Two volunteer board members of the Brain Injury Coalition of Central New York recently visited staff members of the Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center at St. Camillus in Syracuse to deliver a $1,000 gift to help augment the specialized brain injury care programs at St. Camillus.
The gift will be used to purchase a new iPad, keyboard case, and apps designed to assist St. Camillus brain injury rehabilitation patients in their recovery. The Brain Injury Center at St. Camillus is certified by New York State. St. Camillus’s 20-bed inpatient skilled-nursing unit is designed, equipped, and staffed specifically for the needs of people who have sustained brain injury.
