The Helen M. Simpson Rehabilitation Hospital, part of the PinnacleHealth Community Campus in Lower Paxton Township, ranks in the top 10 percent of inpatient rehabilitation facilities, according to the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation’s annual Program Evaluation Model Report Card.
The data system is the country’s largest database of rehabilitation cases. The report card measures institutions’ efficiency and effectiveness adjusted for the type and severity of cases dealt with, Pinnacle said.
This year’s rankings are the fifth since the program began, and are based on 2010 data. The Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation is a nonprofit affiliated with the University at Buffalo, part of the State University of New York system.
