Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) program

The spinal cord system of care offers a full complement of comprehensive rehabilitation services delivered by an interdisciplinary team of physicians, therapists, nurses, psychologists, licensed assistants and technicians in a CARF accredited facility.  We are fully equipped and staffed to meet the needs of patients with spinal cord injuries or diseases as they move through our system of care at CAMC.

Our services address the medical/physiological complications from the injury associated with the level of impairment of the patient, functional limitations related to activity/disability, and barriers that may interfere with participation in community activities.  At CAMC, we are committed to serve as an advocate to facilitate the removal of barriers that limit participation and encourage societal advantages for each patient.  Patients are followed throughout their lives in either the inpatient or outpatient program.

Support Group

The SCI/SEA support group meets on the third Wednesday of every month on the Medical Rehabilitation unit at CAMC General Hospital.  Meetings are held at 2:30 p.m.  The purpose of this group is to support, educate and promote awareness for future patients and survivors, as well as give current patients the opportunity to meet survivors and help facilitate a positive transition to new challenges.  Please call (304) 388-3920 for more information.
