Dear Nursing Colleague,

It is my pleasure to introduce you to Patient Care Services at DMC Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan.

As Michigan's largest, freestanding, academic rehabilitation hospital, our 97 bed inpatient facility offers the region's most comprehensive approach to treating neurologic, orthopedic and medically complex patients. RIM is CARF accredited and JCAHO certified. RIM earned the distinction of being designated as a Magnet Facility by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) in May 2013. RIM is the only rehabilitation hospital in Michigan and only the fourth in the country to receive the Magnet® designation. Magnet® status is bestowed only to hospitals that exceed professional standards in nursing practice, leadership, education and research, and are able to document them. Research shows there are clear benefits to hospitals that achieve Magnet® status and to the communities they serve including consumer confidence, recruitment and retention, and maintaining positive patient outcomes.

Our specialty programs in Neuroscience, Spinal Cord Injury and Stroke are housed on renovated units and our inpatient services also include a diverse PM&R unit serving a broad range of disabilities. Our hospital utilizes an entirely integrated electronic medical record.

RIM Nursing offers a strong emphasis on a collaborative and multidisciplinary approach to patient care and rehabilitation that differentiates us from the acute care setting. Every patient at RIM has a unique story to tell about their journey to reach their goal of living without limitations. Our mission statement guides our care each day. "The Patient Is Our Purpose".

To learn more about nursing opportunities at RIM, or to schedule a shadow day, personal tour or interview, call at (313) 578-3985

I look forward to meeting you and sharing with you the difference rehabilitation nursing makes at DMC Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan.
