Successful addition welcomes acute-care rehabilitation patients of every age

The need was clear. Meadowbrook’s Traumatic Brain Injury program, which is the only one in the state of Kansas, couldn’t accommodate an ever-growing patient waiting list. They needed to expand to provide private, state-of-the-art rehabilitation rooms that serve a higher-acuity population. Preferred Care’s vision for Meadowbrook Rehabilitation Hospital was to create a campus that integrates patient-centered care philosophies while attracting this younger population in need of short-term rehabilitation.

Meadowbrook partnered with Aptura and made the strategic decision that the new Traumatic Brain Injury addition should be the focus of the community.


Rehab patients work in defined areas that cater to their needs. Energizing colors and a focal wall work together to create interest and excitement in the space.
