Treating Brain Injury in Veterans and First Responders
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) affects nearly 1 out of every 3 military personnel deployed since 2001. These injuries also commonly affect First Responders. Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), also known as concussion, and moderate TBI can cause physical, emotional, cognitive, and behavioral symptoms.
This comprehensive program will provide interdisciplinary care to military Veterans and First Responders experiencing the long-term health effects of TBI. MRIBH is based on a national model designed by the Marcus Institute for Brain Health (MIBH), and is backed by the proven experience of MossRehab in treating patients with TBI.
How We Help
There is no out of pocket cost for this program, and we welcome Veterans of all discharge status. MRIBH will provide services in three phases: evaluation, intervention, and follow up.
During the evaluation, individuals undergo a three-day interdisciplinary evaluation to determine if the program is a good fit for them.
During the intervention phase, those accepted into the program are offered individualized treatment as part of a three-week intensive outpatient program.
Based on patient needs, team clinicians may include:
- Board-certified physician in TBI rehabilitation
- Rehabilitation therapists who understand the common symptoms of mTBI
- Mental health specialists who provide emotional support
- Integrative medicine specialists
For caregivers and family members, the MRIBH will offer education regarding the effects of traumatic brain injury and provide guidance needed to support their loved one.
Our team will follow up with patients after discharge and will connect patients with services in their community.

Marcus Institute for Brain Health
The Marcus Institute for Brain Health (MIBH) was started by philanthropist Bernie Marcus, co-founder of The Home Depot, and Chairman of The Marcus Foundation. The Marcus Foundation is a leader in Veterans' philanthropy focused on serving Veterans suffering from the invisible wounds of war.
The MIBH provides specialty care for military Veterans, First Responders, and retired athletes struggling with TBI and changes in psychological health. Patients at the MIBH are treated as a person first. Veterans of any discharge status are considered for admission.
This intensive outpatient program combines the best tools in traditional rehabilitation with complementary medicines modeled after the National Intrepid Center of Excellence at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
