Sinai opens rehab center for those with brain injuries

Sinai Hospital of Baltimore announced Wednesday it has opened a 20-bed rehabilitation center to treat patients who have suffered brain injuries, strokes or other neurological disorders.

The $7.7 million Louis and Phyllis Friedman Neurological Rehabilitation Center is located on the fifth floor of the hospital's South Tower.

Features of the center include:

• A dedicated nine-bed brain injury unit with the highest number of certified brain injury specialists in Maryland
• A gym filled with the latest technology including a ZeroG gait and balance training system and the latest generation of training devices for visual perception
• A simulated community called Greater Heights that helps facilitate patients’ integration into their own community following discharge, featuring grocery store and bus stop settings  and an ATM 
• A fully equipped home transition apartment that allows patients to replicate the activities they will be doing at home • Specially designed, private patient rooms that can be adjusted to a person’s particular therapy needs to help control levels of stimulation

The center was built with the help of a $2 million grant from the state of Maryland and a lead gift from Louis and Phyllis Friedman.

Sinai Hospital is a part of LifeBridge Health, which also owns Northwest Hospital, Levindale Hebrew Geriatric Center and Hospital, Courtland Gardens Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, and related subsidiaries and affiliates.
