Mission Statement

Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital Partners Continuing Care is committed to delivering compassionate care across the health care continuum to improve quality of life for persons recovering from or learning to live fully with illness, injury and disability.

Background Statement

Founded in 1970, Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital Boston is the largest provider of rehabilitation medicine in New England. The hospital is unique in New England as a center of research, teaching and treatment in physical medicine and rehabilitation. Spaulding Boston's success is evidenced by improvements in our patients' physical function and quality of life following strokes, brain and spinal cord injuries, osteoporosis, burns, geriatric or pediatric conditions, multi-trauma, amputations and musculoskeletal or sports injuries. Each year since 1995, Spaulding Boston has been named by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top rehabilitation hospitals in the nation. Currently Spaulding Boston is ranked number five, and for the past twelve years has been ranked number one in New England.
 Spaulding combines the latest research with new approaches to therapy in both inpatient and outpatient programs. Each program is led by an interdisciplinary team of clinicians with expertise in specific conditions. We take pride in our clinicians’ ability to customize treatment to each patient’s needs. Inpatient programs include our Pediatric Unit, which cares for 130 infants, children, and youth each year. For the families with children whose lives have been changed by illness or disability, the strong supports provided by the clinical and child life staff on the pediatric unit are essential. We also offer unique programs such as the Young Adult Stroke Service which is treating the growing number of people under age 60 who have experienced stroke.

Impact Statement

Five Recent Accomplishments:

1. Spaulding has again been recognized as one the top rehabilitation hospitals in the country, achieving a rank of #5 in the 2015 US News and World Report “America’s Best Hospitals” issue. Spaulding continues to be the only rehabilitation hospital in New England ranked each year since 1995.

2. Doximity Residency Navigator recognized the Harvard Medical School Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Spaulding as the #3 residency program in 2015/2016. The program was also ranked as the #1 residency program in research output for physical medicine and rehabilitation.

3. Spaulding’s Dr. Joe Giacino, was featured on NBC's Dateline "On Assignment" series for his groundbreaking work for our Disorders Consciousness Program. The segment focused on the plight of persons with severe Traumatic Brain Injury.

4. In 2015, the Dean Center, in partnership with the Veterans Affairs Center for Innovation, HMS Dept of PM&R, MIT, and UC-Berkeley, hosted Lyme Innovation, the first ever hackathon for Lyme disease. The event ultimately developed projects leading to cutting-edge solutions for Lyme disease.

5. The Kelley Adaptive Sports Research Institute opened at Spaulding. The institute seeks to become the preeminent resource of data and information on adaptive sports programs.

Our major goals for the coming year include maintaining our rank as one the top rehabilitation hospitals in the county, and to continue to develop breakthrough research and grow our programs in order to provide the best treatment for our patients.   

Needs Statement

Our most pressing areas of need include research, the pediatrics department, outpatient, programs and inpatient services, and the Adaptive Sports program. We are seeking support to enhance our research efforts and meet the needs of our growing departments and programs.   

Support is needed for Spaulding physicians and other clinicians to conduct ongoing research to improve the lives of children and adults with disabling conditions.

In order to meet the growing needs of our pediatrics department, inpatient and outpatient services and programs, support is needed in the areas of advanced technologies and equipment with the aim to provide the best healthcare treatment plans for our patients.

Lastly, the support for the Spaulding Adaptive Sports Center is needed to continue to develop community partnerships and broaden the program's reach in Boston.

CEO Statement

Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital is a unique place where remarkable recoveries happen every day. We see many patients for whom recovery would seem to be a miracle. Our skilled clinicians look beyond the illness, inury, or disability to see the whole person, their family, their beliefs and their community.  They push patients to find their strength, to work hard, but always with compassion and care.  The new hospital facility we built in the Charlestown Navy Yard continues this tradition, providing improved therapy spaces and patient care facilities, advancing space for cutting edge research with the potential for global impact, and caring for the environment through "green" building practices. 
We are proud to be the only rehabilitation hospital in New England to be ranked by the U.S. News and World Report at number five in the nation.  But we are more proud of the work that happens every day at Spaulding, through our high quality patient care, innovative research, community based programs, and our advocacy for the inclusion of people with disabilities in every facet of daily life.

Community Based Services

As advocates for people with disabilities, we partner with other organizations to foster full inclusion. Programs are open to both current and former patients as well as people in the broader community we serve. We host groups such as the Greater Boston Chapter of the Spinal Cord Injury Association, which is housed at Spaulding, and the Boston Acquired Brain Injury Support group on site. We have developed partnerships with community-based organizations such as Partners for Youth with Disabilities. The Working Partners program is a partnership with the Massachusetts Rehabilitation Commission to provide employment services to people with disabilities. One of our largest and most successful programs is the Dr. Charles H. Weingarten Adaptive Sports and Recreation Program, which offers more than 500 children, youth, and adults with disabilities annually the chance to be outside and active. The program fills an important gap in the greaterBostonarea for affordable adaptive sports.

Program Short-Term Success 
Short-term success is measured in terms of immediate impact on clients and client satisfaction.
Program Long-Term Success 
The long term success of community based programs is measured by impact on the target community and may include improvement in physical function, quality of life, and other measures.  Each program sets its own goals and objectives.
Program Success Monitored By 
Success is monitored by surveys and other tools, depending on the nature of the specific program.
Examples of Program Success 
The following are quotes from participants in the adaptive sports program:
"Windsurfing requires me to face my greatest fear (loss of balance / falling) and when I’m on the board the sense of freedom from disability is exhilarating! I haven’t felt this sense of accomplishment in years. One doctor said I’d never walk again, and now I’m not only walking unassisted, but I’m windsurfing! I sent my surgeon a thank you note with a picture of me on the winsufing board! Thank you so much for providing these opportunities. They are truly wonderful!”
“I love the Adaptive Sports program because it has no barriers. I’m a paraplegic and I rode a hand cycle, canoed on theCharles River, and played tennis from my wheelchair after more than 20 years away from any activity. I am now very active. I recently joined a gym and am back into lifting weights and bodybuilding. Something I never thought I would be doing today!”

Inpatient Programs

 Spaulding offers centers of excellence in inpatient brain injury, spinal cord injury, and stroke care, as well as offering inpatient rehabilitation programs for amputee and vascular disease, musculoskeletal, and other disabling conditions. Each program is led by an interdisciplinary team of clinicians, including physicians, physical, occupational and speech therapists, social workers, and nurses. Unique inpatient programs include Young Adult Stroke program serving the growing number of patients under age 60 suffering strokes, and our Pediatric Unit, which cares for 130 infants, children, and youth each year. Spaulding’s Spinal Cord Injury Program was selected as one of only 14 Spinal Cord Injury Model System sites in the nation by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research.

Program Short-Term Success 
Short-term success is measured in patient progress at discharge and also in patient-family satisfaction with treatment and care. 
Program Long-Term Success 
Our goal is that the majority of our patients will return to their homes and communities and thrive.  No matter their level of disability at discharge, we strive to ensure that patients can live their lives to the fullest. 
Program Success Monitored By 
Spaulding has a number of tools used to determine our success.  Specifically review of medical charts ensures we can assess whether or not patients are meeting their treatment goals. In addition, we have a survey system in place to measure patient and family satisfaction with their treatment. 
Examples of Program Success  This goal is exemplified by Monica, a patient who lost all four limbs to a rare bacterial infection contracted during a C-section.  Monica was determined to return home to her two daughters and husband.  After four months of hard work in therapy including learning to use prosthetics, Monica acheived her goal.  Another example is Vincent, an army private who received a traumatic brain injury in Iraq.  He returned home in a vegetative state but through the care and rehabilitation he received at Spaulding is now walking and talking once more.  These and other remarkable recoveries are the types of success Spaulding strives to acheive every day.

Outpatient Programs

 Spaulding’s outpatient services are accessible across the greater Boston area and provide a number of unique services. These centers serve both former inpatients and others in the community needing rehabilitation care on an outpatient basis. Along with physical, occupational, and speech therapies for a variety of conditions, these centers offer other services such as fall risk assessment and prevention for seniors (Cambridge), pediatric care including communication services for children with autism spectrum disorders (Lexington), women’s health services and integrative medicine (Medford), pregnancy related pain services (Medford and Braintree), post-polio syndrome care (Framingham), arthritis management, chronic pain management, and sports injury care (Boston; multiple locations). One of the newest outpatient programs is the National Running Center which is dedicated to the prevention and treatment of running injuries.

Program Success Monitored By 
Program success is monitored by medical chart review of clinical outcomes and by patient satisfaction with their quality of care as measured through surveys.
Examples of Program Success 


Spaulding Boston is advancing the field through a number of research initiatives. The Motion Analysis Laboratory is studying interventions for people with gait disorders using high-tech equipment such as a robotic exoskeleton called a Lokomat. Recently the Laboratory was selected as one of only nine hospitals in the nation to test eLEGS, a personal robotic exoskeleton that allows people with lower body paralysis to stand and walk.  The Cardiovascular Research Laboratory is testing an innovative use of Functional Electronic Stimulation (FES), combined with a rowing machine, to offer full body exercise to people with lower-body paralysis. The Disorders of Consciousness program is studying the best possible treatment for patients with severe brain injury who are in a minimally conscious state. Still other researchers are studying gait changes in older adults, preventing bone loss in people with spinal cord injury, and muscle cell changes in ALS and other degenerative diseases.

Program Short-Term Success 
Short term success is measured by results from research studies and the potential for impact on clinical care.
Program Long-Term Success 
The long term success of research at Spaulding is measured in its translation to and impact on patient care.
Program Success Monitored By 
Success is monitored by the hospital committee which oversees research as well as Dr. Ross Zafonte, the Chief Medical Officer.
Examples of Program Success 
For Dave, the research programs at Spaulding have had a major impact.  Through the Cardiovascular Research Laboratory's Exercise for Persons with Disabilities program, he has regained significant muscle mass in his lower legs, after 15 years in a wheelchair, using a rower combined with Functional Electronic Stimulation.  The study's initial participants, all of whom had lower body paralysis. showed major improvement in cardiovascular function, muscle mass, and decrease in bone loss through this exercise modality.
For a young child named Nicholas, research at Spaulding has had a major impact.  Born with cerebral palsy, his family was told he would never walk, but because he was able to participate in clinical trials of the Lokomat at Spaulding, he is now standing and using a walker.  Spaulding's ability to translate research into patient care means patients have better access to innovations in therapy.

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
