As the only rehabilitation hospital in Los Angeles County’s Health Services, Rancho serves a unique and vital place for research in patient recovery, rehabilitation, and reintegration. We continue to optimally leverage the rehabilitation medicine and clinical research capacities at Rancho that have evolved from the fusion of a long legacy of clinical excellence and dedication to a patient and family-centered approach to care delivered in a context sensitive to the importance of relationships.
