Dedicated to Advancing the Art and Science of Rehabilitation

As a research and teaching hospital, Marianjoy clinicians are dedicated to advancing the art and science of rehabilitation. To advance their research and educational efforts, the hospital unveiled a new Conference and Education Center.

"The new conference center will enable our clinicians to collaborate with leaders from hospitals, universities, and professional organizations to develop practice standards that embrace opportunities to improve the quality of life for persons with disabilities," says Dr. Noel Rao, Marianjoy Medical Director and Director of the Marianjoy Residency Program.

The 7,700-square-foot meeting space is home to the Marianjoy Professional Learning Institute (MPLI), which provides education and training to health professionals in the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. The MPLI hosts medical experts from around the country, as well as many Marianjoy clinicians and researchers who are regarded as innovators in the field.
Since 2011, Marianjoy authors have contributed more than 50 scholarly articles to the scientific community. Additionally, they have presented 135 posters and platform presentations at 43 different professional conferences, both nationally and internationally.

The Conference and Education Center features four breakout rooms and cutting-edge multimedia/presentation systems for educational seminars and community events. Adjacent to the Conference Center is an environmentally-friendly Rooftop Garden, which is accessible to patients and visitors.

About Marianjoy

Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital provides rehabilitation care centered around the patient and their family. Marianjoy's interdisciplinary health care team evaluates not only the patient's present disability, but the impact the disability has on the whole person- mind, body, and spirit.

An integrated care team of physicians, specially trained therapists, and nurses, as well as psychologists, nutritionists, and chaplains shape a treatment plan designed to improve the patient's physical, perceptual, and communication abilities, while developing skills to compensate for any permanent disability. As rehabilitation specialists we are here to help, support, and encourage our patients and their families.

Marianjoy provides a continuum of care throughout a network of facilities and clinics enabling individuals to achieve their personal wellness goals, and create a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle. We become partners in healing, giving our patients the tools and skills they will need to continue to pursue life without limits.
