Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital

Wheaton, IL


Since first opening in 1972, Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital, part of Northwestern Medicine, has stood apart not only for its exceptional care, but also its serene environment. Offering equal parts healing sanctuary and innovative rehabilitative care, the hospital, located on a wooded campus, was designed to match the naturally holistic philosophy of physical medicine and rehabilitation – caring for the mind, body and spirit. The hospital contains an array of unique features to meet the specific needs of the adult and pediatric patients served there. Rooms not only accommodate patients and their families with a high degree of comfort and privacy, but also offer beautiful views of the tranquil campus. Just beyond the lobby is a garden giving patients an opportunity to experience the healing effect of interacting with nature including flowers, trees and water features. On the ground floor, a labyrinth connecting all the buildings provides patients and visitors a place of solitude and reflection. Recognition of the ever-changing nature of medicine and the advances in rehabilitation technology led to the addition of the Marianjoy Assistive Rehabilitation Technology Institute in 2014. The Institute combines the latest innovations in rehabilitation technology with the caring spirit of the clinicians and therapists who practice there. The highlight of this space is a warm-water therapy pool, surrounded by a glass ceiling and walls, overlooking a rain garden. The Tellabs Center for Neurorehabilitation and Neuroplasticity (TCNN) opened in 2016 and offers 4,800 square feet of treatment space. Designed to expand treatment options for patients with neurological impairments, TCNN contains the latest advancements in technology including robotic exoskeletons and virtual reality equipment. Large windows embrace the space on all sides offering calming views of nature, while the clean lines, tall ceilings and open concept of the therapy area mimic the feeling of the wide-open spaces that surround the campus. Patients who choose Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital find a tranquil setting that is designed to heal the mind, body and the spirit.
