ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – July 27, 2021 – U.S. News & World Report has announced that Craig Hospital is ranked a top 10 rehabilitation hospital in the U.S. for the 32nd consecutive year. Craig has ranked in the top 10 every year since the rankings began in 1990. This year's annual rankings were gathered by evaluating data on more than 4,750 hospitals nationwide in 15 adult medical specialties and 17 procedures and conditions. According to U.S. News & World Report, to be nationally ranked in a specialty, a hospital must excel in caring for the most medically complex patients, and Craig was designated #10 in the U.S. for rehabilitation.
“We are honored to once again receive this special and important designation from USNWR, which reflects how our peers in neurorehabilitation view the compassionate and expert care we deliver daily to our patients and families,” Jandel Allen-Davis, MD, president and CEO of Craig Hospital, says. “We can never take this recognition for granted, and, based on countless conversations with grateful providers, patients and families, we are certain that our focus on providing the best evidence-based, state-of-the-art neurorehabilitation and cutting-edge research are the features that lead to such strong outcomes and benefits for those we serve.”
Craig Hospital's functional patient outcomes continue to be superior compared to almost every national average. On average, Craig graduates 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, and have higher levels of community re-integration and satisfaction with life.
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.
