Complex Care Rehabilitation Program

Admissions Process

The Neurologic Rehabilitation Institute at Brookhaven Hospital is a fully accredited 28-bed inpatient rehabilitation center dedicated to treating individuals with moderate to severe brain injuries and other neurological disorders. We accept individuals over 18 with no upper age limit.

The length of stay at NRI varies from patient to patient and is largely determined by the extent of the injury and the patient’s ability to engage in rehabilitation. The average length of stay is four to six months, but we can also serve patients who require a longer continuum of care.

We accept various types of federal, state, military and private insurance, but because of the differences in individual coverage, we suggest you contact us to determine your eligibility. In the event that you are not covered by insurance, flexible financing may be arranged.

The road to a life of regained independence starts by calling NRI at (888) 298-HOPE to request a free assessment today. Our RNs and Certified Brain Injury Specialist (CBIS) Evaluators are available to do on-site assessments at home, hospital or current place of treatment.
