Letter from the President

Welcome to Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation! For the past 60 years, we have worked to create a dynamic rehabilitation environment — a unique place where treatment and technology, hope and determination come together to advance the recovery of each patient.

Robert H. Brehm, President

And today, because of our unwavering commitment to medical excellence, we are recognized as one of the world's leading rehabilitation hospitals.

As President, I am deeply honored to represent the more than 1300 employees who deliver the very best care and services to our patients each day. These are the people who really do make a difference through their words, their actions, their compassion and their skills. Together, they define what physical medicine and rehabilitation is all about. They set the standard of care for our field … and continually strive to raise that bar even higher.

We trust that our recently redesigned website will help to introduce you to the Kessler organization. This site was created to provide patients, families, our communities and our colleagues with information about the rehabilitation experience at Kessler: the unparalleled level of care, the scope of our services, the leading-edge treatment, and our innovative research, education, and advocacy activities. We hope that as you come to know us, you will see the passion and dedication that underscores everything we do.

Building upon our rich history, we will continue to address the complex needs of our patients and the challenges of an ever-changing health care environment. We will continue to channel our energies, our talents and our resources to develop the most clinically effective rehabilitation programs. And we will continue to focus on our patients, for we know that it is their individual success that will ultimately determine ours.

Robert Brehm
