CNS Opens New Irving, Texas Facility
Centre For Neuro Skills Opens New Irving, Texas Facility Designed To Deliver Advanced Care To Brain Injury Patients
New 40,000 square foot facility expands cutting-edge care to the community
IRVING, TX (January, 22 2020) — Centre for Neuro Skills (CNS), a premier provider of treatment for traumatic and acquired brain injury, announced today the opening of the company’s new clinic in Irving, Texas. CNS’ 40,000 square ft. facility, located at 4851 Regent Blvd., Suite 200, is now open and admitting new patients. The residential rehabilitation program will remain at its current location in Irving, just six miles from the new facility.
“We relocated the Irving Centre for Neuro Skills’ clinic to enable us to serve more people within the same community and continue delivering high-quality, advanced care to patients and their families,” said CNS Founder and Chief Executive Officer Dr. Mark Ashley.
“What sets us apart from other rehabilitation facilities is our focus on brain injury and individualized treatment for each patient. Our new, larger location is designed to provide patient therapy every moment they’re in the facility with the end goal of maximizing independence and quality of life.”
Patient-centered approach to treating brain injury
CNS, highly regarded for its expertise in stroke treatment and experienced staff, will continue its individualized care in the new location. Approximately two-thirds of the patients at the Irving clinic are being treated for stroke-related issues. CNS Texas, which includes facilities in Irving, Fort Worth and Houston, was recently honored with a three-year accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF International).
The Irving center’s many advanced-care features include:
- Programs for vision, neurobehavior, cognitive retraining, speech, physical and occupational therapy provided by highly trained and certified clinical therapy staff
- The ZeroG® Gait and Balance System with an extended track
- Individualized counseling as well as family counseling (a hallmark of CNS support)
Brain injury and its devastating and costly effects
Traumatic brain injury (TBI), caused by traumatic forces to the brain, is most commonly caused by car crashes, falls, sports injuries, explosive blasts, objects falling on the head and sharp objects penetrating the skull.
Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) is classified as a non-traumatic brain injury or disease such as stroke, encephalitis or other infectious diseases, anoxic/hypoxic injury (lack of oxygen to the brain), aneurysms, seizure disorders, surgical procedures and toxic exposure.
- According to the Texas Brain Injury Alliance:
- 144,000 Texans sustain a traumatic brain injury each year—one every 4 minutes
- More than 381,000 Texans live with a disability due to a TBI
- More than 5,700 Texas residents are permanently disabled by traumatic brain injury each year
- According to the Brain Injury Association of America, the total annual national incidence of TBI is 2,617,000.
- The CDC reports that acute care and rehabilitation of brain injury patients in the United States costs about $9 billion to $10 billion per year. This does not include indirect costs to society and families.
CNS’ new state-of-the art clinic offers space to accommodate a wider population of day neuro and residential post-acute brain injury patients. It is located at Connection Park I, a newly developed complex, surrounded by a vibrant village center adjacent to Interstate 635 and minutes from area airports and hotels. Additionally, the larger space unites clinical and administrative staff under one roof, enhancing team cohesion - a critical component to CNS’ approach to patient care.
