Group Heroes:
Centre for Neuro Skills

Various locations in California and Texas
“We at Centre for Neuro Skills are all so proud and honored to be recognized with the Group Heroes Award by the American Stroke Association. We are dedicated to helping our stroke patients receive the best possible rehabilitation therapy and educating our communities that heart health is brain health.” – David Harrington, MBA, OTR/L, CBIST (President / Chief Executive Officer)

The Centre for Neuro Skills has been a leader in the stroke and brain injury rehabilitation field for more than 40 years. Its facilities provide outcome-based treatment to patients in seven locations across Texas and California.

Each patient at the Centre for Neuro Skills receives a personalized treatment plan that focuses on therapeutic rehabilitation and disease management services. Patients work with specially trained staff to relearn life skills after a stroke or traumatic brain injury. Their strides help them regain their independence and improve their quality of life.

The Centre for Neuro Skills has partnered with the American Heart Association on several occasions to help bring awareness to local communities about stroke. Members of the Centre for Neuro Skills’ executive leadership team have been involved with American Heart Association Heart & Stroke Walk events in Austin, Texas, and Bakersfield, California, in recent years.

Physicians and rehabilitation therapists at the Centre for Neuro Skills often work with local and national media to educate the public about stroke on national recognition days, like World Stroke Day, or during Stroke Awareness Month. The clinic’s providers also talk about the importance of stroke rehabilitation, risk factors that affect stroke survivors and the prevalence of stroke among underrepresented groups. They also discuss tips for stroke prevention and causes, and the importance of post-acute care for stroke patients.

Patients who have been treated at the Centre for Neuro Skills sometimes share their stories with the news media. They also visit the clinic locations where they received rehab treatment to discuss their experiences with current patients. They’re always eager to talk about the ways rehabilitation therapy has helped improve their lives, inspiring patients and staff alike.
