Rehabilitation Center

Brain Injury Program

Brain Injury Program

As the only CARF accredited program in Utah, we provide among the best and most comprehensive therapies for brain trauma patients in the nation. Our goal: To return each patient to a productive lifestyle within their home and community. We take a team approach, utilizing specialists throughout our academic medical center (the only in the Intermountain region). Each patient has a community of medical professionals to guide them to recovery. This team includes: physical & medical rehabilitation physicians, Physical Therapists, nurses, occupational therapists, recreational therapists, speech language pathologists, neuropsychologists/psychologists, and social workers.

The Brain Injury Program strives to minimize the effects of cognitive and physical disabilities through patient centered and functionally oriented treatment. The Rehabilitation Center's goal is to return the individual to a productive lifestyle within their home and community. Individuals with a traumatic and non-traumatic brain injury experience a number of functional limitations that may include difficulty walking, speaking, or eating. These individuals may be more forgetful, may have difficulty understanding directions or be unable to complete assignments at work or school.
