Our state-of-the-art facilities in Syracuse and Auburn allow you to recover from surgery, illness or injury quickly, and with great care in a warm, comfortable environment. It’s not quite home, but we’ll make you as comfortable as possible until you can return to yours.

Getting You Stronger,  Healthier and Home 

Loretto is the only rehabilitation program in the area to offer the most comprehensive services to support even the most challenging rehabilitation needs.
