Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center

A Translational Rehabilitation Environment Aimed at a Cure

The Christine E. Lynn Rehabilitation Center in Miami is a 270,000-square-foot comprehensive rehabilitation hospital designed to foster collaboration through translational design strategies. This new facility is a joint partnership between Jackson Health, the University of Miami School of Medicine and the Miami Project to Cure Paralysis — the largest, most comprehensive research effort in the world dedicated to finding a cure for paralysis.

As a translational rehabilitation hospital, the 72-inpatient-bed facility is designed to place clinical care activities and research within the same space, fostering collaborative moments of discovery and encouraging patients who witness the development of new therapies and technology that improve their lives.

Both the inside and the outside are designed to incorporate the entire environment into patient therapies. Areas for recreation, relaxation and motivation are woven into the site design to extend patient rehabilitation to the outdoors.  

Steeped in state-of-the-art technology for rehabilitation therapy such as robotics and an integrated therapy system, the new facility also includes transitional apartments to enable patients and their families to prepare for returning to their homes while in close proximity to clinical support.

The hospital delivers both inpatient and outpatient care, and a wide array of support services for patients with spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries and burn injuries, as well as services including neuropsychology, stroke treatment and recovery, and cancer, pediatric and transplant rehabilitation.
