Boston, is the only facility of its type in the Northeast. We take pride in

acute care but not yet well enough to go home. While we’re best known as a
center of excellence in pediatric rehabilitation, we offer a full range of
services to children from the community and around New England. All of our
programs are family centric and designed to help each child reach his or her
fullest potential.
