"The Presence Merkle-Knipprath Countryside team took me a physical wreck to a person who can live at home again. When I first came to Merkle, I could not do anything
on my own-walk, talk or write. The therapy team made it their personal goal to make sure I could return home safe. I’m so thankful to all for what they did for me."
– Richard Crawford, short-term rehabilitation patient
After hip or knee surgery, illness or injury, you or a family member may need additional personal therapy outside the hospital, Presence Merkle-Knipprath Countryside's caring team of therapists, nurses and more can help you achieve your recovery goals.
Ideally located in a tranquil and rural setting close to highways in Clifton, we’re easy to access.
We want you to enjoy life while you’re here recovering. During your stay, you’ll enjoy three delicious meals a day, cooked from scratch, and nutritious snacks, too. As a faith-based, mission-drive center, we offer a full schedule of religious services in our beautiful on-site chapel, to make sure your spiritual needs are met as well.
