Why is this conference offered free of charge to rehabilitation professionals?

Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare has a long-standing history of providing quality rehabilitation services to its patients. It is also highly committed to promoting the educational needs of rehabilitation professionals on its own campus and far beyond. Due to the small number of conferences offered in the western United States that are specific to aphasia, TBI and dysphagia rehabilitation, Casa Colina is establishing this inaugural conference dedicated to the discussion of neurologically-impaired communication disorders. The conference is offered at no cost to professionals in the fields of speech language pathology, neuropsychology, occupational therapy and other related professions to further the education and understanding of neurologically-based communication disorders and, in turn, to help improve patient outcomes everywhere.

About Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare

Casa Colina Hospital and Centers for Healthcare was founded in 1936 to provide rehabilitative care for children with polio. In 1959, its hospital in Pomona, Calif., was completed, expanding its services to treat people of all ages with neurological and/or orthopedic disabilities. More recently, Casa Colina’s 20-acre campus renovations have broadened its services to include highly specialized medical surgical care. Casa Colina was recognized by Modern Healthcare in 2015 as the 13th largest rehabilitation provider in the United States. Its current campus includes a state-of-the-art acute rehabilitation hospital, medical surgical hospital, outpatient center, residential rehabilitation center, children's services, adult day health care, specialized physician clinics, diagnostic imaging, ambulatory surgery center, outdoor recreation program, a medical office building, and more.
