Origami Rehabilitation Center Announces Major Expansion

 

Mason, MI – Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center announced today plans for a major expansion of facilities and services to begin in June 2015.  The $3.5 million expansion adds nearly 40% more residential capacity to Origami’s transitional and long-term care programs, as well as significantly larger clinical facilities highlighted by an advanced therapy gym, improved multi-purpose space, and upgraded office facilities.

 

A new 6-bed residence featuring private rooms in a 6,000 sf home-like setting will further expand Origami’s post-acute continuum of care for brain injury survivors to include an assisted living track in addition to the existing neuro-rehab and semi-independent living programs.  Additionally, the clinical expansion adds over 4,000 sf of clinical space and the installation of advanced therapy equipment allowing for significant growth of Origami’s outpatient services with the region’s most technologically advanced therapy gym devoted exclusively to brain injury rehabilitation. The development is expected to create over 20 new Lansing-area jobs in the coming year.

 

“This expansion allows us to maintain and grow our leadership position in the region’s brain injury rehabilitation community” said Tammy Hannah, Executive Director of Origami.  “The physical enhancements to our facilities will be reflected in both the effectiveness and efficiency of the care we provide to our clients, and in their ability to transition to greater levels of independence and quality of life”, Hannah continued, adding that the expansion affords Origami a significant increase in client capacity.  The announcement comprises the first phase of a five-part master growth plan for Origami.

 

Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center is a nonprofit organization operating in partnership with the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine and Peckham, Inc. Located on a 35-acre wooded campus just south of Michigan State University, the facility offers a comprehensive and individualized continuum of care for adults who have sustained mild to severe brain injury, from outpatient and community based programs to transitional and long-term residential care.  With a focus on utilizing the broadest spectrum of resources available to return clients to active and productive lives in the local community, Origami leverages the expertise of its partner organizations to consistently produce effective outcomes.
