McLaren Neurologic Rehabilitation Institute

A Lifetime of Difference

The McLaren Neurologic Rehabilitation Institute provides comprehensive, specialized outpatient services to help people overcome disabilities associated with neurological conditions, such as: CVA, Brain Injury, Parkinson's, Spinal Cord Injury and other conditions. Our goal is to improve and support each person's ability to live independently, re-enter the work force, or return to school. Though a brain injury may occur suddenly, recovery is often a gradual process - a period of time when McLaren's caring professional team can make a lifetime of difference for someone you love. 

Our Staff are Certified Through the Brain Injury Association of America

McLaren Neurologic Rehabilitation Institute staff are nationally Certified Brain Injury Specialists (CBIS) through the Academy of Certified Brain Injury Specialists (ACBIS). The certification is achieved through the combination of work experience, training and passing a written exam. The certification was established for direct care staff and professionals who want a strong foundation in the best practices in brain injury rehabilitation.
