Choose Your Impact: Rehab Medicine

Preparing for independence and enhancing quality of life

Rehabilitative care at HMO is world-class. Its reputation comes from an extraordinarily compassionate and well-trained staff that has access to the most up-to-date technology.

Patients who suffer a stroke or traumatic brain injury, or have orthopedic or neuromuscular conditions, are among the primary beneficiaries of the multidisciplinary rehabilitation care at Mount Scopus. The in-patient facility functions at 100% capacity; outpatient services are integral and critical to patient recovery.

Eleven-year-old Adi Huja was severely wounded in a terrorist attack at a Jerusalem pedestrian mall in 2001. Metal nuts were scattered throughout her body, especially her leg. As she lay near death in a Hadassah Medical Organization operating room, doctors decided to try an experimental drug. They also decided not to amputate. The drug kept her alive through the darkest days. She bravely faced multiple operations and long, intensive rehabilitation therapy at HMO. Her devoted doctors, nurses and therapists were determined that she would walk again. Eleven years later, in 2012, Adi walked gracefully and purposefully onto the stage at Hadassah's Centennial Celebration. Her smile, and her "thank you, Hadassah" spoke volumes.
