Spinal Cord Injury Center

SCI Center

The Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Center has provided inpatient and outpatient services to Veterans with SCI, dysfunction or multiple sclerosis since August 1996. The center contains a comprehensive array of facilities and disciplines that SCI patients ordinarily require.
 
The SCI Center is a 65,000 square-foot complex that includes:

  • 30-bed Inpatient Unit
  • Outpatient Clinic
  • Rehabilitation Therapy
  • Transitional Living Apartment
  • Internet Cafe
  • Recreation Therapy
  • Swimming Pool
  • Gymnasium
  • Pharmacy

The staff includes an interdisciplinary team of rehabilitation experts who work exclusively with Veterans with a spinal cord injury or disorder (SCI/D). For more information information, visit SCI Team.

The SCI/D Center provides life-long comprehensive care. For newly injured patients, early post-injury management including any post-acute surgery is provided. When medically stable, the newly injured receive an aggressive rehabilitation program aimed at maximizing the patient’s physical and psychological independence. This program is fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).
 
Beyond the initial rehabilitation phase, the SCI Team provides medical and rehabilitation follow-up care, including primary care and specialty care, in areas where SCI patients are prone to experience unique problems. Services are also coordinated with SCI support clinics in BonhamFort Worth and Temple to provide easier access to care in the Veteran’s community. Telemedicine, primary care, home care and rehabilitation are offered through SCI outpatient services.
 
The SCI/D Center is dedicated to providing lifelong sustaining care to Veterans. In 2015, construction on a new 30-bed SCI Long-term Care Center began.
 
Paralyzed Veterans of America, especially the Dallas Lone Star Chapter, is actively involved in the Center.
