Leaders in Brain Injury Rehabilitation

Since 1982, Moody Neuro has pioneered post-acute brain injury treatment and rehabilitation using innovative techniques, strategies and therapies. We treat patients holistically with a team that works together to achieve the best possible outcome for patients by addressing cognitive, behavioral, and physical limitations, and developing a personalized treatment plan. As a CARF-accredited, 501(c)(3)non-profit organization, we are focused on helping people rather than profits. Our unique approach emphasizes personalized care, centering around community re-entry and maximized quality of life.

While our goal is to restore the lives of brain injury survivors, we help to restore their families as well. Our case managers assist patients and families throughout the rehabilitation journey, while they discover their new way of living.

As providers of a full continuum of care, Moody Neuro operates three facilities in the state of Texas, including two post-acute rehabilitation facilities in Houston and Lubbock, and one long-term living facility in Galveston. Each location is staffed by experienced and dedicated professionals who are passionate about what they do,take personal responsibility for the care of our patients, and develop lasting relationships with them.


Our desire to focus on brain rehabilitation is deeply rooted in a father’s love for his child. Philanthropist Robert L. Moody, Sr. founded what is today Moody Neurorehabilitation Institute after his son Russell was seriously injured in an auto accident that resulted in a traumatic brain injury. Recognizing a dire need for brain injury rehabilitation resources, Mr. Moody immersed himself in understanding neurorehabilitation techniques, strategies and therapies developed by some of the top neurological hospitals and rehabilitation centers in the world. Shortly thereafter, the Galveston facility was created to bring the highest quality of care to Russell and others. With the addition of a post-acute center located in Houston and Lubbock, as well as a long-term care facility in Galveston, Moody Neuro now serves patients from across Texas and around the country. Over forty years after its founding, Moody Neuro has gained a reputation as a “pioneer” in the field of brain injury neurorehabilitation, embracing a rich history of research, therapeutic innovation, and life-changing breakthroughs in brain injury rehabilitation.
