Aug 2, 2022
Jacksonville, Fla., August 1, 2022 – Brooks Rehabilitation is honored to announce that they have been named to U.S. News & World Report’s “Best Hospitals for Rehabilitation” list for the second year in a row.
To be nationally ranked in a specialty, a hospital must excel in caring for the sickest, most medically complex patients recovering from events such as stroke, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injuries. Out of the total number, 3,716 rehabilitation hospitals did not treat a significant volume of complex cases in this specialty. The remaining 799 hospitals were evaluated and the top 50 ranked.
Brooks is the only nationally ranked rehabilitation hospital in Northeast Florida, and one of only three in all of Florida to rank in the top 50. Brooks was selected for their excellence in patient services and expertise in treating patients after a stroke, traumatic brain injury and traumatic spinal cord injury. Brooks is also well-known for its innovative technology, including Cyberdyne’s HAL, the world’s first advanced robotic treatment device shown to improve a patient’s ability to walk.
Trevor Paris, MD, Brooks Rehabilitation’s System Chief Medical Officer, said, “Brooks’ system of comprehensive rehabilitative care provides patients an array of services to meet their unique needs making us a destination for patients from across the U.S. and the world. With more than 50 years of experience, the most highly trained clinicians and one of a kind technology, we’re able to provide the highest level of care and recovery for those with the most complex injuries and illnesses. It is an honor to be recognized by US News & World Report for the excellence in care we strive to provide to all of our patients.”
