The Rehabilitation Center at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center has built a reputation as a national leader in care for patients who’ve suffered a stroke, a spinal cord damage or a traumatic brain injury.
Based in innovation-driven Silicon Valley, the center pioneered an interdisciplinary team approach to care that has since become the standard. The care team comprises people with a diverse range of skill sets, all focused on doing whatever it takes to bring about the best possible outcome for patients. “Here at the Rehabilitation Center, it’s all we think about,” says Dr.James Crew, chairman of the center’s physical medicine and rehabilitation department.
And while the center conducts groundbreaking research and develops new technologies, therapies and protocols, it’s the highly individualized focus on each patient that makes the center stand apart.
“Getting our patients back to living life again requires more than just overcoming the physical challenges,” says Dr. Henry Huie, chief of brain injury rehabilitation. “Along with physical, occupational, speech and recreational therapy, our patients help each other.”
