Well, I think that you want to be in a place that has a bona fide record of being a high-quality facility provider, with staff who have a strong commitment. You would say that everyone in the industry has a commitment to rehabilitation, but there clearly are facilities that stand out, that have a track record of accreditation, that have met and exceeded the requirements and standards for rehabilitation care, time after time. I also think it’s important to look at facilities who have an active involvement in research, and have the ability to integrate their research efforts with their clinical practice. And I say that because often times we discover many wonderful things in rehabilitation, but we don’t get it to the bedside. And so if you’re at a facility that really integrates those concepts of research and clinical care, I think that also helps you understand what facility will stand out for you.
