Traumatic Brain Injury and Coma Recovery Unit

The 25-bed Traumatic Brain Injury and Coma Recovery Unit (TBI), the only New York State Department of Health-approved program of its kind in Brooklyn, is a specialized service within the Rehabilitation Institute. It serves adults with head injuries and neurological conditions resulting from:

  • Violence
  • Vehicular Accidents
  • Brain Tumors
  • Anoxia
  • Hemorrhagic Stroke
  • Head Injury (Secondary to Falls)

The services of Kingsbrook's TBI Unit are individualized because no two people with brain injuries are exactly alike. Patients in coma are treated in order to improve alertness, responsiveness, and to prevent physical deterioration. The primary goal of the program is to assist patients in achieving maximum independence by the time of discharge and begin the process of reintegration into the community.
