Diseases and Conditions
Caring for patients with multiple, complex health problems is a specialty. Whether an older adult recovering from a stroke or a young patient with a traumatic brain injury, each patient has unique physical, mental and social needs. Understanding and meeting those individual needs is the singular focus of the J. Paul Sticht Center on Aging and Rehabilitation.
To provide the most advanced care in our community, the Sticht Center has gone outside the traditional boundaries of medical treatment. As a matter of fact, it is the only facility of its kind that offers geriatric medicine, rehabilitation, and psychiatry services all under one roof.
The Sticht Center is the Only Facility of its Kind—All Under One Roof
Despite "the roof" we don't look at our Center as a building, but rather a complete system of comprehensive care. Our philosophies, treatment and research touch people throughout the nation, not just the patients within our walls.
