Northwest Hospital’s Easy Street® environment is the only facility of its kind in the state and an integral part of our comprehensive rehabilitation program. Easy Street® is a life-size replica of a city street, including a grocery store, restaurant, bank, laundromat, bus stop, movie theater and a home with a kitchen, dining room, bedroom and car.
Easy Street® provides a unique concept in medical, physical and cognitive rehabilitation by incorporating real-world obstacles, such as curbs, steps, ramps, slopes and turnstiles. This environment helps patients relearn daily living skills and regain their independence and confidence in performing everyday tasks. A physical therapy gym and occupational therapy center are also conveniently located on Easy Street.
