Presence Life Connections

The right choice for after hospital rehabilitation

Presence Cor Mariae Center Exterior

The team at Presence Cor Mariae Center understands that after a planned hip or knee surgery, unexpected illness or injury, you or a family member may need additional personal therapy outside the hospital. The experts at Presence Cor Mariae Center designed a special short-stay rehabilitation program to help you, or your loved one, reach your recovery goals.

Joint replacement recovery program

Our compassionate, understanding team developed a special joint replacement recovery program that allows each patient and their dedicated team to create personalized treatment plans for each person, based on the patient's goals.  We begin by listening. Then, together, we create a personal plan to recovery that may include therapy, nursing care or more if needed. And, we've added on all the extras, including private rooms, attentive staff and so much more.  Our full team is here to support you, encourage you and help you. Tour today.

Ideally located in a tranquil neighborhood setting close to major Rockford roads, Presence Cor Mariae Center offers a variety of lifestyle options. In addition to short-stay rehabilitation, we provide supportive living for independent older adults, sheltered care, and skilled nursing care.

We want you to enjoy life while you’re here recovering. We offer comfortable rooms and plenty of places to recover in peace. Enjoy three delicious meals a day, cooked from scratch, as well as nutritious snacks. As part of Presence Health, the largest Catholic health system based in Illinois, we also want to make sure your spiritual needs are met. That’s why we offer a full schedule of religious services in our beautiful on-site chapel.
