Shepherd Center is very different from a general rehabilitation facility. Our clinicians specialize in spinal cord injury and treat a high volume of patients – about 400 each year. As a result, we have more experience dealing with all levels of spinal cord injuries, including those in people who are ventilator dependent or have a dual diagnosis of spinal cord and brain injury.

Shepherd Center is one of 14 facilities in the United States that is designated as a Spinal Cord Injury Model System by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
