Traumatic Brain Injury Long-Term Care Facilities

Every year, more than three million adults and children sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) — a major cause of death for both adults and children in the United States. As a long-term care facility for brain injury patients, HealthBridge serves TBI rehab patients ready to leave the hospital as well as those no longer able to have their needs met at home.

Many of our patients also reduce the length of their hospital stays because our community-based facilities offer advanced catastrophic injury care capabilities, including halo care, ventilation and trach care, feeding tubes and VAC care for wounds that are still in need of healing.

HealthBridge gives all our patients the opportunity to recover and advance in their independence in a family-friendly setting, while receiving active, personalized therapy and benefitting from a high staff-to-patient ratio.
