|Subject:||Resolution Recognizing the 57th Anniversary of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia|
|In the near future, I plan on introducing a resolution recognizing Magee Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia upon their 57th anniversary of serving the citizens of Pennsylvania.
First opened in March 1958, Magee Rehabilitation Hospital is the oldest facility of its kind in Philadelphia. Magee Rehabilitation Hospital is a 96-bed, non-profit hospital providing state-of-the-art care to individuals, many of whom are economically disadvantaged. Magee employs 629 staff members and annually provides advanced medical and rehabilitation services to 4,500 patients, such as those recovering from spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, strokes, amputation, severe orthopedic injuries and neurological disorders.
Magee Rehabilitation Hospital was the first facility in the nation to be accredited in brain injury rehabilitation and is consistently recognized as one of the Best Hospitals in the U.S. by U.S. News & World Report. They are also accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) and the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). Magee is a founding member of the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation’s NeuroRecovery Network (NRN) and continues to be at the forefront of treatment for individuals with spinal cord injuries.
Please consider joining me in sponsoring the resolution recognizing Magee for its 57 years of dedication, commitment and distinguished service to the health care needs of the citizens of this Commonwealth.
