In 2017 Sargent Rehabilitation Center celebrated 100 years of providing comprehensive outpatient medical-educational rehabilitation services to disabled children, adults and their families. Currently the Center serves 2,500 clients and is nationally recognized for its expertise in neurological disorders (brain injury, autism, stroke, concussion). Our expertise has recently expanded to include behavioral health and mental health young adult disorders.
We are also specialized in the provision of rehabilitative/education day treatment for adolescent/adult brain injured and a special needs day school covering preschool to post high school ages. We provide what is best described as step-down care. Whether it be a hospital discharge for either children and adults requiring a comprehensive, coordinated transitioning of care from the inpatient setting before turning or re-entering the community or a student who has encountered medical, behavioral, diagnostic complications that significantly disrupt learning, our job is to provide and coordinate comprehensive medical rehabilitation and education intervention in order to achieve outcomes that result in client/student movement to community learning, living and productivity.
To complete the cycle of our mission of restoring human potential, the work of the programs/services of the Pediatric Center and Neurorehabilitation Center is advanced by our Regional Resource Center as it provides leadership in transforming medical rehabilitation and education convenient stakeholders to collaborate on policy and practices in health care and education.
The campus located in Warwick houses three business centers (the Pediatric Center, Neurorehabilitation Center and Regional Resource Center) with a total of 36,000 sq. ft. of service space. In 2018, a total of 2,576 clients/families as well as professionals and community agency leaders collectively received therapeutic services, training and consultation from the three business centers. Of the 160 clients discharged as a result of program/service completion, 93% entered/re-entered the community. 100% of them have sustained recovery one year post-discharge preventing their re-admission to costly and restrictive long term care.
The Champlin Foundation has provided grants for a series of capital improvements to the pediatric and neurorehabilitation buildings and for the construction of the resource center. The grants have positioned Sargent to provide state-of-art space, therapeutic equipment and technology assisted instruction which when combined with professional experience and expertise has resulted in successful client recovery from disability.
