The impact of Sheltering Arms Foundation is demonstrated through the impact of Sheltering Arms Physical Rehabilitation Centers and programs.
Where We Started
Founded in 1889 by Rebekah Peterkin and members of her sewing circle, Sheltering Arms Hospital served as an acute care hospital for the poor of Richmond and greater Central Virginia until 1981. During that time no bills were ever sent, patients gave what they could, physicians donated their time, and the community supported the hospital and its patients through volunteerism and philanthropy. In 1981, after extensive study of community needs, Sheltering Arms reopened its doors as the first private, freestanding physical rehabilitation hospital in Virginia. For the past 35 years we have served the needs of those experiencing physical disabilities while maintaining our 126-year old commitment to compassion, respect, and financial assistance to those in need.
Where We Are
Sheltering Arms Rehabilitation Centers is a leading provider of physical rehabilitation offering the most comprehensive support system in the great Richmond area. We specialize in treating severe and complex neurological and orthopedic conditions, and we provide therapy services to some of the largest acute care hospitals in the area on a contractual basis. We operate 2 inpatient hospitals, 10 outpatient clinics, many specialized services including neuro rehabilitation, orthopedic physical therapy, and our Partner for Life programs. Our vision is to shape the future of rehabilitative care to improve quality of life in the communities we serve.
Where We Are Going
Our goal is to become a top 5 rehabilitation hospital in the country. Sheltering Arms Foundation will continue to support the mission of the hospital system and its goals by financially supporting clinical-based research, the most advanced technology and equipment for patient rehab, advanced training and certification for our staff, community benefit programs such as Partner for Life and Club Rec, and financial assistance for patients in need.
