This peaceful retreat for visiting patient families is an homage to CNS' first patient, Steve Ashley, who was the brother of CNS Chief Executive Officer and founder Dr. Mark Ashley. Steve’s devastating brain injury at age 21 left him helpless and dependent on others for care. His journey inspired Dr. Ashley to create a residence that would enable families to visit patients throughout the rehabilitation process. Steve Ashley House thus became a model for the CNS philosophy and practice, offering an environment of coordinated therapy and community inclusion. The residence was created to provide short-term lodging for family members of residential patients at CNS who are limited by distance and resources in the Dallas area.
