Advocacy: Voices for Rehabilitation
As a leading institution in the field of medical rehabilitation, Kessler firmly believes it has a public responsibility to make rehabilitation care and services accessible to all individuals who need them in the most cost-effective way.
We encourage our medical, clinical and administrative leaders to be actively involved with professional organizations and associations, voluntary health organizations and civic and community groups.
Given our more than 60 years of experience and expertise in the field, we also believe we can provide education and insight to public policy makers and health care insurers, as well as the general public, to encourage the proper and prudent use of medical rehabilitation services for those who need them. Members of our leadership teams are regularly asked to serve as expert advisors and consultants to local, state and federal governmental agencies on various legislative and administrative issues, as well as to independent research and other organizations. These activities often put Kessler Institute in the news, helping to draw attention to key issues through stories about our patients, their problems, needs, and successes, and the professionals who provide care for them.
Kessler accepts this role and its responsibilities with great pride, but also with great focus. Ours is a well-respected voice in the on-going discussion of the many serious and often complex issues surrounding the affordability and delivery of medical rehabilitation services to patients in need.
