Rocky Mountain Regional Brain Injury System

The Rocky Mountain Regional Brain Injury System (RMRBIS) is centered at Craig Hospital which has rehabilitated 4,000 people with traumatic brain injury (TBI) over the last half century and is consistently recognized among the top rehabilitation facilities in the United States. First designated as a TBI Model System in 1998, RMRBIS includes all three Level I trauma centers, a Level II trauma center, and three long-term acute care facilities in the Denver Metro area, to provide a comprehensive interdisciplinary specialty system of TBI care for Colorado and the surrounding area.

In order to achieve the overall goal of conducting research that contributes to evidence-based rehabilitation interventions which improve the lives of individuals with TBI, RMRBIS is conducting two site specific research projects, participating in three collaborative research modules, contributing to the longitudinal TBI National Database, and maintaining a TBI Model System of care and research.
