Date:2/23/2009

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As more health information is compiled on medical sites on the Internet, people are becoming increasingly aware and attentive to their medical conditions and seeking out information online.

In an effort to provide expert information and useful resources, Brooks established the Brooks Community Resource Center (www.brookscommunityresourcecenter.org). The Resource Center is a computer-based learning environment that has detailed information regarding rehabilitation conditions, including Brooks' main areas of concentration in stroke, brain and spinal cord injury, hip fracture, orthopedic and pediatric rehabilitation.

Information obtainable on the Resource Center site includes:

  • Links to community services
  • A robust and easily searchable online resource library that will serve as an extensive repository of rehabilitation services organized by topic area
  • Education for family members to learn more about the injury and rehabilitation of a family member who has been discharged from the hospital
  • Up-to-date education and research information related to the full continuum of rehabilitation care for the community and patients
  • A searchable online peer reviewed journal database

The Community Resource Center contains easily searchable information about diagnosis specific information, prevention information, local resources, national resources, recreation information, transportation, funding, schooling, travel, links to support for caregivers and patients and much more.

"The Brooks Community Resource Center will act as a helpful guide for the entire community to find expert information regarding their particular questions and medical conditions," said Doug Baer, president and CEO of Brooks. "We feel this initiative will improve the health and well being of our community in accordance with our mission."

For more information, please visit the Brooks Community Resource Center's Web site at www.brookscommunityresourcecenter.org.
