Rose Centre for Stroke Recovery and Research

The Rose Centre for Stroke Recovery and Research is a state of the art facility at St Georges Medical Centre that helps individuals with swallowing and communication disorders recover function or improve sufficiently to gain the best possible quality of life.

We encourage our patients to take an active role in the development of rehabilitation strategies for themselves and future patients. 

The Rose Centre was established in 2014 through the generosity of Mrs Shirley Rose, who spent many of her final years tending to the disability created by stroke in her husband.
