Why do so many patients and doctors believe in Magee?

U.S. News&World Report consistently ranks us one of the best rehabilitation hospitals in the nation.

Magee is one of 14 federally designated Regional Spinal Cord Injury Centers.

Our programs in spinal cord injury, brain injury, stroke, amputation and our staff are nationally recognized; for instance, our brain injury rehab program was the very first to be accredited by the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

We are a founding member of the Jefferson Health System, and have more than 50 years of experience in providing physical rehabilitation in the Philadelphia area.

Magee is an entirely non-profit organization.

Philadelphia Magazine recently recognized "Top Docs" in the region. Dr Guy Fried, Magee's Medical Director was named for Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, along with Dr Barbara Brown (stroke) and Dr Christopher Formal (spinal cord injury).  Dr Mendel Kupher was recognized as one of Philadelphia's Best Physicians under 40 years old.

At the same time, Philadelphia Magazine also recognized regional "Centers of Excellence." Magee was the only rehab to be featured as a Center of Excellence for Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury and Stroke.
