Main Line Health requires visitors to obtain a temporary visitor's badge from our Greeter Service Ambassadors located at the main entrance of our hospitals.

This is an overview of our most important hospital policies for patients and visitors. Complying with these rules keeps Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital a safe, healthy, and comfortable place for all of our patients and their loved ones.
For more information on your stay at this and any of our other hospitals, please read through the patient hospital guide. A copy will also be provided to you upon admission.
Patients are permitted to have visitors from 12 - 8 p.m., Monday through Sunday. Children must be accompanied by an adult, and visiting after 4 p.m. is strongly recommended for their safety. Visitors will continue to sign in at the front entrance.
Your family and visitors are welcome and are important to the recovery process. We have updated our visitation policy, effective October 19, 2022. For our patients’ successful rehabilitation, as well as their safety and well-being, their clinical team may need to limit the number of visitors and the time of their visits so as not to interfere with treatment schedule or resting periods.
We also ask visitors to please treat our patients, their families and our staff in a considerate, courteous and cooperative manner, respecting the culture, values and beliefs of all who receive and deliver care. This includes dressing appropriately. Shirts and shoes must be worn at all times.
Here are some additional guidelines for visitors to ensure the comfort and safety of all patients.
Visitors please do NOT:
- Consume alcohol anywhere in the hospital or on the hospital grounds.
- Attempt to assist your loved one unless you have been properly trained to assist in the activity.
- Remove any protective devices from patients.
- Give over-the-counter or prescription medications to patients.
- Leave patients unattended in the bathroom.
- Bring sharp objects, such as scissors, razors or nail clippers, into the hospital.
Visitors please DO:
- Maintain a quiet environment so that all patients’ needs are respected. Be especially considerate of patients in semi-private rooms.
- Ask our nursing staff before bringing any food or drinks into the hospital.
- Let our staff know when you’re escorting a patient from the unit.
- Please also protect your personal property and valuables while you are visiting.
A smoke-free hospital
Bryn Mawr Rehab is a smoke-free facility. While people have the right to smoke in their own homes, all patients at Bryn Mawr Rehab have the right to avoid potentially harmful second-hand smoke while they’re recovering, so there is no smoking in the hospital or on the hospital grounds. This is in line with our basic mission of helping people regain and maintain optimum health.
Please do not use the bathrooms in patient rooms. They are reserved for patients to protect their health. Public restrooms are located throughout the hospital.
Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital makes accommodations for the parents and guardians of adolescent patients to stay with their child during the inpatient rehabilitation stay. For more information, contact your care manager.
Independent Living Unit (ILU)
Our four-room, home-like ILU is arranged like an apartment so you can become acclimated to living at home. With the recommendation of your patient care team, you and your family may stay overnight in the ILU to help develop and re-establish a routine. Your occupational therapist can provide you more information about the ILU.
Statement of accreditation and mission
Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Hospital is licensed by the Department of Health of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and accredited by the Joint Commission.
Main Line Health’s mission is to provide a comprehensive range of safe, high-quality health services, complemented by related educational and research activities that meet health care needs and improve the quality of life in the communities we serve.
Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital is dedicated to serving individuals and their families whose lives can be enhanced through physical or cognitive rehabilitation. We continually strive for excellence by providing care and services valued by those we serve and by contributing to the community through education, research and prevention of disability.
Before patients arrive at Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital, we want to be sure they know what to expect. We provided some tips to make sure the transition from an acute care hospital to our rehabilitation hospital goes smoothly.
At Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital, we’re just as passionate about supporting the broader community and preventing debilitating injuries as we are about helping our patients recover. Within the hospital walls, we host support groups and events to help patients and their families work through the challenges of recovery and celebrate the small victories achieved throughout their journey.
As each patient works to heal emotionally, mentally and physically, we provide the support they need off campus as well. Our active outreach includes preventive education, wellness programs and scholarships. We also work with the larger community to help people in need who are physically or cognitively challenged.
Our award-winning community programs include:
- Art Ability – showcasing and celebrating artists with disabilities
- Project SEARCH – opening the door to employment for disabled adults
Working in the community: Our approach
We advocate for issues affecting our patients and community on the local, state and national level, and create fun and informative community events to spread understanding of various conditions and promote a healthful life. Through membership and active participation, we also support the work of a broad range of local, state, and national groups. Bryn Mawr Rehab supports organizations including:
- The Brain Injury Association of Pennsylvania (BIAPA)
- Rehabilitation and Community Providers Association (RCPA)
- The Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF)
- The Delaware Valley Stroke Council (DVSC)
- The Hospital & Health system Association of Pennsylvania (HAP)
- Delaware Valley Healthcare Council of HAP
- The ALS Association
- The Multiple Sclerosis Society
- The American Medical Rehabilitation Providers Association (AMRPA)
More ways to get involved
To aid patients who can no longer afford to continue their care with us, we have grants for qualified applicants that help them continue their therapy, follow-up care, and get needed prosthetic or assistive devices. This fund is supported through the generosity of community donors, Delaware Valley businesses, foundations, and our extended hospital family.
Bryn Mawr Rehab also offers a wide range of volunteer opportunities, as well as a shadowing program in a variety of disciplines.
Because the Bryn Mawr Rehab community is so strong, people often continue to participate in events and programming even after they’re healed or have achieved independence. Our staff, patients, organizational partners, and volunteers make up a network of thousands, all contributing to a better quality of life for everyone, both on and off the Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital campus.
