The Texas Brain Injury Alliance reports that 144,000 Texans sustain a traumatic brain injury each year - one every 4 minutes. The Texas Department of State Health Services reports that approximately 72,500 Texas residents have strokes each year that require hospitalization. Now, more help is on the way.
Centre for Neuro Skills (CNS), a premier provider of treatment for traumatic and acquired brain injury, announced the grand opening date of its new clinic in Austin, Texas. The clinic will celebrate with an invitation-only open house on Thursday, June 24. Former CNS patients Justin Glick and Megan Guerra are guest speakers who will share their rehabilitation stories. The 17,000-square-foot facility is located at 14425 Falconhead Blvd., Building F, Suite 200, Austin. A virtual tour of the new facilities is available. To access the tour, please click here.
The Austin clinic is CNS’ fourth location in Texas, joining Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston. CNS also treats patients at three facilities in California. All CNS clinics offer a continuum of care approach to therapeutic rehabilitation and disease management services for those recovering from acquired and traumatic brain injuries.
“No two brain injuries are the same,” said CNS’ Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Matthew Ashley. “What sets CNS apart is our whole team focus on patients and their caregivers. This new clinic will allow us to provide localized quality care to brain injury patients in Austin and Central Texas, which will ensure better recovery. Our goal is to maximize independence and improve quality of life.”
Patient Success Story – Justin Glick
Former CNS patient Justin Glick and his wife Caroline relocated to Austin from Los Angeles in 2020. They have since had their first baby, Sienna. After sustaining a traumatic brain injury at work, Justin sought treatment at the CNS Los Angeles clinic. He made a remarkable turnaround in just 47 days. Justin had spent his career in a highly specialized profession – the collecting and selling of rare coins, jewelry and watches. He’s now a real estate agent with Coldwell Banker in Austin.
According to Justin, “the Centre for Neuro Skills has an amazing team that helped me literally get back on my feet and back to work. Caroline and I moved to Austin last year and absolutely love it. And now, we have our friends from CNS as neighbors. Austin is fortunate to have such an outstanding resource for brain injury rehabilitation.”
