Burcham partners with Origami to help brain injury clients

To improve treatment options for brain injury clients, Burcham Hills and Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center are collaborating to offer “Origami at Burcham Hills,” the region’s only inpatient treatment program designed exclusively for adults who require skilled nursing care following a brain injury.

The partnership brings together two of the region’s leaders in rehabilitation and allows an interdisciplinary approach of Origami’s brain injury specialization and Burcham’s broad-based rehabilitation and skilled nursing care.   

“Recovering from brain injury is unique for each person and requires an individualized approach,” explains Tammy Hannah, Origami executive director.  “Our partnership with Burcham enhances our inpatient treatment options.”

“We believe many clients will benefit from this innovative program,” says Pam Ditri, Burcham executive director.  “Partnering with Origami will enhance quality of care for our brain injury clients.”

“Origami at Burcham Hills” will provide 24/7 skilled nursing care and physical, occupational, recreational and vision therapy, along with vestibular and psychological rehabilitation.

Origami Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center is a non-profit organization operating in partnership with Michigan State University’s College of Osteopathic Medicine and Peckham Inc.   With a focus on returning clients to active and productive lives, Origami leverages the expertise of its partner organizations to consistently produce effective outcomes.  

Founded in 1974, Burcham Hills, a not-for-profit, continuum of care community, offers quality living in its Resident Center and short-term rehabilitation and skilled nursing care in its Center for Health & Rehabilitation.  Burcham also offers onsite physical, occupational and speech therapy to the public in its Outpatient Therapy Clinic.
