The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Center (BIRC) in Portland, Oregon adds physical therapist, Ruth Holloran with DPT earned from the Mayo Clinic.
By: Lisa Cunningham - Community Liaison
Holloran earned her DPT from the Mayo clinic with an emphasis on neurologic rehabilitation. Her clinical interests include brain injury, spinal cord injury, and balance disorders. She also has research interests in neuroplasticity. When away from the clinic, Holloran enjoys spending time with her husband and baby girl; hiking, trail running, gardening, creative writing, and dancing.
Each BIRC team member, in addition to being an expert in his/her own field, understands critical aspects of every other discipline represented on the team. The BIRC team members work together to formulate the treatment plan, establish measurable goals and monitor client progress.
BIRC Clinical Director, Alana Raber, PhD said that PRA was pleased to hire someone of Holloran's caliber. “Ruth has a resume filled with neuro-rehabilitation and orthopedic rehabilitation, with great skills in balance interventions and movement disorders. We are happy to have her join our outpatient brain injury rehabilitation team!"
BIRC programs are accredited by the Commission of the Accreditation of Rehabilitation facilities, (CARF). CARF is the "Gold Standard" for rehabilitation facilities. It requires stringent and exacting standards of excellence in every aspect of professional conduct, treatment and business operations.
