In the Community
Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation (BSW Rehab) is proud of its many community collaborations and the support it offers to patients and families through its strong community ties.
One example of BSW Rehab’s engagement with the community is its relationship with the city of Fort Worth. Starting in March 2018, the city asked BSW Rehab to provide athletic training for tactical athletes such as fire department personnel. Athletic trainers at BSW Rehab work with department trainees and veterans to deliver injury prevention programs, provide early symptom intervention, and help promote general health and wellness. The success of this collaboration has led to the addition of two athletic trainers, one for the water department and one for the parks department.
BSW Rehab’s ability to deliver high-quality care in the community is enhanced by its extensive network of providers throughout the entire care continuum. "We have an online injury report link that allows our trainers to log in and see if any of our trainees need follow-up care," says Kendall Goldberg, MLA, ATC, LAT, director of athletic training services. "If they do, we can set up appointments with a physical therapist, or physician, or another care provider. This infrastructure enables us to provide strong outreach."
In addition to the city of Fort Worth, BSW Rehab collaborates with other organizations throughout the community, including the Dallas Stars high school hockey league, FedEx at Alliance Airport, the Lake Highlands Girls Classic League, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, Dallas Cowboys Rhythm & Blue Dancers, and the annual Dallas marathon.
