For more than 65 years, Kessler Institute has pioneered the course of physical medicine and rehabilitation. Today, as the nation's largest single rehabilitation hospital, we continue to define this field — providing the highly specialized care, advanced treatment and leading-edge technologies that enable individuals with spinal cord injury, brain injury, stroke, amputation, neurological diseases, musculoskeletal and orthopedic trauma, and cardiac conditions to rebuild their lives.
Kessler is one of only eight centers in the country to receive federal designation as a Model System for the treatment and research of both spinal cord injury and brain injury treatment and research, a distinction we hold with the Kessler Foundation. That same level of expertise and experience distinguishes each of the comprehensive rehabilitation programs offered at our three New Jersey campuses. Perhaps that's one reason why U.S. News & World Report ranks Kessler as one of "America's Best Hospitals" and why, each year, thousands of individuals from across the country choose Kessler for their rehabilitation.
