whole grains, vegetables, legumes, fruits, nuts, and seeds.
  • Get moving every day: Even if your activity needs modification due to your first stroke, try to get up and move around your house daily if you can. If you are worried, you may need a referral to an organized exercise program for safety.

Lifestyle choices are yours to make. Make them wisely to prevent a SECONDARY STROKE!

Stroke is the leading cause of adult disability in America. A stroke can reduce your mobility by up to 50 percent, especially if you are older. Once you've had a stroke, you are more likely to have another stroke, referred to as a “secondary stroke”.

Helping patients get their lives back after a stroke

As a patient in the Roosevelt Warm Springs Rehabilitation and Specialty Hospitals Rehabilitation Stroke Program, our goal is to help you regain your post-stroke activity levels and improve your quality of life. While you are with us, you will start thinking about life after therapy, including what skills you want to develop so that you can manage your health once you go home. Some important topics you should discuss with your physician, therapist, and medical team include:

  • Driving
  • Exercise
  • Leisure activities
  • Proper nutrition
  • Returning to work
  • Sexual activity
  • Traveling

We offer post-stroke education on all these topics in the hope that we can help you prevent another stroke from happening. For more information see the 2016 American Stroke Association Stroke Rehabilitation Guidelines.


You are now home and ready to return to driving. For many, driving is essential to a healthy lifestyle. The inability to drive can often cut into the amount of time you dedicate to healthy leisure activities and exercising. The good news is, between one-third and two-thirds of individuals who have had a stroke have been able to resume driving after one year.

Each state determines its own laws around driving after a stroke (or other neurological impairment). In Georgia, a medical impairment, such as a stroke, is either self-reported or reported by a judge, law enforcement, doctor, concerned citizen, or non-anonymous relative if there are safety concerns. A Fit-to-Drive test may be taken at the Georgia Department of Driver Services (DDS).

You will also need to be evaluated by your physician. When it comes to driving, please listen to your doctor and your family. They can help you decide when you should be able to return to driving... for your safety and for the safety of all those on the road.
