EDISON, NJ - In 1974, a 36-bed Rehabilitation Institute was established from the merger of Middlesex Rehabilitation Hospital and JFK Medical Center. Thanks to a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Jr. and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, patients now have comprehensive rehabilitation care close to home.
Now, 40 years later, the JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Institute continues to provide rehabilitation services and seamless care to adults and children. Johnson Rehabilitation (JRI) has grown through medical leadership and innovators in their fields, performing research, authoring papers, and teaching the next generation of rehabilitation leaders.
In recognition of JRI’s outstanding achievements, US News & World Report has once again named the JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Institute one of the best hospitals in the nation for rehabilitative services. Only 3% of all hospitals in the country achieve this ranking. The success of the last 40 years is evident in every patient JRI has helped to achieve optimal functioning and independence.
