New Rehabilitation Institute in Detroit is a Novelty for Michigan

Innovative Neuroscience Inpatient Unit is First in Michigan

On January 25, The Detroit Medical Center's Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan will put intensive medical treatment for people suffering from brain injuries, strokes, and other neurological disorders within reach when it opens the doors of its newest addition: the Neuroscience Inpatient Unit.

Designed to provide a comprehensive approach to diagnosing, evaluating, and treating victims of neurological disorders, the Neuroscience Inpatient Unit - a 26-bed facility of private and semi-private rooms - has its own staff of doctors and nurses, as well as the accessibility of Detroit Medical Center (DMC) specialists, including speech and occupational therapists, social workers, neurosurgeons, and more.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony and opening celebration is planned for Tuesday, January 25, from 4-6 pm. The Neuroscience Inpatient Center is located within the DMC's Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan at 261 Mack Avenue.
