NEW BUILDING REPORT

Things are different here.

Our patients feel it.   We know it.

 

The dramatic space. The sun-drenched rooms. The shared energy. The pulsing beat of a group fitness class. The vibrant display of fresh-from-the-kiln glazed tiles. The heightened community interest.  All combine to further define this place of hope and healing... this place of Remarkable Journeys.

FACILITY AND PROGRAMS

Not a day goes by without Dale Hull and Jan Black pinching themselves. Their dream has now become a 24,500 square foot reality. In a span of just 9 months, the de-bugging of the new build seems much more manageable now, the Wellness Squared programs are flourishing, and the Pediatric Program is expanding in a major way thanks to Intermountain Health Care.


PRESENTATION ROOM
There have been some unanticipated developments too. The Presentation Room on the lower level has become a mecca, of sorts, as visitors, community groups, and students come to learn what makes Neuroworx a one-of-a-kind facility in the United States.

The Presentation Room has also become home base for Team Neuroworx -- now 28 members strong. Along with canvasing the community with their Remarkable Journey stories, they now invite community groups and high school faculty and their classes to Neuroworx for further insights and a personalized tour of the facility. To date, Team Neuroworx has welcomed nearly 300 visitors to Neuroworx.

Congratulations are also in order for Team Neuroworx and their captain, Sam Arishita. They recently presented offsite to a Skyline High School audience of 97 students, bringing the total number of students who have heard the Team Neuroworx message to nearly 4,200 statewide. Thank you for your sacrifice and dedication.

CORPORATE TEAM BUILDING RETREATS
Neuroworx is excited to now offer the opportunity for corporate team-building activities, including wheelchair basketball.

Corporations will have access to our 24,000 square foot facility which includes a high-tech conference room -- flanked by a fully-equipped kitchen to facilitate catering and private lunches, a large presentation room, a full-size basketball court, and an arts and crafts studio. We provide games and activities aimed at teamwork, creativity, problem solving, communication, efficiency, and attention to detail in a sociable non-work environment.

Your team simply must play wheelchair basketball together. Believe us, it's a hoot! Please go to our website for more information about booking your Corporate Team Building Retreat.

ONGOING CAPITAL CAMPAIGN
We're not there yet and are still looking for funding sources for our new building. Whether through Naming Opportunities (major gifts, multi-year pledges) or donations to our Building Fund, we ask YOU, the community, for your help.

You can help by approaching your Human Resources or Marketing departments at your place of employment to see if your company has a:
  • matching gift program (your employer may match the money that you and your fellow co-workers donate to Neuroworx)
  • community grant program (offered by corporations who wish to make a positive impact in local communities)
  • automatic payroll deduction program (offered by employers who wish to make giving more effortless. If so, rally your co-workers to support Neuroworx on a monthly basis!)
  • annual giving program (your employer may encourage donations and fundraisers at certain times of the year -- why not suggest Neuroworx for this year?!)
 

Please let us know how we may help you in these efforts. Thank You, in advance, for your ongoing support and for advocating on our behalf.

PATIENT SPOTLIGHT
I listened, recently, as Josh Hinton spoke candidly about his paralysis to a group of students who were visiting Neuroworx. It was his maiden voyage as a member of Team Neuroworx and his trademark humor and smile were there to mark the moment.
 
Josh is your typical active overachiever, having been involved in cross-country, ballroom, ballet, and serving as the student body president at Stansbury High School in Tooele before his accident. It is precisely this strength of character and determination that push him forward today.
 

Josh has a tremendous support system in his parents, sisters, Team Hinton on Facebook, and LDS Missionaries around the world. Local Utah singer, Alex Boye, who visited and sang to Josh in the hospital (one of the ‘best days’ of his life), also dedicated his Tooele concert in March to Josh.
 
Neuroworx is honored to play a part in Josh’s Remarkable Journey. Here is his story, in his own words:

 


Last summer I was living the dream. I graduated from Stansbury High School and spent the summer dancing 10 hours a day at the Anaheim Ballet in Anaheim, CA. After summer was over, I chose to do a semester of school at BYU before leaving on my LDS mission. I was looking forward to dancing ballet at BYU and having a blast.

My family helped me move to BYU on August 26th, 2015. It was exciting and a little scary. To get to know people, I went to almost every activity during the week-long freshman orientation. After three nights of living on my own, on Saturday night I was playing on the grass field at BYU. A girl challenged me to a race through a bounce house obstacle course. My thought was, I can't get beat by a girl. Someone yelled 'Go' and we raced through the opening. I must have hit my head on the inflatable post inside the bounce house because immediately I could not feel my body. It was a struggle to breathe and I began to call out for help.  
 
An ambulance raced me to the hospital where I was told that I broke my C4, C5 & C6 vertebrae in my neck. A trauma doctor told me my life was changed forever and that I would never walk or dance again. My response to that doctor was, “Don’t tell me I won’t!”  
 
After 1 month in the Shock Trauma ICU and 3 months in a rehab hospital in Colorado, I came to Neuroworx. When I arrived here, I couldn’t transfer myself from my chair to the physical therapy table and I could barely scratch my own nose.


I cannot imagine having this injury without Neuroworx to help me every single day. It is a place of hope and hard work. Every day I wake up with a plan to do something great, and Neuroworx is the only way to do that. I know I have a future ahead of me and I can accomplish my dreams. It is Neuroworx that has made that future possible. The thing I love about Neuroworx is, not only do they work me really hard, they never “TELL ME I WON’T!"

We're happy to report that Josh can now transfer to his bed, chair, and PT table and proudly knot his own tie into a mean half-Windsor.
