Alexa Canady was the first woman and first African American to become a Neurosurgeon in America. The daughter of a doctor and a teacher, she grew up outside of Lansing, Michigan with her brother. The two were the only African American students in their school. Despite the odds and obstacles in her way, Canady excelled academically. She attended University of Michigan medical school, interned at Yale University, and was a Neurosurgery resident at the University of Minnesota before becoming the Chief of Neurosurgery at the Children's Hospital Detroit, Michigan in 1987 at the age of 36. Dr. Canady served in that role until retiring 18 years later. She is known for her excellent patient care and advancing the field of neurosurgery with new techniques. She was recognized by her home state and admitted to the Michigan Women’s Hall of Fame.
NeuroRehab Services is grateful to all those who have helped advance the fields of medicine and patient care. To learn more about African American heroes in medicine, click here.
National Patient Recognition Week is celebrated the first week of February each year, with February 3 being National Patient Recognition Day.
This week recognition was founded in 1995 to honor patients and give healthcare organizations the opportunity to "demonstrate that patients' needs go beyond the technical aspects of care to include compassion, empathy, and connection."
During Patient Recognition Week and every week at NeuroRehab Services, we honor our patients by providing each one with a customized approach to healing and addressing their traumatic brain injuries. We take the patient, family and loved ones into account when preparing and executing treatment plans and establishing goals. Together we maximize outcomes for all involved.
At some time in our lives, every one of us has been a patient. It’s likely that each of will be a patient again in the future. Caring for our patients and our loved ones during recovery takes continual commitment. Patient Recognition Week reminds us and healthcare professionals to renew their commitment to patient care beyond treating an illness.
NeuroRehab Services cares about our patients’ recovery. We renew our commitment to our patients and continually reaffirm our core values:
