Stroke Recovery Program

CARF GoldSealA stroke can be devastating, robbing people of their mobility, speech, independence and freedom to live life. But recovery from stroke is possible. Research shows that early and specialized rehabilitation can help maximize a person's physical and cognitive recovery and enhance quality of life.

When it comes to stroke care, recovery and rehabilitation, where you go matters. And it can impact your healing and future quality of life. Valley Baptist is the only CARF-Accredited Stroke program in the Lower Rio Grande Valley. We also treat more stroke patients than the national average. In fact, 30% of our patients are stroke patients so we understand their needs and stroke recovery methods that work.

Our Stroke team also involves patients and their family members at every step of the treatment process, so that everyone can make informed decisions about inpatient and outpatient services, follow-up care, home adjustments and other special needs.

Our goal-directed approach to stroke rehabilitation focuses on helping patients:

  • Regain mobility and improve balance
  • Learn the skills necessary to perform daily activities
  • Improve speech and swallowing
  • Develop new cognitive and behavioral strategies to compensate for any deficits

For more information about rehabilitation services at Valley Baptist, please contact our Harlingen location at (956) 389-2323 or our Brownsville location at (956) 698-5500.

30 percent are Stroke patients, which is higher than the national average. 71% RETURN HOME.

More of our stroke patients return home compared to the national average of 63.7%.
