The center specializes in treatment and rehabilitation of patients who have experienced stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injuries and more.

The project made all patient rooms private, upgraded the gym and redecorated. New amenities, such as flat-screen, Internet-powered TVs in every room, new flooring and new furnishings were also incorporated. The hospital added iPads to its treatment arsenal, as well, which will be used during speech therapy and electrical therapy for stroke patients.

Former "CBS This Morning" and "48 Hours" anchor Mark McEwen will also share his story of rehabilitation from a massive stroke at the event. Reservations are required for McEwen's presentation; 250 spots available.
