Reshaping the Rehabilitation Landscape

At St. Luke’s, we’re committed to building a brighter future for each patient. We honor that commitment not only through our excellent care, but also through research. Each day, our clinical research experts are hard at work conducting groundbreaking research that improves the rehabilitation landscape. Whether conducting research through St. Luke’s alone, or in partnership with universities, medical schools, other hospitals or research centers, or industry sponsors, our goal is the same: to continue providing patients with the best possible rehabilitation outcomes.


Research That Matters 

  • Underlying causes and problems associated with rehabilitation conditions
  • The development and evaluation of new therapy interventions, drugs, devices and diagnostic tools
  • Clinical studies for impairment due to stroke, brain injury and spinal cord injury, and neurological, cardiac, pulmonary and orthopedic conditions in adults and children
