    Responsibilities

    Our programs are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitative Facilities (CARF). Consider a career at the BARROW NEUROLOGICAL INSTITUTE (BNI) at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center where you will be a part of a dynamic healthcare team working in a world-renowned 52-bed state-of-the-art acute  REHABILITATION Center of Excellence. The BNI at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center has long been known for the amazing treatments, procedures and care that it provides to its patients. What many people don't realize is the road to recovery often doesn't end after initial treatment or surgery. Barrow's Inpatient Rehab Unit offers these patients and their families the assistance, knowledge and skills they need. We offer you the opportunity to care for the whole person, treat medically complex conditions, participate in new technology and treatments; and watch improvements while touching the lives of these patients in a ways that profoundly enhance their quality of life, and return them to the community.
