New Video Explains Why Giving to Shepherd Center is an Investment in Society

As a comprehensive rehabilitation hospital for people with spinal cord and brain injury, multiple sclerosis and chronic pain, Shepherd Center provides many services that have a huge impact on a patient's recovery but are not funded by insurance. Among those services, which Shepherd Center considers medically necessary, are therapeutic recreation, sports teams, assistive technology and the chaplaincy program. These are the programs that help people see their is life and hope beyond their injury or disease.

In a new video, Shepherd Center's co-founders, president and CEO, physicians, donors and former patients explain the impact that donations have on the lives of patients and their families. President and CEO Gary Ulicny, Ph.D., calls these gifts "an investment in society" because these programs help people return to their homes, communities, and full and productive lives after rehabilitation.
