Cygnet Health Care opens neuropsychiatric rehabilitation service

Cygnet Health Care has opened a new neuropsychiatric rehabilitation service in Barnsley, South Yorkshire.

Pindar House is a 22-bed facility for men over 18 years old with neurological conditions and acquired brain injuries.

The facility is designed to provide an engaging therapeutic environment that includes multiple therapy spaces, communal and quiet lounges and is accessible for all residents.

It will aid the recovery of patients affected by acquired brain injuries, as well as provide longer term care to help and manage progressive neurological conditions, such as Huntington’s disease.

Hospital manager Jackie Ewington said: ‘We have a carefully designed rehabilitation model which is formulated to maximise the potential and ability of each service user. We will put patients at the heart of their treatment and offer a wide range of activities and therapies to promote independence. We’ll be doing lots of activities and our outside space will be used to the maximum to get the men out and about moving, active and engaged.’

Dr Tony Romero, chief executive officer of Cygnet Health, said: ‘We are delighted to announce the opening of Cygnet Pindar House, which will support the healthcare network in Yorkshire and the Humber to deliver highly-specialised neuropsychiatric care.

‘As an organisation committed to making a positive difference to the lives of our patients and their loved ones, we’re looking forward to providing bespoke support to those who need our specialist care.

‘We are also pleased to be bringing new jobs and investment into the local economy and are committed to working together with the local community.’
