The purpose of this study is to assess the accessible and inaccessible features of selected rehabilitation facilities affiliated with Cebu Doctors' University in Cebu City under four (4) priorities such as: accessible approach to entrance, access to goods and services, usability of restrooms, and additional access in order to provide recommendations to improve accessibility on inaccessible areas. Particularly, this study utilized a Descriptive Method under Qualitative Method of Research. This study used the assessment tool "Checklist and Recommendations for Universal Accessibility of Malls, Entertainment Centers, Schools, Training Centers and Office Buildings" based on "Checklist for Existing Facilities" to assess the following rehabilitation facilities: (1) Camp Lapu- Lapu Station Hospital - Physical Therapy Section, (2) Cebu Doctors' University Hospital Rehabilitation Center, (3) North General Hospital Rehabilitation Center, (4) San Nicolas Rehabilitation Center (SNRC).
