Madonna’s team of highly specialized physiatrists, therapists, rehabilitation nurses and clinicians work with the most advanced technology and equipment to help each person achieve the highest level of independence. Rehabilitation means “renewal.” At Madonna, this means healing the whole person in mind, body and spirit. It is compassionate care that extends to the patient’s family and friends, creating a circle of support that makes recovery a reality.

Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital is accredited by CARF, the Rehabilitation Accreditation Commission, as a Spinal Cord System of Care — hospital-level and comprehensive-outpatient — for adults and pediatric family centered care. We offer comprehensive programming for children and adults with all levels of SCI on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. As one of only four hospitals in the United States to be CARF accredited as both a Spinal Cord System of Care and a Pediatric Specialty Program, we are held to higher standards of quality, outcomes and programming.

Madonna’s Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Program serves children 0-18 and adults with all levels of SCI who might have complete or incomplete neurological impairments. An interdisciplinary team of clinicians address a multitude of functional areas, including activities of daily living (ADL), assistive technology, behavior management, cognition (thinking and reasoning skills), communication, community integration, driving, durable medical equipment, environmental modifications, leisure and recreation, mobility, braces, wheelchair seating systems and vocational rehabilitation.


Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injury can result in paralysis of the muscles used for breathing; paralysis and/or loss of feeling in all or some of the trunk, arms, and legs; weakness; numbness; loss of bowel and bladder control; and numerous secondary conditions including respiratory problems, pressure sores, and sometimes fatal spikes in blood pressure. Approximately 12,000 new spinal cord injuries occur in the U.S. each year. A majority of injuries occur from motor vehicle accidents, falls, work-related accidents, sports injuries, and penetrations such as stab or gunshot wounds.
