About Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation
For over 60 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 state-of-the-science technologies that enable individuals with spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, stroke, amputation, neurological disorders, and musculoskeletal and orthopedic conditions to rebuild their lives.
Kessler is one of only six centers in the country to receive federal designation as a Model System for both spinal cord injury and brain injury treatment and research. 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.
