Traumatic Brain Injury Program

We understand the fear and uncertainty after a traumatic brain injury. We’re here to provide comfort along with the highest level of care for you and your loved ones. 

Your treatment process will involve a team of experts, each with training to address different needs during recovery. Your care team will meet regularly to make sure you’re receiving the best care possible. Because life may change after an injury, we work with family and caregivers to make sure they’re educated and prepared to support your road to recovery when you transition to home. This same comprehensive care is offered after you’ve left the hospital. 

Our outpatient brain injury program is also available for anyone who did not require hospitalization after a head injury, but wants to minimize any long-term effects.
