A physician discusses matters related to a brain injury with a patient.


Being an inpatient is just the beginning of a rehabilitation journey that continues even after patients are discharged. The length of time patients stay with us depends on the type of treatment they need. Within the first few days of their stay we work with them to plan their discharge, ensuring any community services they may need are in place when they return home.

For those seeking inpatient care, we have a fully staffed, 10-bed unit that is specifically designed for individuals with an acquired brain injury, who require an intensive and comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation program. This inpatient program is one component of the rehabilitation continuum offered by Parkwood Institute to persons with an acquired brain injury.

  • Care Matters Here.

    We focus on the best care possible so people can live life to the fullest.

    Dr. John Denstedt
