Stroke & Brain Injury

Stroke 

A stroke is when blood flow to part of the brain stops. CMC is a long-standing partner with the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association, we're committed to providing the very best in diagnosis and treatment. We are also certified by The Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center.  

Brain Injury

Brain injury/traumatic brain injury (TBI), also known as intracranial injury, occurs when an external force traumatically injures the brain. Rehabilitation is a critical part of recovery for brain injury survivors. CMC's experienced and compassionate neuro-rehabilitation team can help you reach your highest level of independence and fully participate in life again; working closely with you and your loved ones to develop a personalized program.

From inpatient care to outpatient care, CMC's programs are uniquely designed for each patient to achieve the highest possible quality of life and independence.
