The Regional Leader for Industrial Rehabilitation for All Types of Work-Related Injuries (Including the Hand)
Opened in the early 1970s, CWRS began as a heavy equipment workshop with the primary purpose of restoring maximum function to industrial workers recovering from traumatic upper extremity injuries. Since then, the program has expanded and become the regional leader in work rehabilitation and the prevention and treatment of all types of work-related injuries including, but not limited to, those involving the hand.
