Benefits of a Specialty Hospital

Patients at specialty hospitals have access to extraordinary expertise, resources and therapy programs that aren't often available at general rehabilitation centers. Specialty hospitals often have years of experience treating individuals with spinal cord injuries (SCI) and traumatic brain injuries (TBI). These dedicated facilities have patient and family support programs designed for SCI and TBI patients and the staff at specialty hospitals know how to help families navigate complex SCI/TBI care at an emotionally challenging time.

Specialty Hospitals Offer Better Outcomes

Choosing a rehabilitation program that specializes in SCI or TBI therapies means:

  • Improved functional independence
  • Reduced medical complications
  • Relevant education and resources
  • Improved productivity
  • Lower long-term costs
  • Better preparation and support for a successful future

Because specialty hospitals put together a custom team of physicians, therapists and caregivers, every patient’s plan is designed with unprecedented expertise.
