Emerald Foundation Contributes to Barrow Rehab Program
(April 2013) - The Emerald Foundation granted $250,000 for an expansion of the Center for Transitional NeuroRehabilitation (CTN) at Barrow Neurological Institute.
The mission of CTN is to assist people with brain injuries in rebuilding their lives through an intensive, six- to 12-week therapeutic program. Patients spend several hours a day, four to five days a week in the program. Care is provided by a multi-disciplinary staff, including neuropsychologists, a dietitian, psychiatrist, speech-language pathologists, and physical, occupational and recreational therapists. CTN facilitates patients’ return to home, school and work. The center needs twice as much space to adequately serve its current patients and to treat patients now on a four-month waiting list for the program.
In 2010, the Emerald Foundation made a $250,000 gift for construction of the Ashlyn Dyer Aquatic Center, which opened at Barrow Neurological Institute in 2012.
