Craig Earns Top Ten Rating for 30th Straight Year

U.S. News & World Report names Craig #8 rehabilitation hospital in America

ENGLEWOOD, Colo., August 1, 2019 – U.S. News & World Report has announced that Craig Hospital was ranked a top ten rehabilitation hospital in the U.S. for the 30th 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.

“We’re honored that the nation’s physician community continues to recognize Craig for the outstanding care we provide every day to people who have sustained a spinal cord or brain injury,” said Jandel Allen-Davis, MD, president and CEO of Craig. “This recognition is a reflection of our team’s intentional and distinctive focus on our patients and their families as well as our focus on research and patient outcomes.”

Craig Hospital’s individualized, comprehensive, and family-oriented approach to rehabilitation creates a caring culture of hope and possibilities. Craig offers highly specialized and experienced staff, state-of-the-art rehabilitation facilities and equipment, proven treatment methods, a large group of patients with similar injuries, and a positive and caring attitude that permeates the hospital. The hospital’s functional patient outcomes continue to surpass nearly every national average. On average, Craig graduates make greater functional gains during their initial treatment, are discharged home at higher rates, return to work or school in greater numbers, are more functionally independent and require less attendant care, have fewer re-hospitalizations, have higher levels of community re-integration and satisfaction with life, and have higher earning power than their national peer group treated in other rehabilitation programs.

Founded in 1956, Craig Hospital is located in Englewood, Colo., and each year treats 2,500 people who have sustained a spinal cord injury and/or brain injury.
