Frye Regional offers comprehensive rehabilitation and acute care for inpatients as well as outpatient physical, occupational and speech therapy. In addition, we have a physical therapy office in Caldwell County specializing in orthopedic and sports injuries.
We provide highly experienced therapists, a specially trained rehabilitation physician (physiatrist) and specialized nurses that provide care in a family-oriented environment where individuals who have suffered an illness or injury have the opportunity to rebuild their lives and a higher level of function.
Our services are close to home for people throughout the Greater Hickory Metro Area, thus eliminating the inconvenience of overnight hotel stays or enduring long drives to hospitals out of the area.
You don’t need to travel far from home for high quality inpatient rehabilitation. If you or a loved one are recovering from a stroke, orthopedic injury, traumatic brain injury, or other serious condition and are 18 years or older, Frye Regional’s Inpatient Rehabilitation Center has the resources to help you recover.

All patients receive three hours of one-on-one therapy - five of seven days per week. Patients and families are the center of setting goals for patients to return to the lifestyle they desire. Each patient has an individualized plan of care and treatments tailored to their needs as well as that of their caregivers.
