Rising Concussion Rate Leads Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital To Expand
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA
started: 02/06/12 12:17 pm | updated: 02/06/12 12:17 pm
Bryn Mawr Rehabilitation Hospital in Malvern is spending $1-million on an expansion program and one part of that is more space and new facilities for its outpatient center for brain injuries and other neurological disorders.

In the past year, the number of patients suffering post concussion symptoms has increased 35 percent, with ages ranging from people as young as 11 and up to their 70’s.

Another part of the expansion includes a physical therapy facility opening this spring in West Chester.

Marketing Director Leighton McKeithen says, "we are actually currently treating 148 patients at the present time for concussions. People as young as 11 and up to their 70′s."

McKeithen doesn’t believe there are more brain-injured patients.

"I think, with the tremendous growth and awareness of concussion as a serious brain injury, more and more people are being aware of the need to get treatment, so we are needing to expand."

The expansion to the outpatient center for patients with brain injuries, he says, will allow the hospital to treat more people with better equipment and facilities.

"They need to start out in an environment that won’t over stimulate them, so the rooms that we’ll be providing will be specially sound deadened so the room noise level can be brought down and the lights can be brought down."
