Craig's "T. Rec." Programs
For more than three decades, Craig�s recreational programs have set the standard for rehab hospital recreation programs in the U.S., and our 10 nationally certified specialists have more than 203 years of combined experience.
At Craig Hospital, we understand that leisure-time activities help define who we are. Recreation is "re-creation", helping to give life fullness and meaning and keep people healthy. We have seen, over and over again, patients make dramatic improvement in their rehabilitation program after they have rediscovered their leisure-time activities. Our goal is to see that patients are given a chance to participate in a wide variety of satisfying recreational endeavors, because we know that fun is serious business.
Our former patients have discovered that there are no limits to their recreational opportunities. They have participated in everything from parasailing to luxury cruises to deep-sea diving. Their discovery began at Craig.
We have a new therapeutic recreation center with a horticultural center, pool table, kiln for pottery, ping-pong table, small theater T.V., and lots more. Craig has a full-court gymnasium, swimming pool, listening room with stereo, recreational information library, and weight-training room. In addition, we have various pieces of equipment that patients can try, including all-terrain vehicles, equestrian gear, hand-propelled three-wheeled cycles, stained glass equipment, and radio-controlled sailboats.
