As National Brain Injury Awareness month takes center stage this March, Nexus Health Systems is reminded of the lasting impact brain injury has on patients and their families. The Brain Injury Association of America estimates over 3 million children and adults sustain either an acquired or traumatic brain injury a year, affecting their thinking, reasoning, emotions, memory, and other functions.
For the past 25 years, Nexus has advocated and worked with over 30,000 patients across our neurocontinuum of care. At our recent anniversary event, Founder Dr. John W. Cassidy said, “As a family, we Nexans need to pause and reflect on the patients and families we have taken care of in the past quarter century. It is also a time for us to celebrate the commitment to our mission.”
It has been our privilege to take part in our patients’ rehabilitation journeys, observing milestones and working hard to improve skills and reduce deficits. This National Brain Injury Awareness Month, Nexus celebrate our patients and their families, our medical team, and our support staff.
