U.S. News and World Report names Craig #7 rehab hospital in America

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Aug. 8, 2017 – U.S. News & World Report announced today that Craig Hospital has been ranked a top 10 rehabilitation hospital in the U.S. for the 28th consecutive year. Craig has ranked in the top 10 every year since the rankings began in 1990.

The annual rankings are gathered through a survey of rehabilitation physicians from across the country, and Craig was chosen #7 in the U.S. for rehabilitation.

“We’re honored to be recognized by the physician community for the care we provide to people who have sustained a spinal cord and/or a brain injury,” said Mike Fordyce, president and CEO of Craig. “We’re equally proud of the exceptional clinical outcomes and research, as well as our individualized team approach to rehabilitative care, which empowers our patients and families throughout their journey and once they leave Craig.”

Founded in 1956, Craig Hospital is located in Englewood, Colo., and each year treats 2,000 people who have sustained a spinal cord injury and/or traumatic brain injury. In 2016, the hospital completed a $90 million, three-year construction and expansion project that added 85,000 square feet of new space and renovated 135,000 square feet of existing space.
