Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital Presents Annual Grant to Montgomery County Stroke Association

Rockville, Md.Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital of Maryland presented its annual $3,000 grant to the Montgomery County Stroke Association (MCSA) last week, at the Upper County Chapter meeting.

Cal Horelick, MCSA president and former Adventist Rehab patient, accepted the giant “check” at the presentation. The grant will fund community programs, such as language therapy groups for stroke survivors and other social, recreational and outreach activities.

“The Montgomery County Stroke Association offers significant support for those affected by strokes in our community,” stated Doris Reinhart, vice president and administrator of Adventist Rehab. “It is an honor to give to an association so valuable in helping our patients and their loved ones get back to life.”

Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital has been donating $3,000 to the MCSA each year, for the past four years, in lieu of holiday gifts for hospital referral sources. The hospital also sponsors the Upper County Chapter meetings by providing a monthly meeting space for the caregiver and survivor support groups.

Prior to the grant presentation, Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital’s Dr. Matthew Brown presented a lecture on “Pain Management and Stroke,” at the Upper County Chapter meeting. Brown discussed types, causes and symptoms of pain that can occur following a stroke.

The Upper County Chapter of the MCSA serves residents in upper Montgomery County, including Rockville, Gaithersburg, Germantown, and other areas north. Meetings are held the second Wednesday of every month at Adventist Rehab’s Rockville location.

Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital holds accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) International in the area of stroke, as well as in the areas of brain injury, spinal cord injury and amputation. It is the only hospital in a five-state region to hold these prestigious accreditations in all four specialty areas.

Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital of Maryland is the first and only acute rehabilitation hospital in Montgomery County. The facility first opened our doors in January 2001 to offer specialized inpatient and outpatient treatment for persons with functional limitations. Services include comprehensive rehabilitation programs for brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, strokes, amputations, orthopedic injuries and surgeries, sports- related injuries, work-related injuries, cardiopulmonary conditions and neurological disorders. Adventist Rehabilitation Hospital of Maryland is part of the Adventist HealthCare, which includes hospitals, home health agencies and other health care services.
