Hospital Rehab Facility Partners

Hospital/Rehab Facility Partners

Today, almost 2 million Americans have experienced amputations or were born with limb difference. Another 28 million people are at risk for amputation. Hospital and rehab facilities across the country see the importance of peer support as an effective intervention to assist their patients as they cope with limb loss. The Amputee Coalition offers partnerships with these facilities to share our expertise, training curriculum and patient education materials so that the hospital can easily integrate a highly successful peer support program into their rehabilitation framework.*
