What does a Rehab Manager do?

Rehab managers serve in high-level administrative roles, typically overseeing the day-to-day operations of a facility that provides care for physical, mental health, or addiction rehabilitation or recovery. They are responsible for all aspects of routine functions, including hiring, training, and supervising staff. They ensure the staff and facility are in compliance with all applicable regulations and guidelines. Their primary objective is to provide a safe, healthy, and supportive environment for patients or clients. They also have administrative and financial duties such as managing budgets and payments.

Rehab managers typically have a bachelor’s degree in a business or healthcare field, although an advanced degree is often preferred. Some roles require specific health-related credentials or licenses. These positions require strong project management capabilities and excellent leadership skills.
