Welcome to the Richmond Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center

The Richmond Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center (PRC) within Central Virginia VA Health Care System is one of 5 facilities in the country designed to provide intensive rehabilitative care to Veterans and Active Duty Servicemembers who experienced severe injuries to more than one organ system.

Polytrauma is defined as two or more injuries sustained in the same incident that affect multiple body parts or organ systems and result in physical, cognitive, psychological, or psychosocial impairments and functional disabilities. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) frequently occurs as part of the polytrauma spectrum in combination with other disabling conditions, such as amputations, burns, pain, fractures, auditory and visual impairments, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and other mental health conditions. When present, injury to the brain is often the impairment that dictates the course of rehabilitation due to the nature of the cognitive, emotional, and behavioral deficits related to TBI. For more information about Polytrauma, visit the national Polytrauma System of Care page.
