What are community hospitals/rehab units?

We have seven community hospitals/rehab units across Worcestershire. They provide a range of inpatient and outpatient services and support people to recovery from surgery or illness when they don't require acute care but neither can they be treated at home. They are a key part of our local healthcare system.
