WakeMed Rehab - Brain Injury Rehabilitation System (BIRS)
WakeMed's Brain Injury Rehabilitation System (BIRS) is the area's largest and most comprehensive brain injury program, serving over 200 brain injury survivors a year. Our inpatient hospital and outpatient brain injury programs are CARF accredited for adults and children & adolescents.
It is an integrated continuum of care capable of providing rehabilitative services to brain injury survivors of all levels of acuity and severity. Rehabilitative services are often initiated within 24 hours of injury. Other regional trauma centers often refer patients for rehabilitative services as soon as they are medically stabilized.
The goal of early intervention is to prevent secondary disability and shorten acute hospital stays by facilitating transition to a full rehabilitation setting sooner. When it comes to brain injury, early rehabilitation intervention is associated with better outcomes.
