Stroke Rehabilitation Experience 

With Baylor Rehab’s stroke rehabilitation program, you will have a dedicated stroke team led by board-certified physiatrists on our medical staff sub-specializing in stroke. Other team members may include nurses, licensed physical and occupational therapists, speech and recreational therapists, social workers, neuropsychologists, rehab psychologists and care coordinators – all specially trained to treat stroke patients and address complex medical issues.  

Continuing education is a priority to us in our thirst to continually increase our knowledge base about stroke treatment. Our specialists routinely attend national educational conferences and frequently publish and present new insights on their specialty. 

Our staff is committed to quality as 33% of our nurses are CRRN certified. Many of our neuro therapists have also achieved additional certification and training, such as Neurologic Certified Specialists, Neuro-Integrative Functional Rehabilitation and Habilitation and Neuro Developmental Treatment. 

  • Last year alone, we treated 314 survivors of stroke. 
  • Our Functional Independence Measure (FIM) measures our patients’ progress compared to regional and national averages. 
  • Baylor Rehab stroke patients progress 26.66% higher than the national average of 21.21%.
  • Baylor Rehab stroke patient discharges to home are 73% compared to 66% nationally.
