The government has taken number of reforms to improve health care system. As a consequence health care services improved significantly in recent decades. There is still greater requirement for rehabilitation services due to reasons such as growing population, change in life style leading to greater incidence of diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular diseases, increased road traffic accidents leading to head injury, stroke, spinal cord injury etc. This paper focuses on the current structure and future challenges of tertiary care in the capital city of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh.
