  • The main hospital at our Irving Street campus in Northeast DC National Rehabilitation Hospital specializes in treating persons with physical disabilities caused by spinal cord and head injuries, stroke, arthritis, amputation, multiple sclerosis, post-polio syndrome, and other neurological and orthopedic conditions. It has grown from a single hospital to The NRH Medical Rehabilitation Network providing inpatient and outpatient care and day treatment programs. The network provides nearly 200,000 ambulatory visits annually in addition to the hospital�s more than 1,700 inpatient admissions. Physicians nationwide consistently rank NRH among "America�s Best Hospitals," as reported by U.S. News & World Report.

    NRH Regional Rehab is our physical rehabilitation network, offering convenient and comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation services in the District of Columbia, Baltimore and suburban Maryland. Services are designed especially for people who are able to live at home but require ongoing or periodic medical care, therapy, or other treatment. These services focus on evaluation, treatment, functional restoration, injury prevention, and safe return to work, recreational, and other activities.

    NRH Regional Rehab�s board-certified physicians and teams of physical and occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, psychologists, vocational rehabilitation counselors, and other clinicians have the credentials needed to meet the needs of patients with a wide range of neurologic, orthopedic, and musculoskeletal conditions. Several Regional Rehab facilities are partnerships with Suburban Hospital, a leading acute-care hospital and designated trauma center in Montgomery County, Maryland. Others are partnerships with Calvert Memorial Hospital, Calvert Physical Sports Therapy and Fitness Center, and St. Mary�s Hospital in southern Maryland.


NRH's Sports & Recreation program is part of BlazeSports America, a national organization dedicated to maximizing the potential of people with disabilities through sports. Introduced in 1998, the organization works to assure that opportunities to grow and develop through sports training and competition and ongoing active lifestyles become as readily available for children and adults with physical disability as they currently are for non-disabled Americans.

Currently, the NRH chapter offers weekly programs in basketball, tennis and rugby.
