There is life after brain injury. And at Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation, our goal is to help you discover it.
Going back to your old life isn’t a reality. We understand, and we’ll help you and your family wrestle with this in a safe, warm environment. At BIR you will also find a team of specialists dedicated to crafting a treatment plan as individual as you.
We are an important rehabilitation component of the North Texas Traumatic Brain Injury Model System. BIR is one of only 16 facilities nationwide to be designated as a model system of care for patients with traumatic brain injuries by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research. Designed to increase knowledge about the effects of traumatic brain injuries and to improve outcomes and the quality of life for patients and their families, the North Texas Traumatic Brain Injury Model System is a cooperative effort between the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Baylor University Medical Center and BIR to provide advanced research. Patients and their families are given the opportunity to enroll in specific research projects that may improve treatment and outcomes for future TBI survivors.
Our goal is to help you rebuild life skills and maximize your independence. We will help your family get the training and support they need. And together, we will face new opportunities. It’s not about what you’ve been through. It’s where you go from here.

At BIR, you will find strength in numbers. We treat 175 brain injury patients annually through our inpatient rehabilitation program—more than any rehab hospital in North Texas and nearby states.
How does BIR compare with other regional and national brain injury centers? Our patients recover at higher rates. And we are one of 16 centers nationwide designated as a “model system of care.”
Following a traumatic brain injury, most of the brain’s repair and regeneration happens quickly. BIR researchers are studying how to aid this recovery.
The effects of brain injury can collide with every aspect of life. From help re-entering society to family education, you will find the resources you need at BIR.
