Multi-Specialty Clinic: Secondary Conditions Treatment Services

What is the Multi-Specialty Healthcare Clinic?

Our Multi-Specialty Clinic is an outpatient program that provides care and treatment for the secondary conditions of patients who have experienced a catastrophic injury.

Secondary conditions are negative health outcomes that occur as a direct result of a disability. The most common secondary conditions are pressure sores, respiratory complications, urinary tract infections, spasticity and scoliosis. These conditions are a major health issue for people living with spinal cord and brain injuries and should be treated at a specialized outpatient clinic.
