On Wednesday, July 14, Moody Neurorehabilitation broke ground on its third location, this one at Space Park, just down the street from Johnson Space Center. It will provide rehabilitation for up to 40 patients with post-acute brain injury and plans to offer outpatient services. According to the company website, Moody Neurorehabilitation Institute (Moody Neuro) provides personalized care to treat the unique challenges of brain injury with the singular purpose of achieving the best possible outcome for patients and their families.
“The space will be an ‘urban house’ design focusing on natural colors and textures to awaken patients’ senses during the recovery process,” according to a press release. “Other elements include private and transitional residential rooms, family apartments, an innovative therapy gym with advanced equipment, and an outdoor therapy courtyard.”
At the ceremony earlier this month, Moody Neuro administrators and board members broke ground on the new location.
“This addition to the Moody Neuro portfolio will build on our history and experience, helping individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) by providing state-of-the-art treatment areas, as well as extended space and opportunities for a strong, interdisciplinary approach to a larger population,” said Jeff Eppinette, President, and CEO of Moody Neuro.
Moody Neuro was founded by philanthropist Robert Moody, Sr. in 1982 after his son was seriously injured in an auto accident which resulted in brain injury. Since then, in locations in Galveston and Lubbock, Moody Neuro has served patients and been a pioneer in the field of brain injury rehabilitation.
Scheduled for completion early 2023, Moody Neuro will be located at 1275 Space Park Dr.
