Patient Satisfaction

Shepherd Center, one of the leading rehabilitation hospitals in the nation, strives to be the provider of choice for people with spinal cord injury or disease, acquired brain injury, stroke, multiple sclerosis, spine and chronic pain, and other neurological conditions.

Shepherd Center's mission is to help people who have experienced a catastrophic injury or disease, which has resulted in a temporary or permanent disability, rebuild their lives with hope, dignity and independence, advocating for their full inclusion in all aspects of community life. Patient satisfaction surveys are one means for measuring how effective we are at achieving that mission.

Because Shepherd Center is a not-for-profit organization and an asset to communities across the country, we are proud to publicly post our patient satisfaction scores. We are also committed to continuously striving to perform better. The scores below are based on patient survey responses in 2021.
