Neuro Rehabilitation

Neuro Rehabilitation (9 North) is a 20-bed unit focusing on patients with traumtic brain injury, and also includes other neurological conditions such as spinal cord injury, cerebral vascular accident, multiple sclerosis, Guillian-Barre, and cerebral palsy. As a team, we deliver high quality care tailored to each patients special needs. Medical, nursing and a combination of speech, occupational and physical therapies are provided using an interdisciplinary approach. 9 North is a team-oriented nursing unit. As 9 North nurses we build therapeutic relationships with the patients and their families via the primary care nursing delivery model. As 9 North nurses we feel very fulfilled and rewarded by being able to see the patients progress and satisfaction throughout their recovery period to their maximum level of function.
