Welcome to the Rehabilitation Center
A Leader in Rebuilding Lives
The Rehabilitation Center is a 76-bed specialty hospital located within Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. It offers not only a full range of rehabilitation services and programs, but also the comprehensive resources of a major medical facility, including a Level I Trauma Center. The Rehabilitation Center began providing physical rehabilitation services in 1971 and helped pioneer a number of procedures and protocols - including the multidisciplinary team approach to care - that are now used worldwide.
Scope of Services
For more than four decades, the Rehabilitation Center has treated over 10,000 patients with spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries, as well as strokes and other neurological conditions resulting in disability. The Rehabilitation Center also has highly personalized programs to meet the special needs of women, adolescents, children and individuals with a dual diagnosis of spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury.
Accreditation
SCVMC's Rehabilitation Center is nationally accredited by the Joint Commission, and is also accredited in the areas of inpatient and outpatient spinal cord injury, brain injury and stroke by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
Model System of Care
Because of its long history of innovation, its ongoing research capabilities and its commitment to patient- and family-centered care, the Rehabilitation Center at SCVMC has been designated as a national leader in traumatic brain injury care and research under the Model Systems of Care by the federal government's National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research.

The Rehabilitation Center is one of only 14 in the nation to earn this designation which facilitates collaborative research with other leading centers and provides access to an extensive national data base.
Exceptionally Trained Medical Staff
Along with state-of-the-art technology and treatment capabilities, the Rehabilitation Center has one of the largest, most highly trained and experienced care teams in the region. The teams are led by board-certified physiatrists - physicians who specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation - and include rehabilitation nurses, physical and occupational therapists, psychologists, speech language pathologists, recreation therapists, case managers, social workers and other specialists as needed.

In all cases, the multidisciplinary team works closely with patients and families after a catastrophic injury or illness to help people return to their communities and pursue their lives at the highest level possible. And while the clinical skills our teams provide are essential to the rehabilitation process, so are the optimism, the compassion and the hope they bring to each patient.
