We see patients from age 12 months and up; we will consider admission for children under the age of 12 months on a case-by-case basis.
To be eligible for our program, the patient must:
Our rehabilitation physicians will evaluate the patient at a local hospital, or review medical charts with the referral source to determine appropriateness for admission.
We accept patients with a spinal cord injury, complete or incomplete at the level of C-5 or lower; we will evaluate patients with injuries above C-5 on a case-by-case basis.
Once a patient is approved for admission into our program, our team will guide you through the process including medical insurance and disability claims, and will be available to help complete paperwork and answer questions.
When patients are ready to go home, they can be confident that they will have our continued support in the days and months ahead.
Our case manager works with patients, families and their rehabilitation team throughout the stay to help coordinate rehabilitative needs, including:
If patients need to be discharged to an alternative level of care, such as a skilled nursing facility, our case manager assists with that process as well.
Our physicians, neuropsychologists, and therapists also continue to help interface with school or work for as long as needed following the patient's return home.
