Youth & Adolescent Spinal Cord Injury Program

For a teen or adolescent a spinal cord injury is a life-altering event that comes at a crucial phase of life. The SCI Adolescent Rehab program is designed to meet the unique physical, emotional and social needs of teens (ages 15 to 22, with younger patients assessed on a case-by-case basis) as they recover from a spinal cord injury. Our rehab team works with each patient to maximize every facet of his or her recovery and independence, while helping to establish important physical and emotional skills. To help support the emotional needs and adjustments that come with a spinal cord injury our psychologists and social workers are available to both patients and their families.

Spinal Cord Injury Adolescent Suites

Gaylord Hospital's Spinal Cord Injury Adolescent Suites provide a bright patient room that is connected via a shared bath with a family room/suite that sleeps two. This allows family members 24 hour access to their son or daughter. There is no cost for the family suite. Having family members close by not only provides emotional support after a spinal cord injury, but also allows the family to learn how to best support and care for their son or daughter for when he or she returns home. The Loft is a media/entertainment space where patients can entertain friends. As of September 2020 the Adolescent Suites and Loft are being renovated and are not currently available. 

Inpatient Adolescent SCI Program

The SCI Adolescent Suites are currently being renovated to better serve our patients and their families. The suites will not be available for the next 18 months. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause families of our SCI adolescent population in terms of being able to stay nextdoor to a son or daughter who is a patient. These renovations DO NOT impact the SCI Adolescent Program or our ability to take and care for patients in this program. Thank you for understanding. We look forward to offering patients and their families the new SCI Adolescent Suites in the future.
