Brain Injury Rehabilitation
Recovering from a brain injury is long, hard work. Building and maintaining strengths for independence is crucial. That's why Magee Rehabilitation enrolls its brain injured patients into a lifetime continuum of care that is a constant source of support and service. This approach ensures that Magee provides the most comprehensive and cost-effective rehabilitation available. It is an approach built on decades of experience improving the functional outcomes of persons with brain injury.
At Magee, clinicians from a variety of disciplines agree that the best rehabilitation occurs in the real world. So the brain injury team aims toward getting patients back to home, work, school and community settings safely, quickly and effectively. Each case is managed from initial enrollment through follow-up, always focusing on the patient's tailored functional goals.
