With a specialty focus on brain and spinal cord injury rehabilitation and research, we have more expertise and experience with brain injuries than most rehabilitation centers in the United States. 

Better Outcomes For Brain Injury

Our focus and expertise helps us to provide better care, resulting in better outcomes and higher return-to-home rates than the national average. Our care is not only effective, it blends comfort and compassion, which results in high patient satisfaction. In fact, 97 percent of our patients and their families report that they are likely to recommend Shepherd Center to others in need of rehabilitation care.

Shepherd Center has proven results in helping patients achieve more functional independence and return to their communities. One measure is FIM change, a measure of how much functional gain the patient received during rehabilitation. It is measured just after admission to Shepherd Center and again at discharge. Another measure is the rate of discharge to the community after a patient complete rehabilitation.
