The Neurology Day Rehabilitation Program is a Neurologist led, intensive interdisciplinary outpatient rehabilitation program designed for individuals who have experienced a neurological event including stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, or multiple sclerosis. Our medically based rehab program provides individually tailored comprehensive care to treat the physical, psychological, cognitive, communicative, and vocational consequences of a neurologic injury. In addition to skilled therapy, patients meet regularly with the Neurologist and Nurse Practitioner who focus on coordinating the highest level of medical and rehabilitative care.
