Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation
Opens Newly Renovated Day Neuro and Neuro-Rehabilitation Center in Dallas
Specialized outpatient programs offers treatment to individuals with stroke, brain and spinal cord injuries
DALLAS, Texas – Jul. 21, 2021 -- Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation (BSWIR) held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on July 21, 2021, to mark the opening of two specialized outpatient programs: our Day Neuro Program and neuro-rehabilitation outpatient program at its Dallas hospital, located at 909 North Washington Avenue. These two specialized-programs offer innovative treatment to help individuals transition back to their life at home, work and in the community following a stroke, brain injury or other neurologic event.
"Every detail of this new treatment area was meticulously thought out,” said Fabian Polo, president, Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation. "Despite design changes and delays due to the pandemic, our team worked tirelessly to accomplish our goal of providing better care to our patients and I'm so proud of the final result."
The Day Neuro Program provides comprehensive rehabilitation services designed to provide intensive, daily therapy with the goal of returning to work, school and driving. Physical, occupational, speech and recreation therapists, nurses, doctors and other neuro-rehabilitation specialists work as a team to promote functional wellness. Combined with our specialized outpatient neuro-rehabilitation center and an inpatient rehabilitation hospital -- ranked as one of the nation's best by U.S. News & World Report, this new center offers patients an extension of the Neuro continuum of care needed by those with acquired brain and spine injuries. The new center features a large therapy gym, private treatment rooms, advanced equipment and technologies, a training kitchen and a state-of-the-art therapy pool.
“Bringing together these two important programs under one roof, along with our inpatient rehabilitation hospital, reinforces our dedication to the community,” said Katharine Powers, market director, neuro continuum. “Providing a neuro continuum of resources allows patients to have continuity of care during their recovery and that creates a true patient-centered standard focused on quality outcomes.”
Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation is one of only 16 model systems for the treatment and research of traumatic brain injuries, which supports the continuum of neuro-rehabilitation care. The Day Neuro Program is open to patients 15 years or older who have experienced a stroke, brain injury, brain tumor or infection, or spinal cord injury.
