ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Aug. 13, 2018 – U.S. News & World Report announced today that Craig Hospital has been ranked a top 10 rehabilitation hospital in the U.S. for the 29th 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 designated #8 in the U.S. for rehabilitation.
“Being recognized by the physician community for the care we provide to people who have sustained a spinal cord and/or brain injury is a true honor. We’re equally proud of our exceptional clinical research and outcomes, as well as our individualized team approach to rehabilitative care,” said Mike Fordyce, president and CEO of Craig. “This ranking really recognizes the work that our dedicated staff puts into empowering our patients and families throughout their journey to achieve their highest level of independence and life quality.” 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 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.
