The original hospital was located in the Stone Manor, which was once the mansion-home of Hosiery Magnate Isaac Eberly. In 1960, Isaac’s widow Katherine sold the mansion and grounds to the Seventh-day Adventists, an organization which converted the mansion house into a 57-bed acute rehabilitation hospital. In December of 1960, the first patient was admitted to the Reading Rehabilitation Hospital.
For over 50 years, the Reading Rehabilitation Hospital has been serving patients from Berks, Chester, Montgomery, Lehigh, Lancaster counties and beyond.
In 1974, a new, four-story hospital was built on the hillside above the mansion. In 1998 HealthSouth acquired Reading Rehabilitation Hospital.

Goals are patient driven and specific, and each member of the interdisciplinary team will have a role in working with you to set appropriate and meaningful goals for your recovery.
