Local Rehabilitation Hospital Unveils New Name

July 20, 2023

 Ernest Health announced today that Rehabilitation Hospital of Southern California is the new name of the medical rehabilitation hospital formerly called Vibra Rehabilitation Hospital of Rancho Mirage.


The 50-bed inpatient rehabilitation facility opened in 2018 and provides specialized rehabilitative care to patients recovering from disabilities caused by injuries, illnesses, or chronic medical conditions. The facility is a joint venture with Eisenhower Health.


“The hospital is owned in part by Ernest Health and remains a joint venture with Eisenhower Health,” explains Jake Socha, President, Ernest Health. “Ernest Health now manages the facility, and we believe the new name more accurately reflects the connection to our organization and to the broader community the hospital serves.”


Patients often travel to receive the specialized care provided at the hospital, coming from places like San Diego, Los Angeles, and Las Vegas.


“There are few facilities offering this higher level of rehabilitative care in the larger region,” says Rachelle Spencer, CEO, Rehabilitation Hospital of Southern California. “We’ve had patients come from as far as 300 miles away because we’re conveniently located and offer easy access to many outlying cities.”


While the hospital’s name has changed, Spencer says that the services and level of care provided are still the top priority. “Our commitment to our patients is unwavering,” Spencer says. “Daily, our employees provide expertise, knowledge, technology, and most importantly – their passion – to help patients maximize their recoveries and regain as much physical and cognitive independence as possible so they can return home quickly.”


“Rehabilitation Hospital of Southern California continues to positively impact the community because the staff does what they do best: provide the highest quality of rehabilitative care available,” says Marty Massiello, CEO, Eisenhower Health. “Patient-centered rehabilitative care benefits everyone involved, especially the patients, families, and community.”


Rehabilitation Hospital of Southern California employs 145 individuals and treats nearly 900 patients annually. Services are physician-led and include physical, occupational, and speech therapy; rehabilitative nursing; respiratory therapy; dietary services; case management; pharmacy services; social work services; pain management; and more. The hospital is located at 70077 Ramon Road in Rancho Mirage, Calif.
