Healing Garden

Kernan Hospital’s Healing Garden was designed as a rehabilitation tool for patients to help prepare them for their home and community environment when they leave the hospital.


The chapel is located on the terrace level. There are services offered every Sunday; please ask one of your caregivers for the time of the service, and let them know if you are interested in attending.


If you would like a member of the clergy to come visit you while you are a patient, we can call them and make them aware of your request, or you may call them directly.

Our cafeteria is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It offers a variety of meal choices.


Families are encouraged to label all patients' clothing and take items home for laundering. If this is not possible, free washers and dryers are available for patient and family use on each floor in the rehab center. You will need to bring detergent.


Local telephone service is free for all UM Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute patients. You may bill long distance calls to your own telephone calling card. If you have any trouble with your telephone service, please call the UM Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute operator (dial 0). If you need TTY (text telephone for the deaf) equipment, please speak with your nurse, speech therapist or case manager. Pay phones are located off the Grand Hall and on the Terrace Level near the conference center.
