Spaulding North Shore

Inpatient physical medicine and rehabilitation services are available at North Shore Medical Center through our close collaboration with Spaulding Hospital for Continuing Medical Care North Shore, located on our Salem campus (Spaulding North Shore is the new name of the former Shaughnessey Kaplan Rehabilitation Hospital). If your NSMC physician recommends you begin physical medicine and rehabilitation, you can opt for great continuity of care by choosing Spaulding North Shore for your care.
