Travel to Pate

Why come to Texas for your brain injury or stroke rehabilitation?

People often travel to receive care at specialized brain injury hospitals like the renowned Craig Hospital in Denver. The reasons are expertise, quality of care and excellent outcomes. That experience counts.

The same applies for those who want to pursue further treatment after the hospital. Seeking the best care with a specialized brain injury rehabilitation program can offer profound benefits. It maximizes the gains made at the hospital by continuing intensive therapy at the time it is most likely to provide gains (the first year).
