Supporting Survivors of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Supporting patients who have suffered a serious brain injury is the goal of a new partnership between Medical City Plano and the Brain Injury Network of Dallas, also called BIND.

Medical City Plano is a leader in neurosciences. The Brain and Spine Hospital, at Medical City Plano, houses one of the nation’s largest neuro intensive care units. The hospital provides leading-edge treatment for brain trauma and tumors, life-saving interventions for stroke and brain attacks, as well as treatment for complex spine disorders.

Medical City Plano was the first hospital in Dallas, Collin, and Denton Counties to be accredited as a Comprehensive Stroke Center by the State of Texas. The facility has one of the few brain suites in the state along with an expert team of neurologists and neurosurgeons on-call 24 hours a day for our patients’ immediate care. Patients who don’t get immediate care at a high level stroke center are at increased risk of long-term brain injury.

“The partnership with BIND reinforces our commitment to supporting patients who have suffered a serious brain injury. Medical City Plano provides comprehensive care for patients, while BIND helps survivors integrate back into independent living.” says Charles Gressle, CEO of Medical City Plano.

Whether the condition is the result of a stroke, or another traumatic injury, BIND provides services for adult brain injury survivors. Such services help patients relearn life skills, increase self-esteem, and develop confidence in their ability to contribute productively.
Medical City Plano is the title sponsor for BIND’s 3rd Annual Fall Luncheon and Silent Auction on Saturday, October 24th, 2015. The event will be at the Plano Marriott at the Shops at Legacy in Plano, Texas, beginning at 11am. Guest speaker, Dr. Lori Cook, will present “Brain Hope for Brain Injury: Resilience and Regeneration.”
