Miland E. Knapp Rehabilitation Center celebrates 50 years of teamwork

Hennepin Healthcare’s Miland E. Knapp Rehabilitation Center is celebrating its fiftieth year of helping patients return to their homes after severe injury or illness. To mark the occasion, the nationally recognized Center is holding an open house on Sunday, July 14 from 2-5pm at Hennepin Healthcare’s Clinic & Specialty Center, 715 South 8th St. in Minneapolis.

The Miland E. Knapp Rehabilitation Center (Knapp Rehab) is an acute inpatient specialty program of Hennepin Healthcare serving adolescent and adult patients who have been traumatically injured or disabled.

“Our legacy of caring for patients began in an area with only four rooms shared by four patients each,” explains Geoffrey Roe, RN, Nurse Manager of Knapp Rehab. “Of course the center itself, therapies and interventions have changed over time, but the commitment to providing state-of-the-art, compassionate care has remained the same.”

Current and former patients, families and staff are invited to attend the event that will include a short program, refreshments, and time for listening to patients share stories of how they overcame dramatic physical and emotional barriers with the support of Knapp Rehab professionals.
