Integrated Rehab Consultants (IRC) is the nation’s largest group of physiatrists (Physical Medical & Rehab Specialists) within a skilled setting.

Founded in 2009, IRC was one of the first groups to partner with skilled nursing facilities (SNFs). IRC is now the largest group of Physiatrists within a skilled setting nationwide.

IRC continues to grow and meet the needs of the changing post-acute industry by providing a clinical-based solution to address issues that most affect skilled nursing facilities: re-admission rates, patient outcomes, patient satisfaction and staff training.

By partnering our dedicated Physiatrists with SNFs, IRC is able to utilize a team-based approach to help manage rehab programs. This enhanced level of care for rehab patients in a sub-acute setting can rival programs found in inpatient rehab facilities (IRFs).

To help SNFs differentiate themselves from the competition, IRC Physiatrists focus on better patient outcomes and provide a highly personalized level of care. This gives facilities the strong competitive advantage needed to attract patients and build lasting relationships with referral sources.

IRC can also collaborate with SNFs to help develop effective marketing programs geared toward a consistent referral pattern, as well as staff training and education geared toward improving clinical outcomes and staying up-to-date on industry changes, such as Patient Driven Payment Models (PDPM).

IRC partners with SNFs that provide a specialized rehab experience for their patients and families that goes beyond the traditional status quo of nursing facilities.


Integrated Rehab Consultants (IRC) is the largest physician-owned physiatry group in the country. Physiatry, also known as Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R), is a branch of medicine that aims to enhance and restore functional ability (bone, brain, neuromuscular experts) and quality of life. Our physiatrists work with skilled nursing facilities (SNFs) to optimize therapy treatment plans; focusing on managing pain, functional rehabilitation and recovery for patients with physical and cognitive impairments or disabilities, we can help patients discharge quicker and safer – adding a layer of clinical oversight and capabilities that most SNFs and their patients have been underserved historically.
