A neurological and complex trauma rehabilitation centre backed by John Charcol senior technical manager Ray Boulger will launch in February 2017.
Boulger is chairman of STEPS Rehabilitation, which will give intensive therapy to people from the age of 18 who have survived a stroke or brain, spinal or complex trauma injuries.
The centre (pictured) will be based near Sheffield and will help patients from the area who previously had to travel miles for care.
STEPS will employ more than 100 people and will have 23 ensuite bedrooms, a rehabilitation gym, a hydrotherapy pool and a café.
Boulger says: “We know that if we harness patients’ individual drive and desire and add our commitment and care, we will achieve optimal results. We can offer patients the tools with which to push their own recovery to its pinnacle.”
STEPS will work with Hallam and Sheffield Universities on research and development.
It will also work with The Stroke Association, Headway and other charities to help its own and other patients.
The centre got a grant from Sheffield City Council to help with development.
